Like someone else asked, does she want to snowboard? Assuming the answer to that is "yes" - get her lessons. It will truly be the best thing for both of you. Everyone learns differently and good teachers can recognize this and accommodate it. Your approach may not be suited for her style of learning and some of your suggestions, though I'm sure well intentioned, may not be helping her at all. As frustrated as you are, you can be pretty sure that she is at least as frustrated. Have patience. And whatever you do, don't say to her "it's easy. You just do this" she might scratch your eyes out...just saying.
