Parks & Recreation, NMX Sports Offering Youth Ski and Snowboard Lessons

Packages available for skiers and riders of all skill levels

The City of Albuquerque Parks and Recreation Department is partnering with NMX Sports to offer ski and snowboard lessons to Albuquerque’s kids. Six trips are planned to either Sipapu Ski & Summer Resort or Pajarito Mountain to make staying active in winter fun, convenient, and affordable. Trips are for kids age 11-17.

“Parks and Recreation is excited to partner with NMX Sports to help Albuquerque kids hit the slopes,” stated Dave Simon, Director of Parks and Recreation. “This is the best ski deal in town, and the kids will have so much fun.”

Participants have the option of three packages depending on their gear needs and skill levels, all of which include transportation:

  • Lesson Package ($65): Comes with everything needed to learn or refine your skills – group lesson, lift ticket, and rental gear (helmet, boots, and skis or board).
  • Rental Package ($55): For those who do not own their own gear, but have the skill set to ski or ride on their own.
  • Lift Ticket Package ($45): For those who own their own gear and just need a ticket to ski or ride.
