So I am starting group lessons in February. I have never been "on my toe edge" cause I have never been in snow deeper than 1/2 an inch or so. I moved to a snow state (idaho)this summer so I am going to learn. Is there anything I can do to be more ready for the lesson so as not to annoy the instructor?

TBH, until I came to Idaho for a job interview, I never saw snow that was powdery or that you could actually sink into.

Just putting my $0.02 in here for spots at Colorado to learn.

Loveland is good, definitely less crowded and there is a separate area for beginners to learn at. Not much in the way of more advanced riders zipping by those who are learning.

I personally think Copper mountain is hands down the best place to learn in the front range. An entire side of the mountain is all beginner (Greens)runs with maybe a blue thrown in here or there. The terrain naturally divides this side of the mountain away from the more advanced terrain. You just do not have intermediate or advanced skiers/riders going through there unless they are there to meet a buddy who is learning. It is a lot of terrain too. Probably 500 acres or so. The size of a midwest ski area for the most part. It also has it's own base area with food/beer/etc...
