Your vacation planning community

I am looking for some advice on lessons.  We usually make it out to Steamboat 2-3 times a year.  I am an average skier (comfortable on blues, easy blacks, but dear Lord....no moguls...it's UGLY!!!)  My 6 year old and I are coming out for Spring Break at the end of March.  Normally  I would just ski with my husband but as he is not coming I was thinking about taking advantage of having 2 days of skiing to myself (the rest of the time I will be skiing with my little dare devil).  I  don't want to take a private lesson but was thinking a group lesson one day would help.  Thoughts???  Is it worth it???  Would I learn anything or just end up skiing the same things I would have skied by myself?  I have not done a group lesson in 15 years.  I would feel too guilty spending the money for a private when my husband is home working :) Thanks and I can't wait to get out there again.

I always take a lesson when i go out there.  I am slightly average and I always learn something new.  But I only ski once a year too.  My skiing days are pretty much over now due to knee surgery but if I could ski I would be in a lesson...Have good time with your dare devil..I had one of those too years ago!!  Now he is a great skier and boarder!!!!  

Speaking as someone who has worked in the ski industry for several years now, I was amazed a few years ago when I took some brush up lessons.  It's so easy to get into our groove, that it's good to have a refresher now and then to help correct technique and maybe even show you some new things, since you said you haven't done a group lesson in 15 years.  Skis have changed tremendously in that time, and so have how you ride them.  Hope you have a wonderful vacation!

Thanks for the input.  I actually booked my lesson last night.  I am very excited to hopefully improve on a few things.  As we are lucky enought to get out to Steamboat 3 times this year, I am hoping that I see some improvment. Here's to powders days!!!

Always take a lesson, can never hurt!

Reminds me, must really look at booking some lessons this year... We are average skiers, but I think that there are always more things to learn and ways to make things easier for ourselves.
