    Yeah I'll buy her lessons at an easier local mountain next time while I just have fun rippin the slopes

    Maybe after her lessons she'll be confident enough to take a run with me? Who knows

    Agreed, put out and buy her some lessons......but not in "advanced" levels. Let her enjoy improving her skills....

    Send her out my way. I will display the patience and understanding that she clearly needs. Your best bet would be to stay home. She will thank me after-trust me....

    At Sunday River, ticket, lesson and rentals are $85.00. You won't HAVE to hug and kiss her as much afterwards, you'll just get to.

    Really, skiing and teaching skiing are two entirely different things. Go give her a hug, and promise her real lessons with a trained instructor. And give her a kiss, too. Your heart is in the right place, and so is hers.
    Plus the added benefit with most instructors is that since they're doing this (teaching) all the time, chances are they have the ability to quickly be able to change how they're explaining what their trying to teach to meet the comprehension/needs of different people (since I think its safe to say that not everyone gets the message that some people are trying to convey ) so the instructor is focusing on how to improve the skills of that person in the best way for them, not just trying to explain it in a way that makes sense to them(the instructor)

    I haven't been here all that long but this is by far my favorite thread so far...LMAO reading all the different opinions and agree with many...Tuna, love the spirit and wanting to get the love of your life skiing...I really do...and I know that your heart was in the right place...I just think it's hilarious that she takes the sled down to finish the day...my wife would have killed me! To each his own...

    I might convince her to come on here and make a few posts ... sounds good to me!

    Plus I've never been to Sugarloaf and it sounds epic as f*ck so if theres some way I can slay the trails and the back bowls and all that while she gets some professional lessons....

    that would be what's up!
