a flattish surface before you take on the slopes. You won't get
all of it down pat in the first run - you'll slowly apply and perfect
them as you continue - but being aware of them will help you gain
confidence. Skiing is a confidence sport - the more confidence you
have in your own ability, the better you'll be able to cope with
what the slopes throw at you!

in small groups help you learn from other's mistakes, not to mention
building camaraderie with other newbies like yourself.
