Arizona Snowbowl Celebrates Learn to Ski Month with FREE Ski and Snowboard Packages


FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. – January is Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month across America,

and starting this Monday, Arizona Snowbowl will offer a limited number of FREE skiing

and snowboarding packages to make learning a winter sport easy and affordable.

“Arizona Snowbowl is the only ski area in our region and possibly in the country to offer

first-time skiers or snowboarders everything they need to learn a winter sport, including

a free lift ticket, a free lesson and free rentals,” said J.R. Murray, Snowbowl’s General

Manager. “There has never been a better time or a better place to learn than here, at

Arizona Snowbowl.”

Known for its superior teaching terrain, Arizona Snowbowl offers the largest beginner

ski terrain in the Southwest, including two chairlifts and two surface conveyors – all

located within the Hart Prairie Beginner Area and steps from the Hart Prairie Lodge. The

conveyors act like moving sidewalks, making it easy for first-timers to load and unload.

Snowbowl’s Learn to Ski and Snowboard package includes a lift ticket, full day rental

equipment and a two-hour lesson. Once the free packages have sold out, a limited

number of 50% off packages will also be available for $47.50. Packages are available

starting Monday, Jan. 5 through Saturday, Jan. 31, excluding Martin Luther King Jr.

Weekend, Jan. 17-19.

available. Since the program was launched two years ago, the free and discounted

packages have sold out every winter, Murray said.

Guests who enroll family or friends in the free program can also take advantage of

discounted lift tickets this month, too, available exclusively at
