eventually got fed up trying alone again and paid for a group lesson, but I got lucky and was the only person
Can't explain how happy I am, even though it's just the basics.
I literally have thirty dollars in my checking acct until next payday, which is two weeks away lol. So I see babysitting in my very near future. But worth it for sure
Well I'm late to the party, but I was going to say this... My fiancee has had about 5 "group" lessons over the years, and every one of them ended up being just her and the instructor.
She's been boarding about 100-120 days now, with lessons every 15 days for the first 60 or so. And she is GOOD... Like it scares me sometimes.
So group lessons :thumbsup: good attitude :thumbsup: and practice practice practice! :thumbsup:
BTW, not sure if there's a similar program in the states, but once you get the basics of boarding down, look into ski/snowboard patrolling. In Canada, if you volunteer to be a patroller, they will cover weekly lessons, lift tickets, etc. to improve your riding. You need to be at a good starting place, so give it a season or two, but it's a great way to get on the snow with good people, learn some new skills, and best of all save a LOT of money.
