Hi Everybody

I'm out to Steamboat for the first time on the 30th January for a couple of weeks. Can anybody recommend an good ski school or instructor for a full days or a couple of half days private snowboarding lessons please?

Abit of background for you if it helps. I've skied for the last 19 years but have started to learn snowboarding to enable me to have the choice of how I want to ride the mountain. I've had a few days on a board and can now link my turns but I feel I need some tips and pointers and some exercises to practice to give me more confidence and control. Any recommendations are much appreciated.

Cheers for now

Will

Abi Slingsby taught me to ride, she is fantastic! I was a skier wanting to switch. I had lessons at other resorts before we started skiing Steamboat full season, nothing compared to her. Its fair to say the Snowboard school has a ton of talented instructors, she gets pretty booked up though so get on it early!
I second, third and fourth the vote on Abi SLingsby. She taught my then 5 year old how to ride before he switched to skiing full time. And my all-mountain brother-in-law rides 10 consecutive days with her every year. Fortunately for you our/his departure is Jan. 24 so she'll be free by your trip. A bonus is that Abi skis also so she might better understand how you are being challenged by switching over.
Hi again

Thats for the recommendations of Abi, it's much appreciated. How do I get in touch with her regards a lesson or two?

Cheers for now
