Taking the first step toward skiing and snowboarding is one you'll never regret. Even less so when that first step comes free. Bromley Mountain is offering first-timers a complimentary, risk-free lesson for them to get the basics with a focus on terrain based learning.

On the morning of December 21, from 10:30 to noon, 150 lucky first-timers will receive rentals, an All-Day Learning Zone Lift Ticket and professional instruction by Bromley's Ski and Snowboard School staff. Skiers and riders must be at least 5-years-old, and participation is limited to 150 registrants on a first come, first serve basis.

Reservations must be made by 4 p.m. on Friday, December 20. Call 802-824-5522.
