Hundreds of beginning skiers invade the snow-covered slopes of Alta Saturday for the second of four scheduled sessions in the Deseret News Ski School.

For many of the students, it will be their first taste of the real stuff after the opening session last week - a dry land class - at Sugarhouse Park. Two more lessons on Dec. 3 and 10 will complete this year's school.The two-hour classes begin at 9:30 a.m. and students are to meet at the Albion Day Lodge for assignment to instructors. A few openings still exist, and those interested in joining the school may register at Alta Saturday prior to the lesson.
