Michigan ski resorts and McDonald’s restaurants are once again offering Discover Michigan Skiing, an affordable introduction to the skiing and snowboarding.
The program has run every January for the past 15 years and includes a beginner lesson (covering basic maneuvering on skis or snowboards), ski or snowboard rental equipment and a beginner-area ski lift pass or cross-country trail pass. Twenty-four ski areas are offering the package January 5 through January 31, 2009.
The price for downhill or cross-country skiing is $30 for adults and $25 for children seven to 14 years old and the snowboard price is $40 for everyone 10 years and older. You’ll need a voucher that you can pick up at participating McDonald’s restaurants and also MSIA retail ski stores. If you can’t find one there, you can also click on the link above.
