Winter can be a really tough to get out there with the kiddos. This year, we’re embracing the cold (sort of) by going skiing for the first time in a few weeks and have been loving the options from the Pennsylvania Ski Areas Association (SkiPA) with their “First-Time Ski/Snowboard” package.
A fun way to stay active and enjoy some quality time outdoors, the package, available for $59, includes a beginner lift ticket, group lesson and complete rental equipment. Vouchers can be used anytime, including weekends and holidays (except for Hidden Valley, Laurel Mountain & Seven Springs. At these resorts during Dec. 24. 2017 – Jan. 2, 2018; Jan. 14 through Jan. 16, 2018 and Feb. 17 through Feb. 20, 2018, advanced reservations must be made and there will only be a group lesson at 1 p.m.).
