Try Something NEW This Winter: Learn to Ski or Snowboard!

As the winter Olympics are approaching, and we gather around the television to watch professional skiers and snowboarders take on the mountain, have you ever wondered “Well, I would like to try that! But I’m too old, and I don’t have experience, and where would I begin?” This is the month to do it! From Alaska to North Carolina (and states in between), January is national Learn to Ski & Snowboard Month.

With over 300 ski resorts in the U.S., and many within a quick distance of a major city, there is great access to get on the mountain. Today, learning to ski or snowboard has never been easier! Most ski resorts offer a Learn To Package that includes lift tickets, rentals, and lessons with a professional instructor. To celebrate this month, some resorts will also offer a Buy One Get One Free or Bring A Friend. Visit for more information.


Not only are skiing and snowboarding a lot of fun, but these are healthy, outdoor winter activities that will burn lots of calories, lift the spirits, and keep you fit this winter. Even if you are a beginner, you can burn up to 450 calories an hour! Skiing and snowboarding work numerous muscles in your body, and help improve balance and flexibility, as these sports require quick change in movement and direction.

Don’t’ wait to learn – this is the time! These sports are perfect for anyone at any age, and with a little determination, one can learn rather quickly. Don’t be hidden away in your home living the sedentary life during these winter months- Go out and play!

Heather is a Pennsylvania native raised near an old coal-mining town. She has been traveling the world since she was 3 months old. Her destination was Germany and the list continued from the great Swiss Alps to the stunning Taj Mahal. In visiting these countries at a younger age – the wilderness, camping, climbing, and skiing was not in the picture, but she knew there was always something missing. It wasn’t until her mid-twenties when she returned back to her of roots of PA that it clicked and everything came full circle. Heather now resides in the grand state of Colorado (which every person should) to take on the mountains and climb every face CO has to offer.
