PERU– If ever there was a time to learn to ski or snowboard in the Northeast, that time is Sunday, March 9, when three New England resorts showcase for free their new Terrain Based Learning programs to first-time skiers and snowboarders. No small print. No hidden fees. Just register in advance, show up, get professionally fitted in free rental gear, and have access to instructors for 90 minutes at Jiminy Peak in Hancock, MA, Bromley Resort, and Cranmore Resort in North Conway, NH.

Terrain features such as rollers, half-pipes, and banks are carved into the surface to serve almost like training wheels to build confidence in sliding on snow, said Ben Wilcox, president and general manager of Cranmore Resort. “Once beginners learn the fundamentals, they progress to the rest of the mountain much faster.”

First-time skiers and snowboarders, ages 6 and up, must register in advance at their preferred resort, then upon arrival will receive complimentary equipment rental, a rental helmet, and a beginners lift ticket valid all day after the 10:30 am to noon instruction ($89 value).

They will also receive a discount on additional lessons, lift tickets, and rentals through the end of the 2013-14 winter season.

The offer is limited to the first 150 beginners at each resort. Some other restrictions apply. Terrain Based Learning instruction will continue to be available through the end of the 2013-14 ski season.
