Snowboard Lessons for beginner near Zurich? (weekends)

Dear all EFers,

The snow season is starting and this year (due to peer pression ) I will be starting with snowboard.

I'm an intermediate skier, but I decided to give a try to snowboard, since I'll have a snow week in end of January with 9 snowboarders and I don't want to be the only skier

So, I'm looking to have some lessons during end November/December to start with it. They need to be on the weekend.
I would like to know some places/schools/teachers "near" Zurich where I could have some initial lessons.
Would you recommend some group lessons our individual lessons to start with?

If anybody wants to join me, would be more than welcome. I usualy go to the slopes by car with my girlfriend (who is starting skiing), so I can take 2 other persons with me.

Thank you in advance for your precious advices

Any open resort should have a ski school where you can either book a lesson or just turn up for one on the day......group or private. Check on the resort websites......nothing too close to zurich open yet however......maybe Engelberg could be the closest but dont know if the schools would be open in November

Contact Board Local - I know some of the instructors live in resort, so I'm sure they'd be able to arrange a lesson on request, even if they're not working full-time yet.

I'm looking for snowboarders
I started 10 years ago, so I can teach you something after your lessons.

The best and fastest way to learn is to take private lessons. They are more expensive but well worth it. You wont have to wait untill the others in the group are ready to progress. The pace of the lesson is totaly up to you. If you want to get good fast and be ready for your trip in January this will probably be the best option. Being a skier first definately helps. Lenzerheide ( 1.5hrs from Zurich ) is hoping to open at the end of November, snow depending.

Pray for snow

I'll try to book some lessons as soon as there are lifts open nearby.
