We will be heading to Whistler the first of January for 5 nights and 4 days. We have twin 14 year old boys. We do not ski or snowboard but would like to give the boys a full day snowboard lesson for Christmas. My question is should we reserve the lesson with the lift ticket or without? If we reserve with the lift ticket is that ticket good only for the day of the lesson? Is a one day lesson going to do them any good? Trying to balance the budget and the fun factor. We do snowshoe and will be bringing those along. I also thought we would try out the sledding hill one day and possibly a night sleigh ride. Thank you for any advice you can give this newbie.
