It's Ski Time for Kids and You
17 February 2007

Beginning in January kids from 12-18 years will be able to hit the slopes with lessons offered by the City of Albuquerque's Parks and Recreation Department along with parental and intern volunteers.

Three-day Ski or Snowboard Lessons will be held in January, February, and March in Sandia, Los Alamos, or Sipapu depending on snow and best value. The three-days of lessons cost $165 per guest. This fee covers adult supervision, transportation, lessons, and equipment. It is a package of fun and adventure for wholesome American activity on our beautiful, NM mountain slopes.

Dates are:

Participants will meet at the Parks and Rec Building, 1801 4th Street NW around 6:30 am (exact time to be determined) and return about 6 pm.

Pre-registration is required. Slots are filled on a first come first served basis. You may register at Parks and Recreation Administration Building or NMX. See below.


NMX Sports is a 501(c)-3 non-profit organization interested in providing opportunities for the 90% of the children who would like to take part in such sports as skiing, snowboarding, skateboarding, mountain biking, BMX, and wakeboarding. Unfortunately, only 20% who are interested can participate in such activities due to a lack of programs available. NMX is committed to provide these programs for kids and overcome traditional obstacles of cost, travel, supervision, and quality presentation. NMX is looking for parents, volunteers, and interns to provide the foundation. Let them know if you are interested in helping.
