Ski the Northwest Rockies has jumped on board with nation-wide “Learn A Snow Sport Month”. They’ve compiled a list of snow sports lessons available through its five member resorts:
– Lookout Pass: Lookout’s famous free ski school is in its 70th year. This 10-week program helps 6-17-year-olds develop the skills to ski or board.
– Schweitzer Mountain Resort: Lessons with certified instructors are available for children of all ages. Lessons are divided by age group and experience to maximize learning potential.
* 49º North: Mommy/Daddy & Me ski lessons offer a lesson for beginning skiers with helpful tips for parents so that proper technique can be coached when the lesson is over.
* Silver Mountain Resort: Silver Mountain offers a full suite of lessons for beginning skiers. Visit the ski school for details.
– Mt. Spokane: In the “Never Ever” package, beginning skiers or snowboarders are invited to take a lesson with a certified instructor. Participants also receive a bonus lift ticket for another day on the mountain.
