Advanced Lessons in Northern California?
I am a raw beginner snowboarder (been twice ever, loved it but sucked at it), so I really don't know much at all yet. My wife though has been boarding for years and is happy on double-black diamonds, in the trees, and generally going blindingly fast. That said, she has done no jumping really, and is feeling like she has plateaued at her current skill level - like she doesn't get much exercise and gets bored doing the same runs over and over, because it doesn't scare her or get her heart racing anymore.
I really think that she needs lessons to push herself further and love it again, but I have NO idea what to look for. All the resorts in Tahoe claim to have lessons, all their group lessons look way less advanced than she already is, and I don't know how to judge their expensive 'private' lessons. I am looking to buy her some lessons as a present, so I can't ask her (she doesn't know anyway...). Does anyone here have any experience with 'advanced' lessons? Jumping, back-country, double-black diamond, etc? I am not swimming in cash, but my guess is it has to be private lessons, but where? What resort? How much?
My attempts at google searches for 'advanced snowboarding lessons northern california' were woeful, I got nothing I could really judge.
Still falling on my butt every time I go over 1 mile per hour
