What these guys said.

I also just learned to ride and despite all the washouts and faceplants, I consider it a success. I also had group lessons, but was lucky enough to be in a group of 3 with both the other people being good friends of mine. I went from being certain that going down a green would be my death to (almost) comfortably linking turns on greens and even going down a blue without dying. On the second and third days, I felt like I had forgotten everything and my first couple of runs were strings of failures. Thus I learned the importance of warmups and on practicing moves on flatland whenever I feel the need to.

Even though you may feel like you're not progressing or not getting far enough, you ARE progressing. Just get out there, practice and have fun. You'll get it (and I hope I will too someday)
