Experienced first ski in Korea last year.

Already booked Japan ski next month, and Easter to Ski in Innsbruck.

Easter, will be alone.

For a beginner, it's quite aggressive.

If ski alone, is it too dangerous? What to be careful?

Thank you.

Why not book a couple of group lessons on the first couple of days? You'll refine your technique, learn a bit about the area and where is safe to ski for your level, plus, hopefully you'll meet a few like minded people who might want to ski with you on other days or after the lessons.

I would strongly recommend having ski lessons for first few weeks. Without them you simply won't progress or worse still you will hit a low plateau because of bad habits previously picked up. My major regret in skiing is not having more lessons and perhaps even some casual race training. Yes I can ski okay but technique or lack of eventually shows up.
