Bring a Friend Weekend Challenge

Help a friend sign up and learn to ski or snowboard from a professional for your chance to win new gear. Sounds pretty good, right?

January is "Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month," which means resorts and shops across the country will offer their best deals for beginners to get out and learn the slopes with the pros. And for those that already know how to rip, "Bring a Friend Weekend" is January 5-7, and that is your time to potentially win all kinds of new gear by getting your friends involved.

Learn to Ski and Snowboard

The "Bring a Friend Challenge," presented by Snocru, is designed to encourage friends to help their friends sign up for beginner lessons from a pro. In return for helping a newcomer register, friends get a chance to win prizes. This year's prizes include skis from Head and Dynastar, snowboards from Never Summer and Burton, goggles from Zeal Optics, gloves from Seirus and more.

Check out the official website for more information on the Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month programs and participating resorts. If you have a friend that wants to learn how to ride from a pro, be sure to sign up for Bring a Friend Weekend.
