Education level often times dictates job possibilities.  Brain surgeons are not high school drop-outs.  Similarly, your education level on the snow dictates your possibilities on the mountain.  To help raise the collective Ski IQ of the masses, Vail Resorts is promoting higher education with Learn a Snow Sport Month with deals on children’s and adult ski and snowboard school lessons through February 8th.  Vail resorts encompasses five world class mountains: Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone, and Heavenly.  Find the nearest Vail Resorts’ mountain, arrive without your number two pencil and take advantage of 20% off all-day private lessons or for group lessons, buy two lessons, get on free“With amazing snow, now is the time to learn to ski or snowboard or to improve your skills at one of our highly acclaimed ski and snowboard schools," said Rob Kats, chief executive officer of Vail Resorts.

Be kind to your friends, as the best way to introduce someone to the sport we all love is to make sure they have a good first experience.  That won’t happen if your idea of "teaching" a friend is taking them up to the top and giving them an introductory push.

Even for more seasoned mountain enthusiasts, a private lesson will greatly enhance your established skill-set.  The technology revolution in skiing has had a direct impact on what is considered proper technique.  The game has changed, and Vail instructors can help bring your skiing into the 21st century. “If you haven’t taken a lesson in a few years, you’ll be surprised,” says Pete Sonntag of Beaver Creek’s ski school. “In many of our camps, clinics and private lessons, we use video analysis and progressive teaching techniques to introduce you to the sport or to fine-tune a few minor things that make a major difference.”   Courses and the deals on those courses end February 8th.  Higher education, it’s a resumé builder!
