Have a ski trip in January and am considering taking a couple half-day lessons at Abasin. The lessons are very reasonable compared to other resorts. Thoughts?
I've never taken a lesson, but am a level 6/7 skier. Seeking to get more comfortable on un-groomed blacks and progress to starting to ski double blacks. This is also a unique opportunity where I will be solo for a couple of days, and I think I would get more out of the mountain skiing with an instructor to take me around.
I've never done Abasin before, but have always heard great things about it and am intrigued to check it out. I'm a little concerned about getting bad weather and being limited on Abasin, and I'd prefer to purchase lessons/tickets in advance to save money. On a related note, would be interested on best place to stay that is cheap and convenient. I'd prefer to do shuttles rather than rental car - not sure how feasible that is at Abasin.
Should I try someplace else? FWIW - I have done several trips to WP/MJ, a few days at Beaver Creek; will hit up Keystone, Copper, and WP/MJ over a couple of trips this season as well.
Also, looks like there might be one day of night skiing at Keystone when I am there. I know the Keystone lift ticket works at Abasin, but does the Abasin lift ticket work for Keystone night skiing?
