January is National Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month, and to honor the holiday, Las Vegas Ski & Snowboard Resort is offering a killer package for first timers to hit the slopes for cheap. Their “Get Started Package” costs just $199 and it includes four days of lift tickets, four days of ski or snowboard equipment rentals and four sessions of group lessons.

They are guaranteeing participants will get hooked to the sport, so at the completion of the four lessons, the beginner skiers and snowboarders walk away with an unrestricted 2012/2013 seasons pass good for the remainder of the winter, as well as a 50-percent off voucher toward a 2013/2014 seasons pass for next season. This is a great way to introduce friends and family skiing and boarding in a comfortable atmosphere and at an appropriate pace.

The deal can be purchased now until Jan. 31, 2013, and the days can be redeemed at any time during this winter season. The days don't need to be used consecutively.

This package is strictly for beginners who are 13 years or older, and the package and season pass are non-transferable.
