Looking for  a weekend excursion out of the city? If you’ve always wanted to ski and snowboard, then you have the perfect excuse to skip town and partake in special deals for beginners at ski resorts around the state. Even if you’re a seasoned skier, there’s no better time to hit the slopes.

January is Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month and The Pennsylvania Ski Areas Association (SkiPA) is making it affordable for newbies to get out on the slopes for the first time with special discounts including the “First-Time Ski/Snowboard” package, which runs through the end of January.

The First-Time Ski/Snowboard package takes the guess work out of planning and makes it easy for beginners to hit the slopes for the first time. Available for $59, ski and snowboard newbies receive a beginner lift ticket, group lesson and complete rental equipment. Quantities are limited, so it’s recommended to sign up early.

At these resorts during Jan. 14 through Jan. 16, 2018 and Feb. 17 through Feb. 20, 2018, advanced reservations must be made and there will only be a group lesson at 1 p.m. To sign up, visit, http://www.skipa.com/deals/first-time-offer.
