Bring a Friend



Most newcomers are introduced to skiing and snowboarding through a friend or family member. "Bring a Friend" is a way for those friends and family members to share their love of skiing and snowboarding with others by helping them sign up for lessons from professional instructors. No one wants to ski or snowboard alone. The best way to learn or improve is to take lessons from a pro. 

Ski and snowboard venues offer beginner learning programs all winter long. Some are called "Bring a Friend".  January is Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month when many venues provide their best deals. Offers vary so it is best to use our Find Resorts locator for details. Many retails provide valuable information for beginners. Shops are listed in our Find Gear menu tab.
