For the novice, the notion of strapping a board or a pair of skis to your feet may seem like one of the most foolish things you can do on a snow-covered mountain—a sensation that’s only intensified if you have daredevil skiers cutting you off or (worse) if you mistakenly end up on a double-black slope. The resorts profiled here—our ten favorites, plus others good for beginners—specialize at lessening the overall learning curve with solid ski and ‘board schooling, segregated beginners-only slopes, and well-groomed conditions that’ll let you snowplow all you want until you gather your confidence and leave the green slopes behind for bluer pistes.
