WINTER SPORTS — January is national “Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month,” and most of Idaho's 18 winter resorts are offering incentives for newcomers to try out their snow sports.

In addition, the Bring a Friend program offers incentives to skiers and boarders who introduce novice skiers to professional ski lessons.

North Idaho highlights include:

Free Ski School at Lookout Pass for youths ages 6-17. Free lessons are offered every Saturday morning Jan. 12t- March 16 for those who register by Jan. 26.   

Lesson discounts for youth and adult skiers at Schweitzer and Silver Mountain.  New skiers and snowboarders can get lessons for $39-$49 in January.

EZ 1-2-3 packages — including 3 lessons, 3 rentals, and 3 lift tickets — cost $99 from Lookout Pass, $129 from Silver Mountain and Schweitzer.
