Marie; I would suggest focus practice being in complete control of speed and your transitions on the bunny hill and easy greens until its second nature. You should be able to ride between others that are learning on the bunny hill and easy greens with ease (they are like a moving obstacle course). Learn to speed check before you do blues. Don't worry about switch, tail spins and tricks until you have the basics down. Your confidence riding will increase dramatically if you have control. This was my personal experience.

BigAL Currently saving evey penny to get to the Pro Ride 12 wk camp. After my supervisor told me what I needed to do to even have a chance of getting to her level in snowboarding (she used to compete in the US open).

Currently doing these as part of my exercise program - but single leg, not both legs at the same time. Greatly improves leg strength as well as works the stabilizer muscles.
Ass to grass depth btw.

Don't know how old you are... but you can do your knees a favour and don't do actual squats but rather squat down and hold the position as long as you can. Same effect, less wear n tear to the knees.

I can't really do squats anyway being Mr Inflexible lol. Yeah I tend to just hold them as if I'm on my board ^^
