Friends don’t let friends sit inside all winter.
Introduce someone to skiing or snowboarding this season with the help of Ski Vermont’s discounted learn-to-turn programs. From the young to old, beginner lessons are for anyone looking to pick up a winter sport and enjoy time in the beautiful Green Mountains.
“It is our mission to grow the industry and share our love for the mountains with new skiers and snowboarders every winter,” said Sarah Wojcik, Director of Marketing and Communications at Ski Vermont.
The Take 3 Beginner Package encourages new skiers and snowboarders to get out on Vermont’s mountains for three days of lessons for $129. Each day includes ski and snowboard rentals, a beginner lesson with a professional instructor and a beginner lift ticket. Redeem the three days at three separate resorts or all at the same resort. Participants also have a chance to win one of ten beginner packages from Rossignol or Burton Snowboards at the end of the season.
Vermont children can save even more. Each winter the Vermont Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports works with Ski Vermont to provide Vermont youth with affordable opportunities to get them out on the slopes of their home mountains. Thanks to this partnership, 125 Vermont children will get to experience three full days on the mountain with lessons, rentals and lift tickets for just $49 this season.
January is national Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month and in Vermont that means $49 beginner packages at participating resorts. Packages include ski or snowboard rentals, professional beginner lessons and lift tickets accessing Vermont’s beginner terrain.
In its 18th year, Ski Vermont’s Fifth Grade Passport program allows fifth graders to ski and snowboard up to 88 times a season for just $10. The passport helps children to develop healthy active habits and introduces them to sports that can span their lifetime. For the second year now, proceeds from the passport will go to the Working Lands Enterprise Initiative.
Bring a friend or family member to the mountains this season and get rewarded. Introduce a friend or family member to the sport of skiing or snowboarding by purchasing a Take 3 Beginner Package for them. Purchasers could be rewarded with two lift tickets to a Vermont resort or win a 2-night ski & stay package for the 2018-19 season.
