There is no set number of lessons or amount of time you will need to learn to ski. I have heard that the older you are, the longer it may take, but this is usually because younger skiers have less fear when it comes to the art of skiing. Many novice skiers can learn to ski in less than one week. A few lessons at the “bunny hill” may be all it takes to keep a skier from falling every two minutes.
But to really learn to ski, you will have to practice, practice, practice. Learning to ski can be a lifelong process, as there are always new tricks to learn, new skills to master. Just remember to take your time and enjoy it. When you learn to ski, you will feel a sense of accomplishment and pride. Skiing is one of life's greatest workouts, and is truly great fun.
