Lake Tahoe resort to offer free ski, snowboard lessons

HOMEWOOD Calif. — Homewood Mountain Resort will offer free lessons for intermediate and advanced skiers and snowboarders, officials announced this week.

According to a release from the West Shore resort, complimentary lessons for the 2013-14 season include a mountain tour.

Instruction will focus on techniques designed to help experienced skiers/riders get the most out of their equipment while staying in control in all conditions — from powder to trees to steeps to variable snow.

“There is always something new to learn when it comes to skiing and snowboarding, and there is no better way to improve, at any level, than with a professional instructor providing guidance,” Homewood’s Snowsports Director Bryan Schilling said in a statement.

Schilling is a member of the prestigious Professional Ski Instructors of America Western Demo Team as well as the chair of the PSIA-W/AASI Education Foundation.

Free lessons will be offered Sunday through Friday, on non-peak dates throughout the season.
