Oh one more thing that's scaring me a bit is the whole chair lift thing! I've read so many horror stories about getting on and off these with a board... is it really that hard to do?
The friends that you are going with, are they experienced riders or new like you? If they have experience with lifts then they will help you out no problem. If not, befriend someone that looks experienced and have them help you. Lifts can be dangerous if you don't have guidance or a little help the first few times. After you learn it, its a breeze.
As for real snow being fast or slow. Don't stress those little details. You'll adjust easily and you will have an amazing time!!!
