Beginner skiers and snowboarders, young and old, can get on the slopes this year with the help of Ski Vermont’s learn-to-turn initiatives. Not only is Vermont the #1 state in the East for skiing and snowboarding but it is also home to some of the best beginner terrain and world class ski and snowboard schools, all of which are accessible through Ski Vermont’s beginner programs and packages below. 

“It’s important for us to show people that taking up skiing and snowboarding is not only easy and fun, but it can be done at any age,” says Sarah Wojcik, Director of Marketing and Communications at Ski Vermont. “We work with Vermont resorts to provide the best beginner package offerings so that the person getting out on the slopes for that first lesson, will want to come back again and again. Not to mention, all of Ski Vermont’s programs come with great savings and incentives.”

Ski Vermont’s Learn-to-Turn Programs:

Take 3 Pass
The Take 3 Pass allows beginner skiers and snowboarders to get out on Vermont’s mountains for three days for only $129. Each day includes gear rentals, professional beginner lessons and beginner lift tickets. Purchasers can choose to redeem the three days at three separate resorts or at the same resort. Each person who buys a Take 3 Pass will be entered to win one of ten beginner ski and snowboard packages from Rossignol skis or Burton snowboards at the end of the season.

Bring-A-Friend Vermont
Ski Vermont’s Bring-a-Friend program is for the winter enthusiasts out there who want to introduce a friend or family member to the sport of skiing or snowboarding. This year, those who participate in the program and purchase the Take 3 Pass will be rewarded with two lift tickets and the chance to win the grand prize two-night getaway. To be eligible for the prizes, participants must show proof of purchase of the Take 3 Pass and send a picture of them on the slopes to Ski Vermont.

Fifth Grade Passport
In its 17th year, Ski Vermont’s Fifth Grade Passport program allows children to ski and snowboard up to 88 times a season for just $11.  The passport helps children to develop healthy active habits and introduces them to sports that can span their lifetime. This year, the proceeds from the passport will go to the Working Lands Enterprise Initiative. To learn more about the Fifth Grade Passport and the rules and regulations go to
