Ski Butternut Offering $10 Package Deal for First-timers on Jan. 11
GREAT BARRINGTON — Friday, Jan. 11 is National Learn to Ski and Snowboard Day. Since 2009, more than 1 million children and adults in more than 30 states have participated in this initiative, and Ski Butternut is a host this year.
By offering an all-inclusive package on rental, lesson, and lift tickets on Jan. 11, Ski Butternut makes it affordable and easy to get started skiing or snowboarding. That day, anyone age 4 and up can purchase a $10 package which includes a beginner-area lift ticket, first-timer 90-minute group lesson, and rental equipment (skis or snowboard) to use for the day. This is a savings of $65 off the regular first-timer package price sold throughout the winter season.
“By supporting this great initiative on January 11, we hope people of all ages will come share our passion for skiing and riding,” said Dillon Mahon, director of Marketing for Ski Butternut. “Our aim is to provide a fun and easy experience to people so that they become life-long winter sports enthusiasts.”
Call (413) 528-2000, ext. 111 for more information, or go to Ski Butternut dressed warm and ready to learn. Upon arrival, report to the rental building to purchase the $10 package and be issued ski or snowboard equipment. Ski Butternut’s operating hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Fridays, and group lessons will be offered at 9:30 a.m., 10:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m., and 2 p.m.
