Whether your resolution was to hit the slopes for the first time in 2014, to be more adventurous, or to get super fit, it turns out January is the perfect month to do it.

Why? An array of partners from the winter sports industry have teamed up to present “Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month,” 31 days of deals, lessons, tips, and promotions meant to encourage more people (like the boutique-fitness obsessed) to embrace cold-weather workouts.

More than 300 resorts across the country are participating—from free beginner lessons in New Hampshire during the second week of January to $35 rental, lift, and lesson packages at New York destinations.

And if you’re a downhill pro, you can bring newbie friends and be entered to win prizes. Just try not to leave them behind as soon as the powder beckons. —Lisa Elaine Held
