Training & Qualifications
You do not need formal skiing qualifications unless you want to instruct or guide. Expert training and instruction is highly recommended for all levels.
Snow sports can be expensive for something which you do maybe once or twice a year. Most ski and snowboard schools offer equipment for hire, with different skis available for more speed and control as you progress.
Your own boots and warm winter clothing are sound investments.
