Thanks all for the input, as someone said knowing the decent runs/eateries is as prob as important as whether you ski/board. If guiding I'm unlikely to opt for runs with flat parts in if at all possible...
Skiiing - how long to learn?!
Yup, this is the kind of chat I'd want from a resort guide:
"If we get a dump then ignore the main lift and come straight here for freshies... don't go here late on. It gets icy... there is a nice off-piste run here between the trees... the cheesecake in there is frickin awesome."
pomona - yeah Helipark is Mt Potts. MC will look after you and its SO worth the extra $$ for the terrain they have in there and also the chance to go near Mt Sunday which was the villagey thing on the top of the hill in the LoTR

colwyn58 - back to the original question.
I confess I haven't read all the posts, just wanted to add my two pennies worth to the colwyn58 post topic.
Go private lessons if you can afford (maybe you and a couple of friends - if you are all starting to learn). Less waiting, more skiing and the instructors just seem to give just that little bit more.
We've seen people that have had 2 weeks lessons (and a bit of dry skiing practice in England) that are a worse standard than three days private lessons.
