Good luck with it all antiflame. I remember my first day (and it was painful but fun.) I was so scared even of the steepness of the beginners run and couldn't conceive it possible that one day I would be one of those guys tearing down the mountain. 8 years later every day out is still a learning experience but so much fun is being had tearing it up.
One thing I remember from learning is that after a few days I went to a different mountain that had a very wide and gentle beginners slope with good snow cover. (It also had a slightly difficult aspect at the top to get to it which helped with the learning also). The big wide slope allowed me plenty of time to do big wide turns and set up for the next turn without pressure. I improved dramatically just by having this space which gave me confidence to then try blue runs.

Enjoy the ride
