About Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month
Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month is a national initiative celebrated in January that encourages kids and adults to learn how to ski and/or snowboard, or improve their skills by taking lessons from a professional instructor. Ski areas and resorts throughout the U.S. offer free and reasonably priced lesson programs during January in an effort to get more people on the snow. The LSSM website offers a comprehensive listing of participating resorts and retailers. It also includes information on preparing for a quality snow experience and staying involved.
We want to get more American families on the slopes, enjoying a healthy winter lifestyle. We love to ski and snowboard, and we want to share our love of the sport and encourage others. By working collectively, the snow sports industry has created a resource that makes it easy for consumers to find nearby learning programs and practical information to help them become advocates.
Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month was started in 2009 when resort associations in just a couple of states decided to launch their state-wide programs. Now, more than 300 ski areas, resorts and Nordic Centers offered special learning programs during January. In some states, learning programs for cross country skiing and snowshoeing are also offered as part of the initiative.
