There’s an apparent increase in certified ski and snowboard instructors getting paid for lessons outside of normal working hours, a trend that has prompted resorts to take action.
Notwithstanding the fact snowboarding, as we know it today, got its start at Stratton Mountain, Vt., the iconic U.S. Snowboarding Championship is moving from the southern Vermont resort to Vail, Colo.
Well, it’s an annual rite of spring at Vail. The wet and wild day is April 15, 2012, sponsored by Rockstar energy drink. Vail is not alone, either.
Springtime is music time in the mountains and from coast to coast, resorts are rocking in the festive vibe with sunshine, soft snow, warm temperatures, live on-snow concerts, events and festivals.
