Welcome

take some lessons. If you find and can do some multi-week group lessons in the morning and then practice in the afternoon.

First learn how to fall and wear a helmet....search the threads

second, learn about boots and getting them snug

and find the creepy basement vid

Do you maybe mean "snowboard" learning because you have happened upon a snowboarding forum? Regardless, the answer is lessons. Hopefully someone who knows the Poconos will see this and be able to give you a suggestion on the best areas. I see Blue Mountain mentioned quite a bit so that could be a good option.

Yes lessons.

That said, IMO Camelback has the best beginner terrain in the Poconos (read least steep greens). Go mid week if possible, this goes for any hill in the Poconos. Much easier to learn imo when there aren't people everywhere.
