This New Year, set one resolution you can easily achieve: learn a new sport. Learning to ski or snowboard is easier than ever during January Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month.

Vermont ski areas are offering a month-long special for $29 that includes lift ticket, lesson and rentals. Across the Connecticut River, New Hampshire ski areas are teaming up to offer a week of free beginner packages to first-time skiers and riders. And if you've already tried the sport, but can't decide where to call your home mountain, the Catskills Winter Sampler can give you a taste of four of New York's finest.
