I'll second that Loveland new skier/boarder deal- plus there's a good amount of terrain to learn on at that area, plus the newbie area down valley that'll give you a safe place to learn till you're ready for the rest of the mountain. Maybe a little farther from the Springs than Monarch, and you had better get up early (like 5:30) to avoid traffic, but there is no substitute for getting some instruction. You'll be able to ease into the sport, have a better time (and get better value for your money) and you can spread the cost of the pass over a few weeks instead of a chunk at once.

I just wanted to update the community on my first snowboard lesson...

I took one hard one to the tailbone on the bunny slope that made me consciously NOT fall on my butt the rest of the day, but onto elbows and wrists instead (I wore wrist protectors, and of course a helmet). By the end of the day, I could pretty decently control my descent on the bunny slope, so that's something.

I went to Copper on Thanksgiving and had Reyna (not sure spelling, she's Bulgarian), and she was an adequate and attentive instructor.

Kinda sucked to see 5-year-olds skiing seemingly in control of themselves, but I shall not compare myself to others...

Next lesson next week.
