Either at brian head or mount charleston is where ill be taking the lessons. I was talking to a snowboard shop rep and he told me to take lessons, instead of buying a board now wait and get lessons first. My question though is should i do group or private lessons? I can get up easy enough but other than that I suck! For a 2 hour group lesson its about 90 dollars for 2 hours private is around 160 dollars.
PRIVATE! It is so worth it! I come from a longboarding background and thought I would know what to do...BOY WAS I WRONG. So I got a private lesson and that same day I was riding greens from the top to bottom on Stratton Mountain in Vermont. The next day I re-practiced what I was taught and by the third time out it kinda clicked and hit a blue run with out falling. Truly an accomplishment for a new rider. I know I couldn't have done it without that one on one and the refinement the instructor helped me with.
If you are good in a class setting and want to meet people than there is nothing wrong with a class, but if you are like me and just want one on one do a private.
That said any lesson is better than no lesson.
