That used to be a common term for a “beginner” skier. Now, you’re more likely to be called a “never ever” or “first-timer.” You (and maybe your friend) will come into Sno-Haus wide-eyed and maybe a bit hesitant. The conversation might start something like: “I’m going skiing for the first time with my boyfriend’s family,” or, “I’m going on a school trip.” You might even say something to the effect of: “I want the kids to learn how to ski,” or, “my friends are making me go snowboarding even though I’m afraid.” You’ll see the roomfuls of gear to choose from and your brow might dampen. It can seem overwhelming.
But at Sno-Haus, you can relax and have some FUN. Our staff loves skiing and snowboarding and we love first timers. We remember when we were “bunnies,” and we can’t wait to introduce you to and give you advice about the best winter activity on earth.
Our clothing specialists will guide you through what to wear from head-to-toe. We can help keep to your budget by figuring out what items you may already have in your closet (or that you might be able to borrow from your friends) that will work for your first trip. We will make sure that you are dressed in the warmest and driest way so that the cold doesn’t stop the fun.
Next is a trip to our ski or snowboard department. Our experts will help you decide whether to rent equipment for the trip, and they can do a safety check or adjust bindings on equipment that you already may have available. They will also discuss helmet safety and whether you should purchase goggles.
We know you will LOVE skiing and snowboarding with a little expert advice. After your trip, please come in and tell us how it went. Let us know what worked for you and what didn’t so we can make your next experience even better. Soon you will be walking through our front doors with the assuredness of a long-time skier/snowboarder.
Welcome to one of the greatest activities ever!
