What is Bring a Friend?
Are you a skier or a snowboarder? Want to share your love for winter sports?
Bring a Friend is your chance to Introduce a friend or family member to skiing or riding this winter - and win great prizes for doing so.
The best way for newcomers to learn is by taking lessons from a professional instructor. “Friends” don’t teach friends.
Help a newcomer sign up for lessons. Learning programs are available at locations throughout the U.S. all winter long and January is Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month. Find out what is happening in your region.
If you just learned yourself or are a seasoned enthusiast, Bring a Friend to the snow this winter for lessons from a pro. Visit snow sports specialty retail shops for information about apparel, equipment and accessories.
Take the national Bring a Friend Challenge. It's a "friendly competition" for current participants and newcomers that offers some fantastic rewards just for helping to share the “love”.
