one quick word of advice... get an instructor for a couple of days... Go to the local mountain with the cheapest rates and do their lessons. They will teach you alot and get you over a huge learning hump.
totally took a lesson already, which was by far the best money i've spent so far. i know what my deal is, i get cocky after i've been doing good and just stop paying as much attention, forget to bend my knees as much, or sometimes just end up not keeping my weight on my front foot.......and then end up catching my heel edge. not sure how an instructor would help much.....but the advice is appreciated!!
