First thing to do is find an instructor to help you get the right skis and teach the basics. It's hard to just stand up till you learn a few things first. Make sure you wear well padded ski pants because you're going to be on your butt a lot till you get it down. Like everything else, practice makes perfect. If they have small classes with an instructor wherever you go, make sure you join right up. Have fun! I loved it and snowboarding too! :)
Hiya! First dress warm, lol! Next, prepare yourself for some unintentional relocations to the ground... And you'll be fine! Oh... Bunny slope first! Have fun!
