Seriously...Okemo Mountain Resort
in Ludlow, Vermont is once again offering FREE
, no-strings-attached Learn to Snowboard lesson packages this season. The program began last season, and was such a success (over 1,600 people took advantage) that the resort has decided to bring it back for another season. Beginning Monday, December 1st
and running through Friday, December 19th
, new and beginner snowboarders ages 7 and up can sign up for a free level 1 or 2 beginner lesson. The lessons run at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., and include a free lower-mountain lift ticket, lesson, and beginner rental package (snowboard, boots and bindings). According to a resort spokesman, "Upon completion of the program, participants qualify for a free First Tracks Plus card, entitling them to a $10 savings on group lessons and rental equipment on weekends and holidays, and $20 savings on group lessons and rentals on non-holiday weekdays, all season long."
It's not often you see this type of offer from any business, let alone a business in the snow-industry. New East coast riders looking for some instruction should definitely take Okemo up on this offer, and veteran riders would be remiss if they didn't let their non-riding friends know about it ASAP!
