What is Learn to Ski or Snowboard Month?

Glad you asked! Learn to Ski or Snowboard Month encourages newcomers (or those who took a break from skiing, it’s ok – we forgive you) to get to the mountain and take a lesson! It’s a way better experience getting a lesson from a professional than friends or a spouse.

Why do I Need to Take a Lesson? Why Can’t My Friends/Spouse Teach Me?

Let’s start off with this — it’s almost never a good idea to take a lesson from your friends or spouse. Especially a spouse! Trust me. A trained instructor will have the experience and patience to work on fundamentals and go through the basics. It’s their job and they are good at it! You should be aiming to create a good base of skills so you can safely enjoy the sport that we all love. Plus you might meet some new friends while learning. If you want private instruction, there are options for one-on-one instruction at most resorts.

Liftopia Experiences is a Great Place to Start
