The Official Learn to Ski or Snowboard Record was Set - Now What?

Categories: Media Center Guest Connection Tech Talk

More than 100 people participated in the World's Largest Lesson record attempt at Mt. Hood MeadowsWe received word from the organizers of the World's Largest Lesson that last Friday's world record attempts for largest ski and largest snowboard lessons should be successful. The first attempt a year ago ran into some logistic issues, with problems documenting that all the lessons were happening at the same time. Here is the message from Learn a Snow Sports Month officials:

I’m happy to report that with a little over 1/3 of the participated US resorts reported we already have enough documented participation to submit to Guinness for both the Ski and Snowboard records. I expect that we’ll receive more numbers from US resorts throughout the week, and are still awaiting the Canadian delegations participation numbers. Once we have all the final numbers, I will package everything up and send it over to the good folks at Guinness, at which point it will be in their hands to authenticate if we achieved the records or not. Regardless of their final decision, I know we can all take pride in the effort we put in this year. A truly record-breaking day for our industry, and lots of new skiers and snowboarders introduced to the sports.
