I wish I would have taken lessons. My brother gave me a few pointers, he didn't even start me out on the bunny hill, instead took me to a green where it was steep off the lift.
Didn't make it far until I caught an edge and hit my head(without a helmet
). That left me with a headache the rest of the day and made it less fun. I learned by trial and bruises, but I wouldn't recommend that to anyone. Get a lesson, buy or rent a helmet, and it will be more enjoyable.
And have fun!
