Mountain High Hosts World's Largest Lesson Day on January 8, 2016
Wrightwood, Calif. – January's arrival marks the start of Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month at Mountain High and the resort is participating in the World's Largest Ski and Snowboard Lesson Day set for Friday, January 8 at 10:00 a.m.
Multiple winter resorts across the U.S., including Mountain High, will attempt to set industry and Guinness World Records for teaching people how to ski and snowboard.
"Since January is Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month, we decided to try something that has never been done before," said Mountain High Chief Marketing Officer John McColly. "Southern California is home to millions of potential skiers and snowboarders, so we're stoked about the possibility that Mountain High can help shatter the current lesson participation records."
The current record for world's largest ski lesson (both single and multiple venue) is 594 and 500 for world's largest snowboard lesson (both single and multiple venue).
"Our classes here at Mountain High help prepare skiers and snowboarders to succeed on the slopes," said Mountain High Director of Education Blaine Lomen. "World's Largest Lesson Day is the perfect opportunity for skiers and boarders of all ages to learn how much fun anyone can have on the best snow in Southern California and be part of a world record."
Lesson participants will learn how to properly use equipment, be introduced to basic skiing and snowboarding skills including safety, learn about types of terrain, demonstrate and be evaluated on what they learned during the 90 minute class. All attendees will receive an official certificate of completion upon finishing the lesson.
World's Largest Ski and Snowboard Lesson Day results will be certified by appropriate Mountain High personnel and sent to industry and Guinness World Records for verification and approval.
