Each winter, the Vermont Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports works with Ski Vermont to provide Vermont youth with affordable opportunities to get out on the slopes of their home mountains. Thanks to this partnership, 125 Vermont children will get to experience three full days on the mountain with lessons, rentals and lift tickets for just $49 this season.
The Ski Vermont Take 3 Beginner Package comprises three beginner lift tickets, three equipment rental packages and three beginner group lessons. This package is normally available for the affordable price of $129. During the month of January, the Vermont Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports subsidizes 125 of these packages, which brings the cost down to $49 per eligible child.
Here is a link to a survey used to determine eligibility for Vermont children within the age ranges specified by participating ski areas. Applicants who complete and submit the survey and whose child or children are deemed eligible will then be sent a discount code to purchase a Take 3 Beginner Package for $49.
Please note: Families with multiple children must order each child's package separately in order to receive the discount on each. All participating children must be at least five years old. Ski areas also have specific age parameters, which can be viewed here: http://skivermont.com/take-3. Participating resorts include Bolton Valley, Burke Mountain, Jay Peak Resort, Killington Resort, Magic Mountain, Mount Snow Resort, Pico Mountain, Smugglers' Notch Resort, Stratton Mountain Resort and Sugarbush Resort.
These discounted packages are available only to customers with eligible children, while supplies last. Other restrictions apply as dictated by each individual ski area. Please visit the Take 3 program page for more information:
