Learn Free! At Winter Park Resort
The keys to a rewarding first-time experience on skis or a
snowboard are a good attitude, professional instruction and minimal cost investment. Winter Park Resort's Ski and Snowboard School satisfies two out of three with its popular Learn For Free program.
Back again, the Learn For Free program is offered to adults 14 and older from Nov. 13 through Dec. 20, 2002.
With the purchase of an adult lift ticket, "never-evers" receive a FREE 2.5 hour lesson and a professional
introduction to skiing or snowboarding. The lessons are offered at 9:30 a.m. and 12:45 p.m. daily during the selected dates. New riders and skiers learn basic equipment use and lift riding skills and are taught how to perform basic movements, control speed and change direction on specialized learning terrain in DiscoveryPark.
Participants may register for classes at the Ski and Snowboard School desk in the Balcony House at the base of Winter Park and are encouraged to sign up at least a half an hour before the class is scheduled to begin. Lift tickets and rental equipment are not included.
"A positive first experience on the slopes is essential to learning to ski or snowboard," said Bob Barnes, director of the Ski and Snowboard School. "The Learn for Free program is one of Winter Park's most
important incentives for attracting new skiers and riders to the sport."
First-timers along with anyone who hasn't visited Winter Park recently are in for a pleasant surprise on
Berthoud Pass. During a four-year long construction project, Berthoud Pass was transformed from a narrow two-lane road with sharp curves and steep drop-offs to a wide, modern mountain highway providing safer and easier access to Winter Park Resort and Grand County.
