Tip of the Week

While allowing your friends or family members to teach you to ski may have an economic advantage, most experts would advise against this. There are many subtleties involved in the sport of alpine skiing, and in many cases, only trained professional ski instructors are able to communicate them.

Here are some of them.

They combine lift tickets, equipment rental and lessons for a reasonable price.Look for Lodging and Lesson Packages: If you stay at a Sugarloaf Maine on-mountain property, your lessons are free!
