Monday Madness: Win a First Time Ski or Snowboard Package

Enter to Win a first time ski snowboarding pack

Did you know January is Learn to Ski Month? Learning to ski is an investment of both time and money, but families in or near Pennsylvania are in luck: the Pennsylvania Ski Areas Association makes it easy with a variety of learning mountains available, all within the same network. All resorts provide new skiers with affordable learn to ski programs. What’s better than learning to ski close to home, for a reasonable price?



Ski PA’s First Time Ski/Snowboard Program is an excellent way to get started in winter sports. Offered at over a dozen Pennsylvania ski areas, the program includes a beginner lift ticket, lesson, and full equipment rental for only $49. In most ski areas, this won’t even buy you a ride up the chair lift (and in some, it won’t even buy your kids lunch).
