Skiing is fun once you learn but it can be an expensive sport to try out. I am 100% behind lessons. Sometimes I see people flying or tumbling down the hill and I’m always truly baffled as to why an adult would just go at it on their own their very first time on skis. I think lessons are absolutely necessary to avoid injury. It can be expensive to try out skiing for the first time and I think that’s why some people opt not to do lessons but I’m super happy to see the Never Ever Days program through the Canadian Ski Council.
This is a national program for the absolute beginner who has Never Ever tried skiing or snowboarding. It is for anyone over the age of 6 years old who has considered these sports but not quite yet taken the leap to strap into a board or onto skis. The program provides you with everything you need to learn: equipment rental, beginner lift ticket, and a minimum one-hour lesson – all for just $25 plus HST.
On Sunday, January 26th over 50 ski hills across Canada will come together for a special Never Ever Day, offering Canadians the chance to try the sport together in what is being called Canada’s Largest Lesson.
On this day, the included ski hills will bring skiing and snowboarding to as many newbies as possible. Simply choose from the list of participating ski areas, fill out your form, and voila …. you’re all set to experience your very first day on the slopes!
