Terrain features such as rollers, half-pipes, and banks are carved into the surface to serve almost like training wheels to build confidence in sliding on snow, said Ben Wilcox, president and general manager of Cranmore Resort. “Once beginners learn the fundamentals, they progress to the rest of the mountain much faster.”
First-time skiers and snowboarders, ages 6 and up, must register in advance at their preferred resort, then upon arrival will receive complimentary equipment rental, a rental helmet, and a beginners lift ticket valid all day after the 10:30 am to noon instruction ($89 value).
They will also receive a discount on additional lessons, lift tickets, and rentals through the end of the 2013-14 winter season.
The offer is limited to the first 150 beginners at each resort. Some other restrictions apply. Terrain Based Learning instruction will continue to be available through the end of the 2013-14 ski season.
