Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month
About Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month
January is Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month. Ski areas across the country are offering deals designed to get new skiers and snowboarders on the slopes and to help veterans improve their technique during the winter ski season. Downhill and crosscountry ski resorts within 100 miles of Reno are offering discounts on lessons, lift tickets, rentals and more, giving you incentives to try a new sport.
If you aren't so sure about snowboarding and skiing, many of these same resorts offer snowshoeing areas and snow play parks for tubing and sledding.
