Take a lesson! This is the single best path to guaranteeing success . MT SPOKANE SKI RESORT people are friendly, funny coaches that will help you through the process with tips and tricks that make learning easy. HSSKI has partnered with Mt Spokane for over a decade with great success!
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR!? Dress for success. A surefire way to give yourself a less-than-enjoyable experience your first time out (or any time in a winter environment, for that matter), is to wear cotton & denim. We have a saying – “Cotton Kills” when on the hill. Cotton soaks up water from the snow & moisture from sweat, then lowers your body temperature. Jeans act the same way. Always wear a layer of poly long underwear, followed by wicking insulating layers such as fleece. Your jacket & pants should be fairly waterproof. Gloves and a hat, or better yet, a helmet are a must. Goggles will keep the cold temps and snow out of your eyes.
TIME FLIES WHEN YOU'RE HAIVNG FUN! Give yourself time. From choosing what to wear, to driving up the mountain road (which is usually well-groomed and clear), to arriving and wondering where to go, your first day as a new skier and snowboarder will be full of new experiences. Give yourself plenty of time to enjoy them! We recommend arriving at the ski area no less than an hour before your lesson start time – we’ve found this is the minimum time beginners need to navigate the new process.
WHAT A GREAT PRICE! Save money. Come to the HSSKI day and enjoy the homeschooling community for a fraction of the cost. AND... your lift tickets are for ALL DAY SKIING! This means you get to day & night ski! YAY!!
HAVE fun! We were all beginners at some point. You will ALWAYS remember your first day on snow – Enjoy it!
