You really are best off buying something used for $200 or so as a first board. After the first season resell it for nearly what you bought it for, and then buy yourself something fancier.

I know too many people that bought a Lib Tech T.Rice Pro as their first board. Without ever really being on the snow...
Ya i looked up prices, its about 50 dollars more than just the lift ticket for lesson, lift ticket and rental. lift tickets 45, 90 for everything. Thats a group lesson though, not sure if i want to take that route though.
