January is "Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month"

Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month is a national initiative celebrated in January that encourages kids and adults to learn how to ski and/or snowboard, or improve their skills by taking lessons from a professional instructor. Governors in 16 states proclaimed January as the time to learn how to ski or snowboard! Now more than 300 ski and snowboard areas throughout the U.S. offer free and reasonably priced lesson programs during January as part of this initiative to get more Americans on the slopes. Click here to visit I Ski NY website for more information. Holiday Valley Resort, Holimont Ski resort and Kissingbridge ski resort are all participating in the program and have various discounts.

*The activities are subject to change and are respective property of their organizations.  See Holiday Valley Resort and other respective websites for more details on their events. The activity listing is as of January 3, 2012.
