Snowshoeing, skating, or skiing for n00bs

How can two oldsters, two college students, and a 15-year-old boy have fun in the snow or on the ice?

We'd like to take them to the mountains for a day trip or possibly overnight, but we're totally lame and don't know how to ski or skate. They probably know how to skate, but I don't think they ski. What would be fun and easy to learn? [more inside]
