January is National Learn to Ski / Snowboard Month + Mountain High Ski Lift Ticket Giveaway!

Most of us in Southern California are so snow-deprived, we rush out the minute we learn of fresh powder. I was wondering how many people called in sick this week and were skiing/snowboarding instead? 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 my kids have a blast learning how to snowboard. January is “Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month” and Mountain High will be offering special lesson packages for visitors eager to learn how to ski and snowboard. “Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month” 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. The initiative is supported by the ski and snowboard industry including national, regional and state associations, resorts, industry trade media, retailers and more.

“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.

“Classes here at Mountain High are definitely the best way to learn how to shred the mountain,” said McColly. “We want to help make sure that we continue to grow participation locally and beyond in our favorite sport – skiing and snowboarding.”

Two-for-One Special!

Beginning January 8, guests can purchase a midweek half-day first timer package complete with lesson, rentals and a lower-mountain lift ticket for just $105 and receive a second first timer package free for a friend to be used on the same day. This two-for-one special is for adults ages 13+ and available only online!

1, 2, 3 Free

To help support continued learning, Mountain High guests can buy a “1, 2, 3, Free” package anytime during the current season. This three-visit beginner package includes three one-hour and 45-minute lessons, rental equipment and lower mountain lift tickets for $179. Once guests complete all three lessons, they receive a free eight-hour lift ticket (valued at $79) to enjoy. The package can be used any non-holidays (holidays include the following 2018 dates: January 1-7, January 13-15 and February 17-19).
