I've been meaning to get around to this since I moved to Wyoming.   This weekend would be an excellent time to learn the ropes.   Or the slopes.    Whichever.   Here's the info from our friends at Hogadon:

Hogadon Ski Area offers affordable packages to learn to ski or snowboard Saturday and Sunday, January 15 and 16. Take advantage of this awesome opportunity that includes a full one-hour lesson, all your ski or snowboard gear, and a full day lift ticket!

It is a group lesson geared to introduce the first-time participant to this wonderful sport. Whether you have always wanted to ski or ride – now is the time to sign up individually or grab friends and family and head to Hogadon to see how easy it is! Skiing and snowboarding are great exercise, a fantastic way to be to be outside during the winter months, a road to many memories, and a great sport that is available right in your backyard!
