Tweet: What can $10 get you today? It will get 250 Vermont children skiing & snowboarding for the first time! Details: http://vermontfitness.org/learn-to-ski-and-snowboard/

MONTPELIER, Vt. - The Vermont Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports announces it will sponsor 250 young Vermonters with discounted ski or ride lessons during Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month in January.

“Vermonters love to be physically active all year, and our state is known far beyond its borders as a destination for snow sports,” said Governor Peter Shumlin. “As a cross country skier, I enthusiastically support the Council’s efforts to get Vermonters of all ages outdoors and active this winter.”

This is the second year that the Council has partnership with Ski Vermont, the statewide organizer of Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month, to dovetail the association’s established learn-to program. Vermonters under 18 are eligible for a $10 ski or ride beginner lesson, equipment rentals and lift tickets while supplies last. Apply for this offer at VermontFitness.org. Parents of eligible Vermont children will be notified by email and supplied a discount code for use when reserving a lesson at SkiVermont.com/Learn, while supplies last.

“Introducing young Vermonters to the state’s official winter sports, is not only an effort to encourage kids to be active in winter,” said Council member and Ski Vermont representative Sarah Wojcik. “It’s also a way to connect Vermont’s communities and pastimes and to encourage overall wellness within the state.”

The Governor’s Council is proud to work with Ski Vermont to provide these packages, and is a supporter of the national Learn to Ski and Snowboard efforts in January. Ski Vermont offers learn-to packages throughout the month of January for $29 for adults, kids and anyone in between. Learn more at SkiVermont.com.

Beginner packages are available one per person and holiday blackout dates apply during New Year’s and Martin Luther King Jr. weekends. Minimum age and occupancy of lessons vary by resort. Participating resorts are listed at SkiVermont.com/Learn.

In addition to this year’s Learn to Ski and Ride Month, Nordic skiing and snowshoeing are free at multiple locations during Winter Trails Day on Saturday, January 10. The inventory of snowshoes, skis and lesson space is limited. Contact participating ski areas to verify details and availability, and learn more at www.snowlink.com/wintertrails.aspx. Winter Trails Day is a national program endorsed by Ski Vermont and the Governor’s Council; it encourages children and adults to discover the great fitness and social benefits of these fun, easy-to-learn winter sports.

About: The Governor's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports is a physical activity promotion and advocacy group comprised of approximately 20 volunteers, appointed by the Governor and representing a broad spectrum of Vermonters. Its mission is to promote health and wellness through physical activity for all people living in Vermont at all fitness and ability levels. Please visit vermontfitness.org and Vermont Fitness and Sports on Facebook and @VTFitnessSports on Twitter.

 

MONTPELIER, Vt. 2/8/11- In the Green Mountains, it’s well known that our population of 626,000 Vermonters heartily greets droves of visitors in the winter months; some guests are witnessing snow for the first time while others have skied Vermont trails with their families for generations. Vermont skiing and riding generated over 4.1 million skier/rider visits in the 2009-10 season and in turn, provided for thousands of jobs. Here's a glimpse at the people who welcome you, live, work and thrive in Vermont.

Meet the Folks Who Make Stratton Mountain Run
…You can call them snow farmers, groomologists or Mountain Men, but those who ski and ride here might say that the ‘World’s Greatest Groomers’ work at Stratton. Our team has over 150 years of collective experience and knows the science behind managing the snow and rolling out the white carpet again and again…

Get Stowked at Stowe Mountain Resort
…Each year starting back in 2005, the talented and emerging filmmakers set out to depict what makes Stowe among the most special eastern mountain resorts in North America. Each film tells the stories of unique individuals who call Stowe either their home, or home away from home. Every person and story is filled with a sense of adventure and passion for the mountain lifestyle…

Shaping Smugglers’ Notch Resort’s Terrain Parks
…Terrain Park Manager Rick Witham’s involvement with events, the club, and his own family’s interest in snowboarding has given him a unique and broad perspective on the communities who enjoy Smugglers’ terrain parks…

Fifth Grade Passport

Count to 88. Easy, right? Especially if you’re a fifth grader. Well that’s the total number of free days on snow you’ll enjoy without spending a dime at Ski Vermont’s alpine resorts and Nordic ski areas if you’re a fifth grader armed with a Fifth Grade Passport in hand.

Ski Vermont believes that winter in Vermont is a way of life, an opportunity to get outdoors, to be healthy and active, and to share amazing experiences with friends and family. That philosophy has led Ski Vermont to develop the Fifth Grade Passport, a program that lets fifth graders ski and ride for free, and fall in love with the experience of sliding on snow, now in its 12th year of enriching families’ winters.

This season marks the second year in which the program will also benefit the agriculture community by donating proceeds to Keep Local Farms, learn more at www.keeplocalfarms.org.
