About Today: Learn to Ski or Snowboard 1/14/11

From Jen Hubley, your About Today Editor
Every year, my friends threaten to make me learn how to ski or snowboard. They do this, despite the fact that I've told them repeatedly my body only wants to go down the mountain head first. Actually, I think they're my friends. It's also possible that they're trying to kill me.

Learn to Ski or Snowboard for Less 
If I'm going to do it, this month is the time, though. It's Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month, so a lot of resorts are having deals on lessons.
Do I Need to Take Skiing Lessons? 
Presumably, they'll teach me how to improve my relationship with gravity. Or at least learn how to fall better.
Get Ready to Snowboard 
I'd settle for a general reduction in bruisey-ness. The one time I tried to learn to snowboard, I wound up with a perfect impression of my boot on my backside. Don't ask me how I managed to kick my own butt. I still don't know.
Learn to Ski or Ride on Extreme Slopes 
If you're already past the bunny slope stage, you might go for the more extreme slopes. I'll wave to you from the lodge.
