Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month..choosing equipment!

by Mountain Mama January 6 2012 3 Comments


Since January is Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month nationwide, I've decided to take it down to the basics and get some advice from the experts on getting started.  Great advice from equipment to lessons to deals in Utah...follow my stories over the next 4 weeks!

I started at Ski' N See

In case you're wondering about how the snow is...well, sun and warm weather = good conditions to teach kids to ski.

KSL sponsored a Utah ski day where radio updates ran all day and folks got a chance to come up and win tickets at Brighton.  There are tons of great deals all during January for people wanting to take advantage of learning to ski or snowboard.  Also, mark your calendar for Brighton's big 75th birthday bash with deals and fireworks!!

And if you want some great deals on rentals, check out these coupons from Ski' n See for January!

Next up...lessons for never-ever skiers, how this challenges and excites the instructors.  And one final note...Brennan (my 4 year old) wants to teach me to snowboard.  That's worth checking back!
