School’s In: Spring Ski School Sessions at Sunlight Mountain Resort

Make 2019 your year to learn to ski, snowboard or improve your existing technique with expert lessons at Sunlight Mountain Resort in Glenwood Springs, Colorado.

Conditions are perfect at Sunlight Mountain Resort in Glenwood Springs, where a parade of snowstorms and cold nighttime temperatures are keeping the snow in primo shape on the slopes. If you’ve always wanted to learn to ski or snowboard, make this your year to schedule lessons at Sunlight Mountain. For skiers and riders with some experience who want to gain an edge or sharpen their technique for peak performance, lessons with Sunlight’s experts can make all the difference in taking your form from meh to boss!

“If you could take ski or snowboard lessons anywhere, Sunlight is one of the best choices,” Marketing and Sales Director for Sunlight Mountain Resort Troy Hawks said. “For starters, Sunlight’s terrain is ideally suited for those new to the sport; you’ll spend more time learning new skills and less time fighting and fearing the crowds. And, when it comes to affordability, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better value.”

Sunlight’s Lessons Launch a Love of the Sport

Sunlight’s Ski & Ride School staff are seasoned professionals with years of experience who pass on both their skills and their passion to students. The resort’s “Learn to Shine” program is one of the best in the nation for value and high-quality instruction. It includes three days of all-inclusive half-day lessons—equipment rental, lift tickets, instruction—and a free five-day ski pass after you’ve aced your skills on the slopes. Think of it as a graduation gift!

Even a single ski or snowboard lesson can get you started out right or provide critical feedback to improve your technique. Group and private lessons offer targeted instruction for kids as young as seven up through adults. Proficient and patient, Sunlight’s instructors specialize in teaching all ages including the littlest ones. For kids younger than seven, the resort’s Children’s Center gets tikes off to a solid start of learning skills while deftly managing shorter attention spans.

Sunlight Teaches a Lesson in Layering

It may sound obvious—wear layers and warm socks when you go skiing or riding—but there’s a lot that goes into putting together a proper outfit for a day on the slopes. Being prepared can make all the difference in having a positive on-mountain experience. The resort has an online guide that answers the question of what to wear from parkas to pants, goggles to gloves and all the wicking layers in between. Be sure to check it out before making tracks to Sunlight.

Après Sunlight in Glenwood Springs

Next to learning a new-to-you winter sport at Sunlight, one of the best ways to celebrate the acquisition of your hard-earned skills is with après-ski Glenwood Springs style—slopes by day and soaks by night— it’s a classic Glenwood Springs combo. The learning-to-ski curve may have been moderate to steep. Maybe you took a few spills learning to carve a turn or exiting the lift for the first (or 15th) time. Nothing feels better or more relaxing afterwards than a muscle-soothing soak or steam in the town’s geothermal amenities—Glenwood Hot Springs Resort, Iron Mountain Hot Springs and the Yampah Spa and Vapor Caves.
