The national "Bring a Friend Challenge" simply means introducing a newcomer to skiing or snowboarding through lessons from professional instructors. It gives current skiers or snowboarders and newcomers a chance to win some great prizes. The choice of venue is up to YOU!

Who is Eligible to Win?

Anyone who invites and helps sign up newcomers to beginner ski or snowboard lessons from professional instructors is elibile to win prizes in the Bring a Friend Challenge. You might be a current skier or snowboarder or a newcomer yourself.  

1) If you are a current skier or snowboarder, just introduce at least one newcomer – a friend or family member – to a beginner lesson or lesson package from a professional instructor.

2) If you are a newcomer yourself, bring another newcomer with you to take beginner lessons from a pro. It's more fun to learn with a friend or family member. 

Either way, you will be considered an "Inviter". Those those who you invite/help enroll will be considered "Invitees". These terms will apply when the registration form is filled out. 

Qualified participants - Inviters - can win among weekly prizes offered by Challenge sponsors. Product prize winners will be drawn starting the first week in January through March 14. Grand Prize four-day trips to Park CityDeer Valley and The Canyons in Utah or Topnotch Resort in Vermont (during the 2013-14 season) will be awarded at the end of the Challenge.
