Learn to Ski & Snowboard 2017

Young Vermonters find a new way to love winter in Vermont

What can $20 get you these days? How about a beginner ski or snowboard lesson for a Vermont child, including rentals and a lift ticket?

This past January, the Vermont Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports sponsored 300 Vermont children with $20 beginner packages to encourage our youth to get sliding this winter and adopt an active lifestyle throughout life. Participants must have beeen under 18, a Vermont resident, and received a downhill ski or snowboard lesson, rental equipment and a beginner lift ticket.

Participating Vermont resorts include:

  • Bolton Valley
  • Bromley Mountain
  • Jay Peak Resort
  • Mount Snow 
  • Smugglers’ Notch Resort
  • Sugarbush Resort
