Headed with the girlfriend to Jackson, NH for the weekend. I ski while she does not so we decided we would both give snowboarding a try for the first time to be on the same level. The few times she has tried skiing her greatest fear is being around others, so an uncrowded isolated beginner area is key. I've skiied Wildcat and know they have a nice separate area for beginners and I don't seem to recall ever going thru it on runouts and such. Never been to black but looking at the map it looks like it might be one of those smaller mountains that actually isn't great for first timers (limited to J-bar maybe)??? Looks like they both offer a 'first timers' package which seems to be the way to go to get the lift ticket, rental and lesson. Who knows, maybe ill make the switch for good......
