Deals Abound for Utah Skiers

Jessica Kunzer, Director of Communication for Ski Utah tells about the January Ski Deals For First Time Skiers

Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month is a national initiative that began in 2007 and has grown to 34 states and over 300 resorts participating.
The program strives to make learning skiing and snowboarding easy, accessible and affordable for children and adults. Many governors from across the country have endorsed this program including Utah’s very own Governor Gary Herbert. Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month has challenged everyone to get out and exercise this year with the theme “Humans Were Never Meant to Hibernate.”

“Learning to love winter recreation and lifetime sports is a great way to stay healthy all year long,” noted Ski Utah Marketing Director Raelene Davis. “Additionally, we hope this initiative will encourage more Utahns to enjoy the state’s most famous resource, The Greatest Snow on Earth®.”

Utah’s resorts have celebrated this challenge and will be offering unique deals to each resort including the following:
