The Learn & Earn program won the NSAA Conversion Cup in 2018 for its success in introducing newcomers to skiing and snowboarding. The three-year program provides lessons, equipment and season passes at a great value. Since the program’s inception, it has introduced thousands of new skiers and snowboarders to the sport.
