This is the perfect time of year to learn to ski or snowboard. For you. Perhaps a friend. That's because January is Learn To Ski Or Snowboard Month across the country and you'll find good package deals at ski areas near wherever you live.
Detailed information is available online, but the basic idea is that most every ski area has a special deal or package that generally includes lift tickets, rental equipment, and lessons from professional, well-trained instructors. The idea is to get you loving skiing or snowboarding as quickly as possible. Don't miss the opportunity, as you'll have the rest of the winter to improve and enjoy it even more.
More than 153,000 children and adults took part in Learn To Ski and Snowboard Month last January and that number will grow this year. There were more than 300 venues in 34 states in 2013 alone.
