Young Vermonters Learn to Ski and Snowboard With “Take 3”

The Vermont Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports encourages young Vermonters to try skiing or snowboarding this winter by sponsoring 125 Vermont children for Ski Vermont’s Take 3 Beginner Package.

The subsidized $49 package encourages youth to experience the mountains while adopting a healthy and active lifestyle that they can carry with them through the years.

Each package included three full days on the mountain with a beginner ski or snowboard lesson, rentals and a beginner lift ticket. Children can choose to use all three days at the same resort, or travel around the state and discover new participating mountains.

This subsidized package is offered on a first-come, first-served basis and limited to the first 125 qualifying participants who apply here: The Vermont Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports/Ski Vermont Take 3 Beginner Package
