TAHOE/TRUCKEE, Calif. and#8212; Not everyone can gracefully schuss down black diamond slopes and North Lake Tahoe ski resorts are giving novice skiers and snowboarders the opportunity to learn at bargain prices. The 11th Annual Learn to Ski and Board Weekend, scheduled for Dec. 11-12, costs $25 and includes an all-day beginner lift ticket, group lesson and gear rental.

First-timers have their choice of seven resorts at which to learn, including Alpine Meadows, Boreal Mountain Resort, Granlibakken, Homewood Mountain Resort, Northstar-at-Tahoe, Squaw Valley USA and Sugar Bowl.

Reservations are not required, but participants should arrive early. Lesson packages can be purchased at each individual resort the day of lessons. Students should contact resorts directly for resort-specific information.

Some restrictions apply. If resorts are not open Dec. 11-12 due to early conditions they may offer a Learn to Ski Weekend later in the season, however, with the fantastic snowfall, it is expected to be a go.
