New Rider from NJ
 
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

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.

I started at Campgaw in Mahwah. Tiny place, they have a conveyor belt for beginners, $36 on weekends
Ski Campgaw

A bit further, Belleayre is nice:
Belleayre Mountain - New York's Winter Snow Park

Where in NJ are you?

The Poconos have plenty of places to learn at. I really learned at Shawnee and at the time Vernon Valley (now Mountain Creek). Biggest advice would be try to go on a weekday.. these mountains all get packed on the weekend.

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.
