Extreme skier and PSIA certified instructor Glen Plake will be at Meadows to teach a class Friday, January 18 as part of National Learn to Ski & Snowboard Month!
Glen Plake has been featured in ski films for decades, thrilling us with his fearless charge down steeps and free fall cliffs that only the most extreme skiers dare to attempt. His spiked Mohawk is his trademark, promoting the wild side and over the edge approach to the sport and lift in general.
Glen became the first skiing ambassador for the National Ski & Snowboard Month
initiative, and has since become a certified ski instructor through PSIA. He'll be at Meadows this Friday as part of an Elan demo day, and instructing guests in an exclusive learn to ski package.
The package is limited to 20 people, and includes a beginner day pass, equipment rentals and four hours of instruction. The morning session will be with Meadows instructors to go over the basics, get everyone comfortable with the equipment, and moving on the snow. Everyone will be prepped for the afternoon session, which will be led by Glen. The package is $85 and can be purchased here
(for ages 13 and older).
Plake will be at the Elan demo tent to meet and even take runs with guests following the lesson, Friday afternoon.
