LEARN TO SKI OR RIDE

Powderhorn Mountain Resort’s new “Learn to Ski or Snowboard Series” allows first-time skiers or riders the opportunity to slide Grand Mesa’s slopes three times for $149. That price includes full-day lessons, lift tickets and equipment for any three days of the season. The program spans all ages — 5 years old on up for ski lessons and 7 years old and up for snowboarding. Plus, after completion of all three lessons, the newly educated skier or boarder receives a non-transferable “Graduate Card,” which provides a 50-percent discount on all future lessons that season as well as lift tickets and gear rental.
