Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows announced a new daily $69 learn to ski and ride package in honor of National Learn to Ski and Ride Month. Starting this January 11, beginner skiers and riders (ages 13+) can get a lift ticket, rental package and full day lesson for just $69 (normally $159, or $149 if purchased in advance). The $69 learn to ski and ride package is available daily through January 31, 2012 and can be purchased in the Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows rental shops.

The sunny blue skies and immaculate grooming make for ideal conditions for first time skiers and riders – making this January the perfect time to try a new sport at an incredible price.

In addition to the daily $69 learn to ski and ride package this month, Squaw and Alpine Meadows are offering a special $39 learn to ski and ride package on Sunday, January 29, including a half-day lesson (10 a.m.- 1 p.m.), beginner lift ticket and equipment rentals.
