For beginner footers, any school will work. Lane used to teach with Scarpa back in the day, before splitting off to do his own gig.
I'm a fan of Keith St. Onge and David Small at WBC. They have a great crew, they ski for you, and they are both the top two 3-event footers in the world right now.
Certainly, you don't need the best in the world to teach you. Any school will work.
Are there no schools in Australia? Brett Wing was quite the skier back in the day.
