January is Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month with Discover Michigan
During January, ski areas across the state teamed up with Michigan McDonald’s restaurants to offer an affordable introduction to the sport of skiing and snowboarding. The lesson covers basic maneuvering on skis or snowboards and includes stopping, turning, riding the lifts, and getting up from a fall.
Discover Michigan is a program that includes a beginner lesson, ski or snowboard rental equipment, and a beginner lift area ticket at an affordable price.
