When choosing a program, please keep these levels in mind:

red This is my first time on the mountain. I have never skied or snowboarded before.
orange I have skied or snowboarded before, and I am able to slide in a straight line but am not able to turn yet.
yellow I am turning and stopping but still need practice. I need to work on my confidence and control.
green I am riding the chairlift and am comfortable on green terrain. I can turn and stop with confidence.
blue I can ski or snowboard on blue terrain, using a variety of turn sizes. I am able to control my speed and stop when I need to.
black I am already skiing or snowboarding confidently on black terrain and am looking to explore bumps, steeps, glades and parks.

So pick a learning program that's right for you and come to Okemo. You'll have a great time. What's more, when you leave you'll be a better skier or snowboarder. And that's something worth remembering!
