Along with National Oatmeal, Bath Safety and Braille Literacy month, January is National Learn to Ski & Snowboard month. To celebrate, Utah is joining 200 resorts nationwide to promote an active winter lifestyle. These learn-to-ski or board offers last through January and are for first time skiers or snowboarders from Utah. Passes may have restrictions or extra perks. Look for recent renovations, snow conditions, base snow inches, lift opens, etc. when making your choice. Some passes have very strict guidelines, check-ins and hoops to jump through. Not all require Utah residency, and most highly recommend reserving your space asap. Alta
