Alpine Sports

Originally published in TEACH Magazine, January/February 2020 Issue

When temperatures plummet and snow begins to fall, it’s only natural to want to stay indoors and keep learning inside the classroom. Heading outdoors however, is not only a great way to fight cabin fever, but also to stay active. Alpine sports are a popular choice in the winter and many ski resorts offer Snow Schools or organized field trip activities. Ski and snowboard instructors are certified and teach kids how to stay safe while having fun. School programs and lessons also meet most physical education and health and wellness curriculums. Check out these ski resorts that let kids slide through the season and embrace winter.
