lssmlogoTens of thousands of winter enthusiasts migrate to the Keystone State Mountains every week to ski and snowboard on trails that offer cruising comfort in a majestic setting or the excitement of pulse pounding challenge on a downhill course.

Not knowing how to ski or board is no longer an excuse for sitting at home on the sidelines.

January has been designated, “Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month” in Pennsylvania.

It’s easier and more affordable than ever. For the entire month, the 19 member resorts of the Pennsylvania Ski Areas Association will offer a $5 discount on already low midweek “Learn A Snow Sport” packages. These special tickets include a first ski lesson, rental equipment, either skis or a snowboard and a lift ticket for use on any of the beginner areas.

For folks who yearn to find a winter activity and a chance to make new friends in the dynamic environment of a ski resort, Linda Irvin, director of the Pennsylvania Ski Areas Associations says, “We’re thrilled that our ski areas have united to offer an affordable "Learn to Ski and Snowbaord" program that will open the door to the wonderful world of skiing for many winter enthusiasts, throughout the entire season.”

Association member resorts are found in all regions of the state from the Endless Mountains to the Philadelphia suburbs, central Pennsylvania from the Maryland to New York borders and throughout the Alleghenies.
