Approximately 32 first-time skiers and 13 first-time snowboarders came to Bristol Mountain Friday with the goal of learning to ski and snowboard. The added bonus? Participating in the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest snowsports lesson.
This is part of a snowsports January Learn to Ski or Snowboard initiative. Participating ski areas around the U.S. and Canada all gave ski and snowboard lessons at the same time within their respective time zones. The numbers from each ski area will be tallied together in hopes of breaking the former record.
