I guess everyone has a different way of learning. So it would king of depend on who is learning to ski. I personally think everyone should start with a step by step lesson. There are basic aspects that you have to learn before you learn to actually get on snow. Like how to stand, when to bend all the necessities you need to survive when skiing.
