You might be better off taking lessons on your first days out west instead of trying to do them in advance. The snow and skiing conditions are very different out west. And anyway if your friends on the trip have been skiing for years, you'll be nowhere close to their level and on green (maybe some blue) slopes for the trip, so you'll be skiing alone anyway so being in lessons won't be keeping you from your friends.

Agree with this - just do lessons there. I grew up skiing out west and was terrified and ended up injured when I did it east. ultimately gave up / wished I’d taken lessons while my friends went out vs trying to ski with them.

Honestly skiing is pretty easy assuming you aren’t trying to do crazy tricks. And if you can already snowboard you will do fine.

Hunter and Windham are good mountains close(ish) to the city. I think getting in couple practice days before the trip makes sense and could help your ability to get to the top of the mountain out west and really enjoy the trip. But have a blast either way. There’s nothing like skiing the West/Rockies.

You can board it that is safer for you…

Skiing is easier to pick up for most anyways
