Great time to get outside
Events foster love of wintertime sports
New Year's Resolutions aside, getting outdoors in winter is just plain fun - and something your family will remember for years to come. Two great events make it easy to get out and explore something new:
- January is Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month. If you're daunted by the logistics of learning to ski or snowboard, there's no better way to be introduced to these sports than with Schweitzer's lesson, lift ticket and rental for $40 - happening during the month of January. This first-timer package helps your family get the gear and the instruction they need to have a lifetime love of skiing or snowboarding! Plus - if they keep going with the program, they have a chance to earn a GRAD CARD, good for FREE skiing and riding this spring!
- Winter Trails Day is Jan. 26. Here's a chance for kids and adults to try snowshoeing and cross-country skiing, and to discover the great fitness benefits of these easy-to-learn sports. Over 100 events are planned across the U.S.; Schweitzer's contribution to Winter Trails includes free trail access for snowshoe trails and Nordic ski trails, plus there are multiple hosted snowshoe hikes throughout the day. Reserve a spot by calling the Activity Center at 208-255-3081.
