January is Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month (LSSM), celebrating the value and benefits of professional instruction. One of the highlights of the month, Learn to Ski and Snowboard Day, takes place this Friday, January 11.
In this First Chair Podcast, PSIA Alpine Team member Heidi Ettlinger and LSSM’s Mary Jo Tarallo discuss how you can take advantage of this great event celebrating the value of professional instruction. Encourage your school to participate in the entire the month, the day, or both by planning to attract new customers.
