Winter in Vermont is a wonderland to outdoor enthusiasts and Ski Vermont wants to help more people stay active and enjoy the outdoors during the snowiest season. January is Learn to Ski and Snowboard month and Ski Vermont offers $29 packages for new skiers and riders that include professional lessons, equipment rentals and a beginner lift ticket.
The packages are available at resorts throughout the state, non-holiday while supplies last. Registration for the $29 packages is available at skivermont.com/learn.
In addition to this year’s Learn to Ski and Ride Month, Nordic skiing and snowshoeing are free at multiple locations during Winter Trails Day on Saturday, January 11. The inventory of snowshoes, skis and lesson space is limited. Contact participating ski areas to verify details and availability, and learn more at snowlink.com.
Skiing and riding is even better with friends. Whether learning or a pro, skiers and riders are encouraged to introduce someone to their favorite sport this season and be entered to win a two night ski and stay package through the Bring A Friend program. Participants simply share photos and stories of friends learning to ski or snowboard on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter and tag it #BringaFriendVT to enter to win.
