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 included:
- Bolton Valley
- Bromley Mountain
- Jay Peak Resort
- Mount Snow
- Smugglers’ Notch Resort
- Sugarbush Resort
Keep an eye out next year for when the Learn to Ski and Snowboard program returns in 2018!
