Every month has its monikers and January in the snow biz is known as “Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month”. (It’s also Safety Awareness Month, but more on that later).
If you’ve never skied or snowboarded, lesson deals abound at Crystal. The most popular lesson for newbies is our Learn To Turn session, covering all the basics to get you started – check out the details on our website. If you’re already a skier or snowboarder, then take advantage of the opportunities offered by this month’s “Bring a Friend” campaign. The title bears out its purpose: to have friends introduce friends to snowsports.
Of skiers and riders polled by the Snowsports Industries of America, only twenty percent were introduced to their sport by a parent (and it was mostly Dad, not Mom). The vast majority of them trotted out to the slopes for the first time with a friend who had skied before. Trouble is, it’s not always best for the friendship to try and teach your buddy how to conquer the mountain. At Crystal, we’re making it easy for both of you by offering a two-hour semi-private lesson for two people for the price of one private lesson. Both of you get individual attention – you for honing your skills and brushing up on your turning talents, thus impressing your friend, while said friend will get the proper instruction for a positive start-up experience. It’s a win-win situation.
Plus, once your friends are friendly with the boards underfoot, they’ll want to return to the slopes. So this January at Crystal, you can purchase one adult open-to-close lift ticket every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and receive one open-to-close lift ticket FREE for your friend. (not valid, obviously with other specials or discounts). Certainly this will make them indebted to you for life. There’s also a way for you to win prizes in January’s “Bring a Friend” affair by getting credit for introducing newcomers to Snowsports. Go to bringafriend.org for all the details. See you and your friends on the slopes!
