Mount Snow & Peak Resorts Aim To Make Learning Fun, Affordable, and Convenient Across Northeast Resorts

Mount Snow, VTDec. 15, 2017 – Mount Snow is pleased to announce a brand new learning initiative that is both affordable and convenient for those looking to get into skiing and riding. The three-visit Peak Discovery Program, valid for ages 13 and older, is now available to purchase for $99 at all Northeast Peak Resorts, including Mount Snow, Vermont; Attitash, Wildcat & Crotched Mountains in New Hampshire; Hunter Mountain in New York; and Jack Frost Big Boulder in Pennsylvania. 

The Peak Discovery Program is different from many other learning programs in that it provides participating guests the opportunity to learn a new sport with the additional benefit of taking their lessons at multiple resort locations. For example, a guest could have their first two lessons at Mount Snow, and then follow up with a lesson at Hunter Mountain the following weekend. 

“Our award-winning learning experience coupled with our convenient locations across multiple metropolitan areas offers a unique opportunity for the new skier/snowboarder. Our goal is to introduce people to a sport that they and their families can enjoy for a lifetime”, stated Russ Coloton, GM & VP of Hunter Mountain who spearheaded the program.

For only $99 a Discovery Program participant will be given a membership card that affords them a group lesson, equipment rentals and helmet as well as a lift ticket for three (3) visits at any of the participating resorts. 

“I’m really excited about this program,” stated Erik Barnes, GM & VP at Mount Snow, as well as an examiner for the Professional Ski Instructors of America (PSIA) for over 17 years. “Each of our resorts has a staff of dedicated instructors who introduce thousands of guests to the sport each year. Their goal is to make sure that everyone has fun while learning to ski and ride.”

Once a guest graduates from the three-lesson program they will have an opportunity to add three additional visits to their card for just $99, allowing them to continue exploring.

“We want to remove as many barriers as possible to those wishing to try our sport,” added Coloton.  “That includes not only the cost, but accessibility and convenience too!” 

The program is now available for purchase on all Peak Resorts websites and at the resorts themselves for $99 until December 24, 2017.  After that prices increase to $139.
