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.

space is limited. Contact participating ski areas to verify details

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.
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…
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…
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,
