From the SkiVermont website…
January is Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month nationwide, and we know that there is no better place to experience the thrill of learning to ski or ride than in its original state. Here in Vermont, we have some of the best instructors in the world and plenty of terrain for those starting out. Learn to ski and ride month isn’t only for those who have never been on snow before. You can also learn a new snow sport through Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month. Ski Vermont is once again offering a $49 package for beginners including a beginner area lift ticket, professional lesson and rental in January 2017.
What’s the Deal?
In the spirit of spreading the love of winter to new enthusiasts, the majority of our member resorts will be offering $49 beginner lesson during the month of January, excluding Holiday periods. The beginner package includes equipment rental as well as a lesson with a professional instructor (lesson duration varies by resort) and access to the beginner terrain. Due to the deeply discounted price, we will only offer one beginner package per person.
These packages are for BEGINNERS ONLY and for the 2016/2017 season. See participating resorts with details and instructions for reserving your lesson below. Most reservations must be made 48 hours in advance of the desired lesson start time.
