Holiday Valley Offering Half Price Beginner Packages

Stop wondering how much fun it is to ski or snowboard and come do it! January is Learn a Snowsport Month, and Holiday Valley will offer half price beginner ski and snowboard packages throughout the entire month. Get instruction from the Snow Pros and realize what you’ve been missing out on!

As a nationwide initiative, Learn a Snowsport month encourages folks to get out on the hill and experience just how much fun it is to enjoy winter. If you stay at The Inn at Holiday Valley mid-week, you’ll get a free learn to ski/snowboard package. And on January 11th, everyone is encouraged to come learn to ski or ride on National Learn to Ski and Snowboard Day - for just $25. 

At Holiday Valley, the month brings in over 1,000 new skiers and snowboarders for learn to ski/learn to ride packages. And in 2016, they participated in “The World’s Largest Ski and Snowboard Lesson,” where multiple resorts banded together in an attempt to break the world record … they didn’t break the record but over 6,000 people across the country learned to ski or snowboard on that one day!

“We’re trying to get as many people introduced positively to the sport as we can,” said Allie Doro, Holiday Valley’s Snowsports Director.  “With something like this, we take three ‘have to have’ things - rental, lesson and lift ticket - and make it super affordable. Hopefully people come out and surprise themselves and love it.” 

A half price package during January gets you a lesson, rental and lift ticket for the School Haus area. You’ll also get a Rip 19 Card - a card with deals from Holiday Valley and surrounding shops. If you love the lesson and want to come back any time through Dec. 31, 2019, you can use your Rip Card for a 25% discount. 

“Especially in places where lift tickets are $200 for the day, this is an awesome deal,” Doro said. “It’s a really inexpensive way to get out on the hill.” 

Learn to Ski/Learn to Ride is valid for adult lessons only (ages 12 and up), except for Learn to Ski & Snowboard Day, where it’s ages 6 and up. Learn to Ski/Ride night lessons are available for ages 8 and up.
