In the US, not very far from windsor, Mt.Brighton, Mt Holly and Pine Knob, offer free beginner group ski lessons.
Rent some decent equipment from a ski speciality shop, and take some lessons. That's the best way to find out if your are going to like the sport.
I know the US/Canadian dollar exchnage rate is unfavorable, but check out BoyneUSA, Crystal Mountain, Nubs Nub, because when the the schools are out in March in Canada, they have been known to have "CanadianWeeks" promotions where they have taken the Canadian dollar at par, i.e, a Canadian dollar is equal to the US dollar, if you pre-purchase your lodging, lift tickets, and lessons. For food and drink, and other extras it don't think it applies, unless you buy the complete resort package at the Boynes.
