Helpful Links from Friends: Ski Deals & Town Programs

Exhausting day at our house. More on that later. Here’s some info. I gathered with help from friends:

Thanks to my friend Pam, the Niskayuna Continuing Ed Winter Programs catalog is out.

Rebecca reminded me that January is Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month and there are some great ski deals out there.

NY 4th Grade Ski & Ride Passport Program

For $20, kids can get up to 3 free lift tickets (with an adult ticket purchase) per participating New York mountains  and other discounts

 Ski for $10 on January 10th at participating New York mountains.

Vermont Fifth Grade Passport program

5th graders (10- to 11-year-olds) ski free at a bunch of different Vermont resorts with a paying adult, with blackout dates, mostly MLK weekend and February break. Apply online, pay $10, and it takes a couple of weeks to process.

January’s Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month in Vermont

A special deal for beginners only. $29 includes equipment rental, a lesson, and access to beginner terrain. This is available at many resorts, but MLK weekend is often blacked out and there are varying age restrictions for different resorts.
