Mountain Creek will be offering two-for-one ski and snowboard lift/lesson/rental packages midweek throughout the month of January, excluding holiday periods, for just $99. So what are you waiting for? Grab a buddy and learn to ski or ride for a steal of a deal.

Having just partnered up with Burton Snowboards on a new teaching program for beginners, “Mountain Creek is poised to evolve the way new riders learn how to snowboard," said Burton's Global Resort Director Jeff Boliba.

With these new programs, titled Experience Snowboarding & Go Skiing, the standard ‘bunny slope’ has been replaced with feature-focused terrain developed by Mountain Creek, Burton and Snow Park Technologies. By incorporating terrain assisted learning techniques that utilize snow banks, small rolling bumps and even a miniature half pipe (similar to a gently sloping gully), beginners will learn proper body positioning and progress their skills in an easier fashion than they would on a traditional slope.

“Snowboarding and skiing aren’t inherently hard to learn, but what can make them difficult is that people learn them the wrong way. This new program we’re doing with Burton will allow us to share our passion for snow sports and the world class features we have here at Mountain Creek in a way that has never been done before,” said Mountain Creek General Manager and VP Joe Hession.

Pair that with the “carry free” rental center, which transports the equipment to the slopes for the user, it's never been easier for first timers and parents with multiple children to make their way onto the snow. To make the beginner’s experience even more enjoyable, lessons begin when the participant arrives rather than at a predetermined time, helping to alleviate the stress and rush beginners may feel when trying to make it to the slopes for the first time.

"With the resort's new interactive rental shop design and flow, a new lodge that encourages excitement of the sport and a terrain-based teaching system that speeds up the learning process, guests will engage more in the shop and out on-snow. Combine this with qualified snowboard instruction and the best learning specific snowboard gear in the world, experiencing snowboarding at Mountain Creek will be faster and easier then ever,” said Boliba.
