Whistler blackcomb lessons & lift ticketshi there,
i'm planning to be in Whistler/blackcomb to learn skiing or snowboarding for 3 days only. i heard that lessons are exhausting and i probably can't last a full day lesson continuously for 3 days. am thinking to do half day lessons each day and either practise by myself or just take the ski lift for the views the other half of the day.
but the lift tickets that come with the lesson has a fine line disclaimer that says "no usage of lifts without the instructor" are they really strict in enforcing this? if i book 3 days worth of 1/2 days lessons and still have to pay for a 3-day lift ticket, thats like alot of money. anyway to get around this?
much appreciate any ideas & replies.

1Unless the instructor forces you to the bottom of the mountain at lessons end you won’t have to show your ticket. They only check at the base areas not at the higher lifts on the mountains. You should call the toll free number (from website) and ask the question, maybe you'll want to change the type of pass you have. It’s very expensive to buy tickets at the mountain itself, $98/day this year.
Since you are spending all this money to come and ski, why don't you hit the gym for a month, just do a little aerobic exercise, maybe a few leg presses it will make your ski experience sooooo much better!
