When we were in Steamboat this past January I was against the lessons. I have been wakeboarding for years so I thought I could get snowboarding down pretty quickly. You know, same concept, board strapped to your feet and use your hips to maneuver. WRONG. My girlfriend talked me into a full day lesson and boy am I glad she did. wakeboarding is nothing like snowboarding other than the board being strapped to your feet. So, when I get to Breck in Dec. I'm definitely taking lessons again. Thanks for the awesome advice.
