I'm going to be taking a ski trip this spring break to Winter Park in Colorado. I have a pass that'd valid for 4 days, which is what I've booked my hotel based on. I also booked some lessons too of course. I've skiied before, but not since I was still in elementary school about 15 years ago (I was too afraid of falling as a kid, and after 5th grade I sadly moved away from a place that has snow). I know what the snowplow turn is and I know that you can only use it up to a point beyond which you HAVE to know how to parallel turn - and of course I've booked some all-important lessons.
A lot of sites seem to recommend that you spend a minimum of 3 days on the bunny slopes...but then I've heard the time to progress really varies a lot from person to person. So, how long did it take you to progress to the blue slopes? Did you ski them on your first ski trip? If so, did you lesson your way into them? Were you dragged down one by your impatient friends? Maybe you ended up on one accidentally?
I won't be TOO disappointed if I can still only do greens by Day 4, but I've seen some videos of the top of the scenic 3,100' vertical blue-green Village Way run and the view looks AMAZING from up there...but looking at the map you have to ski ~900' vertical of blue runs to get to the lift that services that part of the mountain.
