Bring a Friend is a way for friends and family members to share their love of skiing and snowboarding or discover it for the first time. If you already are a skier or a snowboarder, bring a friend or family member to a local resort and help him/her sign up for lessons from a professional instructor.

The best way for newcomers to learn is by taking lessons from a pro.
