    dude, dump her now and find a girl that skis. no matter what she says she's too old to get into the sport and love it like you do. she will suck the fun out of your life if you stay with her.
    shit happens, wear a helmet.

    This is the best advice I have ever heard on a ski forum.
    I lift things up and put them down.

    In the future, if you decide to bring new skiers to a resort go straight to the ski school desk. They can tell you how to sign her up for a "Learn to Ski Program". Had you done this, she would have gotten a lift ticket, rentals and a lesson for $129.

    if you don't dump her then sign her up here on AZ so the two of you can ski Sugarloaf for cheap in the spring. discounted lodging (room for 2) free booze and food at the parties. she'll have a nice place to hang out while you rack some high speed vert in the AM and the two of you can go to the top and cruise down the greens together in the afternoon.

    who knows, if you get a couple more of your private lessons into her i'm sure you'll have her skiing the glades of bracket basin, they're pretty tame.
