Special Offers Available at Resorts From Alaska to North Carolina and Everywhere in Between

Because “Humans Were Never Meant to Hibernate,” resorts across the country are ready for the 11th Annual Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month in January 2019. It’s the snow sports industry’s initiative to get more children and adults outdoors in winter.

Resorts offer their best beginner deals during January, but lessons from professional instructors are available all winter long.

New in 2019 is the addition to the www.learntoskiandsnowboard.org website about 100 Nordic Centers that offer cross-country skiing and often snowshoeing. Some locations are participating in the January Special Offers and all are posted in the Find Resorts section of the website.
