Saturdays are great days to go skiing there is no regular day school and a lot of us don't have to work on Saturday.
I learned to ski in North Conway, New Hampshire. It was a good place to learn at Mount Cranmore.
Back then we played in a band called "Bandwagon" at the Alpine Inn (gone now), and it was right across the parking lot from the mountain so I could walk to the mountain and ski for free for a month straight.
After that, as I played in a band, we played at ski areas a lot, and there was some serious skiing going on.
You can go to the nearest ski resort and get a rental pair of skis and bam get on the mountain. I suggest taking at least one lesson the first time you want to ski.
