Difficulty of Skiing for Newbies

I have skied at Ski Apache for two years and never really moved up to difficult blues like Capiton. Can you tell me if whitefeather will have steep drops that would be considered a blue elsewhere?

Do you think that a yellowbird lesson is the best way to go, even though I have skied before, on steep runs, just end of snowplowing if I get too nervous.

Our family has been skiing Taos for 28 years, (just back last week) and I would definitely recommend their ski school. I personally do not ski any longer (bad knee) and cannot remember the specifics of whitefeather, so I cannot answer that question. You should call the ski school and explain your abilities and ask what they recommend. We have found them to always be very helpful.
