    I heard Dubai has some nice man-made indoor slopes. I can't imagine where they got the kind of money to create that, but......might be worth a try.

    Damn! You saw through my plans...

    All the ski resorts out here have little bunny hills, but from what I've been told, our bunny hills are bigger and steeper than the harder runs on some hills out east. It's easy, though. It's where I learned. Besides, how could you not want to ski this?

    head up to Michigan and try out Boyne Highlands/Mountain not bad skiiing and atmosphere. Otherwise you can't beat Colorado more options for learning and better instructors. I always liked Arapahoe Basin for price and smaller feel.

    It's in Southern Indiana, and has decent beginner to intermediate slopes.
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    Great ski area, lots of fun in town too. Not the biggest hill, but nice variety and a lot of easier slopes and some stuff you look at and go no way.

    Ski? Psh come on, man up and board. You could go to Sunrise. Pretty cheap seeing that is in AZ so not great at all, really small and boring trails. But hey get what you can, amirite?

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    look for package deals- ski & stay with a few lessons. Remember mountains are big. Michigan might be a good place to start...
