January 2013 is National Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month and Shawnee Mountain is pleased to announce its participation in this nationwide effort to get people outside and enjoying winter activities. We encourage those new to snow sports to take a lesson and those who are experienced, to bring a friend or the family.
