been at it 9 years and still like to take a lesson when i can afford it. sometimes if you take an intermediate/advanced group lesson during the week you'll get a private lesson for half price. ^_^

this brings back painful memories.... i remember one time i fell on my ass so hard, i literally thought my ass exploded. i was afraid to get off the snow for fear it would be red.

Dont ne too hard on urself. Everyone starts out like dat. When you think about it, you only have a few days to practice each year. So thats not much time at all!!

Other sports people practice day in, day out. Trust me all the pain is worth it wen u finally get it!!

I broke 2 ribs when I first started out, and I still went out the next day!! Luv it too much to let 2 broken ribs stop me.

hey man, personally i wouldnt waste the money on the lesson. All my friend told me, is to bend my knee's.. dont be like a stick. and just use your back foot to turn. pretend like your front one isn't even there. When going healside, dont lean forward or youll catch, and while toe side lean forward so your edge doesent catch.. it worked for me a but. 2 times to the mountain, and i was going down w.o falling.4th time i was hitting box's.

good luck

espo
