LuckyRVA I learned to ride at Elk Mountain, PA. They have one really wide open green run that's good for beginners. Plus, there's hardly anyone ever there. Even during the holidays.

stylez23 I started learning at Mountain Creek in Vernon, NJ

Never took lessons but had friends teach me on the bunny slope. Best time to learn is on a weekday otherwise you'll have to deal with the crowds.

Hi all,

I never snowboarded or skied before in my life but I want to start snowboarding.
Does anybody know the best place for a true beginner in or around NJ to get lessons.

Thanks
