A new year has just begun, just in time to learn a new snow sport!
The new year means you have a chance to start something new. The good news is in Southern California, the only place that makes sense to accomplish learning a new snow sport is Big Bear Mountain Resorts.
Maybe you have friends or family members that know how to ski or ride a snowboard, and you’ve always wanted to join in their fun adventures. However, you just didn’t know how to get started. Maybe you’ve been skiing all of your life, and now have some children that are aching to get started on the slopes to join mom and dad. Both Bear Mountain and Snow Summit take pride in being the best place to learn skiing or riding anywhere in California. In fact, Big Bear Mountain Resorts is known as “So Cal’s Learn to Ski and Ride Headquarters.”
The ski resorts in Big Bear cater to all ages for both beginner and intermediate classes. The resorts offer lessons that are conducted by qualified, professional instructors that know the ins and outs of getting up on skis or a snowboard. It’s a fun environment with no pressure. For the little tykes there is Little Bear Camp and Little Bear School at Snow Summit where kids as young as three and four years old can get started on the bunny slopes. At Bear Mountain there is Riglet Park, where kids from three to six years old are introduced to ride on miniature park features by using Burton’s innovative Learn-to-Ride Technology.
Kids in the 8-12 age range are the perfect example for learning a new snow sport. They are at the age where they are more motivated, and have adapted better physical abilities. Both Bear Mountain and Snow Summit provide ideal beginner terrain for this age group.
Of course the ski resorts offer adult classes too. The classes are for persons age 13 and older. One of the great things about learning a new snow sport is it is never too late to learn. This is one winter activity where “you can teach an old dog a new trick!” Snow Summit has reported to have taught people in their seventies how to ski for the first time. There are adults that have skied before, but now want to learn how to snowboard. At Big Bear Mountain Resorts this in not a problem and Big Bear’s qualified instructors will show anyone who wants to learn the ropes of having fun on the slopes.
If you have ever had even the slightest inkling of learning how to ski or snowboard, now is the time. January is Learn a Snow Sports Month and we invite you to come up to Big Bear for a good time in the snow!
Happy New Year,
