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.
Thanks Argo, I was hoping to hear from you.

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.

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?
