Teach the Whole Family How to Ski
Do you love skiing? Do you have kids? If you answered yes to both of those questions then chances are you want to teach your little ones to enjoy the slopes as much as you do. Skiing can be a great family experience but teaching your kids how to ski can be difficult. Plus, if it doesn't go well, then they may be turned off by the experience and your dream of a great family skiing vacation could be ruined.
There are many learning options to choose from, but they don’t necessarily make it a whole-family experience. One option is to sign your kid(s) up for ski school, but that means you miss out on the whole process. Another option is a private lesson with a professional ski instructor, but this can be out of many people’s price range.
A third option is to sign up for a family ski class, like the one offered at Granlibakken, a hill just north of Homewood, California near the Lake Tahoe ski area.
This class includes an hour-long private lesson for $65, plus $30 for each additional person that comes along, and the lift ticket is included. Plus, equipment rentals for a lesson for a child and both parents cost just under $100, making this a great alternative.
A Better Way
Although this family program appears to offer a nice package it doesn’t help anyone outside of the Lake Tahoe area. So, if you’re looking for a great alternative to an expensive ski school, or a long-term lesson schedule with an individual instructor, then Launch Pad has the right ski training tools for you.
