Vail Lessons. Differences between lionshead and golden peak?
going to be snowboarding in vail next weekend (flying in Friday, snowboarding sat, sun, Monday, Tuesday).
I'm an OK blue rider once I get my bearings. For reference. I've done most of the blues at beaver creek, mainly solo. And have rode from the peak to base, (with a break at the gondola) at the end of the day. Which include the short, black, right below the gondola.
I've also done most of the blues at steamboat.
The question I have for lessons is the following:
~~Want to book a lesson but they have a choice of locations - Golden Peak & Lionshead. I never rode at vail so I have no idea as to what the difference is (I have walked the village
Is one easier?
I always send my family to lionshead, golden peak caters to a higher end crowd and has that kinda attitude and feel. golden peak is at the base for lessons, lionshead is at the peak, for beginners it's nice for a true mtn feel.
The instructors overall are slightly more skilled on the lionshead side for advanced snowboard lessons, advance ski would be gp.
If you can swing it, get a 3 day lesson. Price wise it's like getting an extra free day of instruction and you will likely be alone.
I'm planning on doing the 3 day package + lift, but might not take the 3rd day. I still come out ahead. I have friends family I want to ride with, so I might have to skip the 3rd lesson.
