One of the biggest advantages of joining the Topeka Ski Club is how much members love to share their knowledge. The club has members of every skill level who are happy to teach anyone how to reach the next level. This is particularly helpful for couples or families of mixed skill levels. Everyone can find a buddy who is at their level to ski or snowboard with; and one who can help you “level-up”. If you’ve never skied or snowboarded before, the club does recommend the beginners class offered by most resorts. Often, this provides special access to lifts and/or training slopes to get beginners up to speed much faster. Another advantage is traveling with someone who has been to a resort before and knows how to navigate the mountain, ride the lifts, and find the best places to eat and party!
