Shanty Creek has teamed up with Michigan McDonald’s restaurants to offer a popular and very affordable introduction to the sport of skiing and snowboarding, called Discover Michigan Skiing.
The program, which has run every January for the past 20 years, includes: a beginner lesson, ski or snowboard rental equipment and a beginner-area ski lift pass or cross-country trail pass. Twenty-three ski facilities are offering the package, which will be honored from January 1 through January 31, 2017.
The prices for the Discover Michigan Skiing program are: $20 for Discover Michigan Cross-Country Skiing; $35 for Discover Michigan Downhill Skiing; and $35 for Discover Michigan Snowboarding. The program is open to everyone 7 years and older.
The lesson normally covers basic maneuvering on skis or snowboards, including stopping, turning, riding the lifts, and getting up from a fall. Discover Michigan Skiing is part of the national “Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month” campaign, which is designed to provide a way for people all across the country to learn to ski or snowboard affordably and carries the slogan, “Humans were never meant to hibernate.”
