Any advice for first time snow skiers?
We are leaving Friday to take the family to Lake Tahoe. DH and I went there a few years ago and thought it was absolutely beautiful! Although we took the lift up to Heavenly and had a blast, we didn't attempt to ski. We are basically southern flatlanders (although I lived in more mountainous and colder areas as a kid), and have never snow skiied. We just bought some basic ski apparel to bring along as we understand that the prices near the slopes are muuuuuch higher (always a deal hunter). We will rent any ski equipment we might need, and expect to make total fools of our uncoordinated selves on the bunny slopes, but since snow here in South Louisiana is spelled s-n-e-a-u-x and appears about as frequently as hair on a frog, this will be quite an adventure for us. Any suggestions?
