Approximately 6,000 children and adults took a beginner lesson last January when resorts throughout the U.S. hosted the World's Largest Lesson attempt. We had the numbers to set a new record but we didn't quite have the proof. So, we are going to try again on Friday, January 6, 2017. This time, we will be joined by our neighbors to the North, many Canadian resorts, via the Canadian Ski Council.
The programs on this page are for Learn to Ski and Snowboard and/or Bring a Friend. For general information, visit our Find Resorts section. Use our Find Gear menu tab for information on snow sports specialty retail shops. We also post updates on our Facebook Page and our Twitter feed @learn2skiboard. And, we have lots of videos posted on You Tube.
