Calling all beginner skiers and snowboarders!
On Friday, January 8, 2016 at 10AM EST, Camelback Resort will be offering beginner lessons to help set the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest multi-venue ski and the largest multi-venue snowboard lessons ever taught.
The event will unofficially kick-off the snow sports industry’s Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month (January). More than 150 ski resorts nation-wide have registered to host a Guinness Book of World Records event in pursuit of four separate records. Records will be set for the world’s largest multi-venue ski lesson and the world’s largest snowboard lesson. From this group, the single venue ski lesson and the single venue snowboard lesson record will also be determined.
Beginners, ages 6+ are encouraged to participate. The cost is $25 and includes ski or snowboard rental, lower mountain lift ticket, and a 90-minute instructor-led group lesson taught in a fun and non-intimidating environment. This is a 75% discount off the regular retail rate. Participants are welcome to continue to ski or ride on the lower mountain after the lesson concludes. To register, call 570.629.1661, extension 7 and speak to a Call Center representative.
All proceeds benefit the Pennsylvania Center for Adaptive Sports, a program dedicated to improving the health and well-being of people with disabilities by promoting healthy and active lifestyles. Camelback Resort further supports the Center for Adaptive Sports through their Adaptive Ski Program, now in its 13th year of operation.
“We believe a guest’s first lesson should be about having fun, as well as developing a new life-long skill,” said Brian Czarnecki, vice president, sales and marketing for Camelback Resort. “This season, tens of thousands will learn to ski and snowboard here, and since guests can now stay overnight at Camelback Lodge & Aquatopia Indoor Waterpark, there’s more time to be spent on the Mountain.”
Camelback Resort is renowned in the snow sports industry for instructor led lessons and Terrain Based Learning programs. Notably, Camelback Resort was named the #1 place in America to learn to ski and snowboard by the Huffington Post and is a recipient of the National Ski Area Association Conversion Cup, which is awarded annually to one resort nationally for their excellence in beginner programs.
