Be A Hero…Bring a Friend Challenge at Holiday Valley.  Do you remember who introduced you to skiing and riding? Was it a friend, family member or maybe a teacher? Learning to ski and ride is an adventure that you can enjoy for a lifetime … but do you think you would have learned if you didn’t have a pal to give you that little nudge?


Here is your chance to pay it forward by sharing YOUR love of skiing and riding with a friend, family member or co-worker with the Bring a Friend Challenge at Holiday Valley. When you bring a new skier or rider who purchases a learn to ski or snowboard package, you will receive a 50% discount coupon for an adult 8 hour all area lift ticket for your next visit to Holiday Valley. Plus if you hold on to your friend’s receipt for their Learn to Ski or Ride lesson and visit you can enter the National Bring a Friend challenge where you can enter to win really great prizes from Head, Rossignol, Dynastar/ Lange, Polarmax, Seirus, Transpack, Never Summer, Krimson Klover and Zeal Optics. The Challenge runs from January 5 – February 18, 2018. Consumers must be at least 13 years old to qualify.


Helpful Tips for First Timers - Dress in warm, loose fitting layers. Wear a waterproof outer layer on the top and the bottom, warm gloves or mittens and a hat. Avoid wearing blue jeans (unless you like feeling soggy) and don't forget your long johns, sunscreen and sunglasses or goggles to protect your eyes. Bring a change of socks and some comfortable clothes for after skiing. If you put on dry socks before you put on your ski boots, your feet will stay much warmer.  • Plan to rent skis, boots and poles (or snowboard and boots) the first few times out. We have equipment specially designed for beginners, and our lift and lesson packages make learning affordable. You'll need to leave a credit card or ID in the rental shop while you're out skiing. • Always take a beginner lesson whether you are skiing or snowboarding. Do yourself a favor and let our instructors introduce you to the sport. They make learning to ski or snowboard fun from the start! Even if your (pick one) boyfriend, girlfriend, uncle, cousin, mother-in-law is an awesome skier or rider, they probably don't know all of the little tips and tricks of teaching someone the sport. You have a much better chance of enjoying skiing or snowboarding if you take a lesson with a pro. Look for the green dots that direct you to the new Creekside lodge, located next to the Holiday Valley Lodge. You can purchase your Learn-to-Ski or Learn-to-Snowboard package there, rent beginner's equipment, plus get all of your questions answered.  • Plan to arrive at least one hour before you want your lesson to begin so you have time to sign up, get your equipment and soak up the excitement of the resort! Lessons are at 10:30 AM and 1:30 PM during the day or 5:30, 6:30 and 7:30 during the evening. For more information visit
