January is a learn a Snow Sport month and here at Park City Mountain Resort we are dedicated to introducing both young and old to the sport of skiing and snowboarding. We now have a new dedicated learning zone and offer various programs to help you start sliding on the snow.
This past summer we created a dedicated beginner learning area with two conveyor lifts for beginning skiers and riders. The new beginner zone, located near the Resort Base Area, is reserved for students taking ski and snowboard lessons. This area is fenced off to give beginner skiers/riders a private, more comfortable learning area.
StartNOW is a unique program aimed at teaching Utah residents (ages 6 and up) how to ski or snowboard. It was designed to give those local never-evers an easily accessible and affordable introduction to snow sports. With StartNOW you get five sessions of instruction for first-time ski and snowboard students, that also includes lift access, equipment rentals and lessons, all for $199. That's less than $40 per session.
Ever wanted to give telemark skiing a try? Tuesday nights from January 10, 2012 through March 20, 2012, from 5pm - 7pm, you can join us under the lights of Payday and First Time lifts. This lesson is designed for those who have never telemarked skied or are working on their stance.
"Learn to Telemark" Lesson includes a First Time lift ticket and is $30. Purchase at the Payday ticket windows by 5pm and meet at the bottom of the Payday Lift at 5pm. 1/2 price telemark rentals are available at White Pine Touring at 1790 Bonanza Dr. 435-649-8710.
