Six North Lake Tahoe ski resorts are hosting a learn to ski or snowboard weekend… (Hank de Vre )
If you’re a novice who’s interested in skiing or snowboarding at North Lake Tahoe on Dec. 8 and 9 and want to start with a lesson rather than having a friend or spouse teach you, consider this:
Six resorts will host their annual Learn to Ski and Board Weekend those days. The event is designed for beginners, costs only $30 and includes an all-day beginner lift ticket, group lesson and gear rental.
First-timers can choose from Alpine Meadows, Boreal Mountain Resort, Granlibakken Resort, Homewood Mountain Resort, Squaw Valley and Sugar Bowl Ski. Several resorts also will offer guests savings good on a return visit.
Reservations aren’t required, but participants should arrive early. Lesson packages can be purchased at each individual resort the day of lessons. Students should contact resorts directly for resort-specific information.
Some restrictions apply. Resorts not open Dec. 8 and 9 may offer a Learn to Ski Weekend later in the season.
