Learn to Ski & Snowboard Month at Schweitzer

January is the best time to take advantage of lesson packages.

Sandpoint, ID (January 4, 2018) – During the month of January, Schweitzer offers first time skiers and riders packages and incentives to encourage them to take up snow sports as part of the national “Learn to Ski & Snowboard Month (LSSM)” program. “LSSM is great for those who are curious about learning something new. There are several affordable lesson packages to get them out on the mountain,” says Nikol Hampton, Schweitzer’s Snowsports School Director. “For example, someone who has never skied or snowboarded before can get a lesson, lift ticket, and rentals for only $40. It’s a great way to experience skiing and snowboarding without having to make a huge financial commitment right off the bat.”

“We live in such a natural wonderland and one that continues to inspire us to get outside even in the coldest months,” says Schweitzer Marketing Manager, Dig Chrismer. “Living in this part of the country motivates us to be active all summer long and that shouldn’t stop as we head into winter. As we say in the ski industry – ‘humans weren’t meant to hibernate.’ So get out on the snow and learn to embrace all that winter has to offer. ”

“This is also a great opportunity to find shared experiences for the whole family,” Chrismer continues. “It’s never too late for parents to try something new, right alongside their children. When everyone is learning something new, it’s a great way to break down those walls and enjoy the same winter activities as a family.”

Schweitzer also offers a “Ski-4-FREE in 3” lesson program consisting of 3 days of lessons, rentals and lift tickets for just $165. Upon completion of the program, participants receive a Grad Pass that gives them free skiing or snowboarding from mid-March until Schweitzer’s season ends. “Just start your lessons in January and by March, you’ll be ready to explore more of this amazing mountain,” says Hampton.
