COPPER MOUNTAIN, Colo. Just in time for winter season, Copper Mountain complements its beginner terrain-based teaching offerings with the launch of Ski and Ride School University. Ski and Ride U offers newbies a hassle-free way to give skiing or snowboarding a try, and provides plenty of incentive to stay with the sport.

For $199 the package includes: three ski or snowboard lessons, lift tickets, equipment rentals, close-in parking, and lunch. Upon graduation and completion of the third lesson, Copper will toss in a free season pass so guests can continue to progress for remainder of the 2014/2015 winter season. Additionally after graduation, guests will also receive 50 percent off their 2015/2016 Copper Mountain Season Pass.

While enrolled in Ski and Ride School U, guests will take advantage of Copper’s newly-created terrain-based teaching area located in Green Acres, a small learning area between Center and East Village. This non-intimidating area highlights entry-level man made features, such as banked turns and a mild mini-pipe, teamed with progressive teaching principles allowing beginners to explore various snow sliding sensations while the mountain and gravity do all the work.

Guests must be 16 years or older and completely new to the sports of skiing or snowboarding to participate and the third lesson must be completed on or before April 5, 2015 to be eligible for the complimentary 2014/2015 Copper Mountain Season Pass and discounted 2015/2016 season pass. Ski and Ride U can be purchased in person at the Guest Services or Mountain Sport Sales Center located in the Copper One Building in Center Village.
