Families needed for Niños On Skis

Niños On Skis is looking for sponsor families. Niños On Skis is a 10-year-old program that pairs English-speaking families in the Park City area with Hispanic children who don’t have the resources to take advantage of Utah’s mountains. Sponsor families must have a ski pass at Park City Mountain Resort. PCMR donates a ski pass and ski lessons to each participating child. The program meets together the first three Saturdays of December for organized lessons, and families are encouraged to ski with their niños as often as possible after that. For more information, call or email Ernest Oriente at 615-8486, .
