Utah unleashes Lucky 13 deals for beginning snow enthusiasts

Posted By: The Ski Channel on December 28, 2009 12:07 pm

National Learn a Snow Sport Month takes place January, 2010 and Utah is among thirty-two states offering free or steeply discounted ski, snowboard, cross-country ski and snowshoe lessons throughout the entire month. As part of the initiative, the snow sports industry hopes to motivate youth and adults to be active in winter months when exercise is most difficult. Nearly one in ten of the world’s school children are overweight and the number of overweight adolescents in the U.S. has tripled in the past two decades.

To help combat obesity–and winter blahs, Utah is offering Lucky 13 deals throughout the state. The steals are as follows:
