Skiing with your family can be a fun and memorable event. Worried about your children's safety? A parents’ number one concern when kids head out skiing/snowboarding is on-hill safety and Snowlink.com has worked with the National Ski Patrol to help parents’ start a dialogue with kids and review the do’s/don’ts when hitting the slopes with the Safety IQ Test.
And while being snow smart is essential, a lesson from a professional is even more important. Snowlink.com has also created a great tool for locating ski schools and snowboard schools across the country. An introduction to this fabulous activity can relieve many concerns for parents and instill some excitement in the kids before hitting the slopes.
Each season, SIA collects the most current information and resources for all things SNOW, helping consumers improve their skill level, locate equipment and the latest in snow sports fashion on Snowlink.com. Being informed and prepared is the best way to ensure you and your entire family enjoy skiing together.
