Killington VT skiing

Although there is something to be said for lodge lazing, not knowing “how to” is no excuse to skip the slopes. While the prospect of learning to ski may seem a daunting challenge, certain Northeastern resorts believe that the winter season is really a time for beginners.

In celebration of Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month in January, more than a dozen mountains are offerings free ski lessons in Vermont for beginner skiers and riders during .

One of our favorite slopes is at Stowe Mountain |

What’s the deal: Stowe’s program specifically caters its teaching methods to adult learning. The ski package, which includes lift tickets, rental equipment, and lessons, is only $29. Mount Stowe also offers small group sizes (classes are capped at six participants) and offers equipment specially designed for beginners. The price for one adult 2.5 hour clinic is typically $117.

Reward yourself with: Hot chocolate and a chocolate-drizzled waffle from the Waffle House.
