Jason I never had any problems at Vernon or Granite. I no longer ride there because it's small but felt like it was a good place to learn.

ekb18c I wouldn't go to Mountain Creek even if they paid me. The mountain is very small, the riders are all punks and wanna be thugs. Avoid mountain creek at all cost..

Jason Can you ride midweek? If you can Mountain Creek is ~45 minutes from the city and they have a good deal for beginners. It's small but you don't really need a bigger place if you're learning.

The 3X GUARANTEED EXPERIENCE (Age 8+)

This is a deal you can't afford not to take advantage of. For just $30 more than the 1X package you can come back and do it again 2 more times!!! This package includes: 3 Limited Access Lift Tickets, 3 Anytime Ski or Snowboard Rentals and 3 1 hour Group Lessons, We GUARANTEE you will be turning on your own on our "green" terrain after 3 lessons, or your lessons are FREE until you can!*

Ski or snowboard $129.99

*After redemption of the third lift, lesson & rental package, beginner lesson clinics only will be available at no charge until you can make turns down the Sugar trail. Rental equipment and lift tickets are not included for these additional lessons.
Edit: I would not go there on a weekend.

P.S:Sorry for my english,i'm brazilian and i'm still studying it.
Thanks.
I'd say Camelback it's my home mountain, really nice place but's sometimes it gets crowded. Hunter is a decent place too but it's really icy.

Ya. When you decide where you want to go I'd start a new thread looking for ideas on how to proceed. You'll probably get some recommendations. You can either rent at the mountain or there are tons of private places around them that may give you a better multi day deal. Either way you rent by the day. And if you do a half day lesson it will come with a full day pass.

The mountain may actually be a little bit cheaper as they usually have a first timer package that is lift/lesson/rentals. But you'll have to return them at the end of the day and redo it the next. Whereas if you rent from an off mountain place you can just keep them for the number of days.

ekb18c Most likely yes, as rentals are per day.

Jota I know it, but when I buy a half-day lesson(that includes the equipment in the price) can I use the equipment in the rest of the day?

Sorry for too many questions it's my first trip to a place like this.
Rentals are like 40-60 per day. Lessons are like 70-100 per day. (3-4 hr lessons)

You have the time to head up north so it's not a bad choice. I would consider Stratton and Okemo as well. They are smidge closer and more mountain than you'll need. I would think you'll want to rent and around the mountain there are tons of places to get some decent gear without getting the standard mountain rental stuff. If possible keep the days open and play it by ear, if you go pre xmas midweek you'll have no problems anywhere with accommodations.
