I can see how Snowbird could prove challenging for a beginner. The place almost killed me
I would like to suggest that you come to Stowe for the Epic Ski Academy. Then you can go back to Snowbird and rip it up.
Your equipment also concerns me. Get advice from only the best.
It's going to take more than 1 ESA for OP to rip up the bird - a lot more.

Being polite & PC will only build self esteem. Unfortunately, Mother Nature haven't attended the corporate sponsored sensitivity class and certainly couldn't care less about ones self esteem. Respect her and learn to dance with her. You'll have way more fun.
