My son and I went to Shawnee on 3/12/08 and we wanted to learn how to snowboard. Last time I was on any mountain was over 20years ago and I have to say I was a bit scared. We were able to get some discount coupons and ended up paying 59.00 per person for a complete snowboarding beginner package which included rentals/lessons and lift ticket. From the rentals to the lesson the Shawnee staff was excellent. Jesse our instructor was the best - he knew we had never done this before and helped us without making me feel like I was crazy in attempting this. There was about 10 people total on the learning slope which was great as I was not scared to fall and get hurt by someone coming down the slope. We had snacks at the lodge and it wasn't that bad considering I had heard that food at the mountain can be expensive. My son had a ball and picked up snowboarding well. Kudos to Jesse and all the staff we will be back next year during the off peak season to do it again!
