Lessons, a new addition to Colorado Ski Country's Passport program which provides three days of free skiing at each participating CSCUSA member resort, will be given throughout January as part of Learn to Ski and Snowboard month.
Colorado fifth graders now not only can ski for free, but they can take a free lesson, too. Colorado Ski Country announced the new addition to the existing 5th Grade Passport program, which provides the state's fifth graders with three free days of skiing at participating resort, yesterday during its 47th annual meeting. The lessons will be given throughout January as part of Learn to Ski and Snowboard month.
This season has been great so far: You were one of the first people on the snow when the resorts opened, you learned some sweet new tricks, maybe you even conquered those double black bowls you've been working up to. But now that the season's in full swing, it's time to kick your skiing up a notch, and the Vail Snowsports School 2010 SKImmersion program is the perfect place to do it.
You'd take a trip to the mountain over flowers and dinner any day of the week, Hallmark holidays included. So this Friday, why not grab your significant other and head to Crested Butte for a weekend of on-slope romance and skill building?
The International Skiing Heritage Association recognizes a member of the SKI Magazine family
Stu Campbell, SKI’s longtime Instruction Director and one of the preeminent ski teachers of his era, left an indelible mark on American skiing and just might have influenced the sport as much as any individual in the past 50 years. In recognition of his contributions and in honor of the man himself, the International Skiing History Association has posthumously awarded Campbell the 2009 Skiing History Pioneer Award.
Even the best of us get a little rusty after a summer spent lounging by the pool. But it's nothing a week at Killington's Tune Up camp can't fix. The five-hour-per-day, on-snow clinics are designed for blue zone and above skiers. The resort’s professional coaching staff will guide you through arcing turns, gate training, ski-to-snow contact and a variety of other skills.
Let us be abundantly clear: No one is too good or too old for ski school. A lesson with a professional ski instructor will make you a better skier. But we get it: When you only get a few precious weeks or days on snow, you're loath to spend them in a restrictive class setting, following a guy in a uniform down trails of his choosing, not yours.
