This year’s World Record event is expected to be even bigger and better than last year. “Last year’s event was an amazing experience for ski areas from coast to coast, and Alaska,” said Mary Jo Tarallo, direct of the U.S.- based Learn to Ski and Snowboard/Bring a Friend initiative. “This year we think it will be even more exciting with the inclusion of our friends from Canada.” Blue Mountain Resort is certainly looking forward to participating in the event and is even more excited for a month full of learning, outdoor fun, and memories!
