Ski With Me

    Ski With Me (SWM) teaches kids to love winter. Professional instructors stress safety, promote fun, and teach kids the basic skills of skiing in a well-structured program. Then, the fun continues.
    SWM (Ski With Me) provides all the equipment, lift tickets, and lessons need to overcome the complexity, confusion, and cost to “never-ever” beginners. We are also working out transportation and even hope for ski clothes if needed.
    We have a minimum of four visits at Kissing Bridge, but weather permitting we expect up to 8 passes at KB. And we are working on a weekday “bonus” pass to another WNY ski area.
    Although originally conceived as a school program, we're more about family and community. So, we invite others, siblings and adults, skiers or not, to join in the fun. There will be ample “free time” to explore and enjoy all the slopes.
    Let’s realize skiing is as much a social event as it is a recreational activity. There is room for any “lounge lizards” who just want to sit by the indoor fireplace, enjoy their snacks, and share their beverages.
    Come to learn more from the organizer who will give a brief demonstration and address all questions.
