    The first snow of the season hit Colorado’s high country over the weekend.

    Not graupel, hail or icy rain, but actual snow. The kind on which we’ll soon be skiing and snowboarding.  Of course, the snow quickly melted. It is, after all, officially summer. But there’s still an excitement that comes with the first snow of the season.

    The aspens are turning gold and there’s a chill in the air that seems to whisper, “Winter is coming.” Soon the snow guns will be churning away as Loveland and Arapahoe Basin ski areas launch their annual race to be the first ski area in the U.S. to open.

    But if you wait until the season is here to prepare, your first few times out could be rockier than the mountains. The time is now to get in the skiing mindset. We’re here to help you.

    1. Take a Lesson. It you’re a skiing or riding parent, it can be tempting to teach your kids on your own. If you don’t ski or ride, you don’t have this option. But no matter where you’re coming from, putting your child into at least one lesson from a certified instructor will get him or her off to a better start. Instructors are professionals who are smarter than parents when it comes to teaching kids how to ski and ride. They know the latest and best techniques and they know how to teach them effectively. January is the time to get your kids started. It’s national Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month and most resorts in Colorado offer deals for never-ever skiers and riders, as well as discounts on other lessons and rentals. If your child has a 5th Grade Pass from Colorado Ski Country USA, sign them up for their “First Class” lesson now! This is a free lesson and rental for 5th graders who have never skied or snowboarded. (And if your fifth grader doesn’t have a fifth grade pass yet, you can get one here). Continue Reading
