"It can be tempting to have your friends try and teach you to ski or snowboard," said Diamond Peak Ski and Snowboard School Director Carl Hill. "But the absolute best way for new skiers and riders to learn the necessary skills and to start off on the right foot is for them to go with a pro. We'll teach you proper technique and eliminate potentially bad habits from the start.
"You'll learn, you'll have more fun, and hopefully you'll come back and do it all over again."
