January is National Learn to Ski / Snowboard Month + Mt High Specials

Most of us in Southern California are so snow-deprived, we rush out the minute we learn there’s fresh powder. There is rain + snow in the forecast. I wonder how many people will call in sick so they can visit a ski resort. Lucky for us, Mountain High Ski Resort is about a 90-minute drive away from Orange County and Los Angeles making it great for day trips! We always try to get there annually, and we always take lessons at the beginning of the season as a refresher course. My kids always have a blast! Mountain High is where Southern Californians learn to ski and snowboard. Even international snowboarding superstars such as Chloe Kim and Maddie Mastro got their starts on the slopes at Mountain High.

January is “Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month”, and it is a designated time each year when venues across the U.S. offer special programs for those who want to learn how to ski or snowboard. Mountain High is participating and will be offering special lesson packages. The initiative is supported by the ski and snowboard industry including national, regional and state associations, resorts, industry trade media, retailers and more. 

ONLINE SPECIAL!

Beginning January 7, Mountain High guests receive two midweek, non-holiday, Half-Day “First Timer” packages complete with lessons, rentals, and lower-mountain lift tickets for the price of one – just $105. This special is for adults ages 13-and-up and available online only (cannot be purchased at the resort). Both packages must be used the same day. Tickets cannot be shipped. Available midweek, non-holiday January 7th – 31st, 2019.  Starts January 7th. Not valid January 21st. Lessons take place at 9:45am and 12:45pm. Recommended: Arrive up to 2 hours prior to your lesson time. More info can be found here: shop.mthigh.com/january-lesson-special

“The new year is the perfect time to learn for anyone who has wanted to put on a pair of skis or hop onto a snowboard,” said John McColly, Mountain High chief marketing officer. “Skiing and snowboarding are both fun, healthy ways to enjoy the great outdoors and take in the beautiful Southern California weather.”

Tips for Beginners

During the first lesson, participants will learn how to properly use their equipment, balance and execute basic maneuvers such as sliding and stopping. It is important to remember that learning to ski or snowboard is not a one-time event, but rather a lifestyle. Mountain High’s certified instructors teach proven techniques with the latest equipment and the resort’s lesson programs have some of the highest success rates in the country with lessons available for all skill levels. Be sure to keep practicing because studies show that most people require three lessons to really get the hang of skiing and snowboarding.
