Among the special offers being featured in New Hampshire is Learn to Ski or Ride Free Week from Jan. 4 to 10. During this week, 14 N.H. ski areas will be offering a limited number of free learn to ski or snowboard packages. These packages include equipment rentals, a beginner lesson and beginner lift ticket to those who register in advance. Participants must visit www.SkiNH.com/LASSM to register and download a Learn to Ski or Ride Free Coupon; they then contact one of the 14 participating areas to make a reservation for a specific day that week.

Every day of the ski season, New Hampshire's ski areas already offer specially-designed learn to ski and ride programs to introduce new people to the sport. In addition to these learn to ski and ride packages, there will be many other special programs offered during January that normally are not available.

Among these offerings, guests will find savings on lift tickets for those who bring a friend to try the sport, special pricing on learn to ski or ride packages, and follow-up rewards for first timers who choose to hit the slopes or trails again. Guests can visit SkiNH.com's Learn a Snow Sport Month page for full details and offers at www.SkiNH.com/LASSM.

Visitors to SkiNH.com can also enter to win a learn to ski or snowboard getaway for two. The grand prize includes two days of beginner lessons at Wildcat Mountain and overnight accommodations at the Eagle Mountain House in Jackson. Second place prizes include learn to ski or snowboard packages from Pats Peak and Cranmore. The contest ends on Jan. 31 and winners will be notified the first week of February.

Nationally the program is being promoted by Glen Plake, Learn a Snow Sport Month's official spokesperson. Plake, with his infamous Mohawk, is one of the world's most recognized skiers and ambassadors of the sport. A feature will air on NBC's Today Show on Jan. 4 in which Today Show personality Hoda Kotb gives the sport a try for the first time with help from Plake himself.
