(Squaw Valley USA) Introduce a friend to skiing or snowboarding at Squaw Valley USA this spring, and receive a half-price lift ticket during Squaw Valley USA’s new Fun In The Sun Days taking place throughout March and April 2003.

Spring is the best time to share the fun of skiing or snowboarding and Squaw Valley USA is encouraging longtime skiers and snowboarders to introduce a friend to the sport. Every day in March, excluding Saturdays, and seven days a week in April, any guest who brings a friend that purchases a regular price adult First Time Skier or Snowboarder package (package includes equipment rental, a beginner lift ticket, and an introductory lesson) may purchase a half price ($29) adult all day lift ticket for the same day. In addition, participating first timers receive two coupons good for $12 off their next two lessons (coupons valid through December 19, 2003).

Squaw Valley USA offers one of the longest ski seasons in the region with superb spring conditions, great weather, and world-class ski instruction, making it the ideal place to try skiing or snowboarding for the first time. The First Timer’s package offers a relaxed two-hour group lesson in which guests receive personal instruction in the basics of skiing or snowboarding. Following the first lesson, participants may perfect their new skills as they explore Squaw Valley’s expansive upper mountain beginner terrain via three beginner lifts or upgrade to the next lesson level. Each participant also receives (via mail) two vouchers valid for $12 off their next two lessons at Squaw Valley USA, making it easier than ever to start the journey toward a lifetime of fun on the snow. 

This special offer is available at the Squaw Valley Ski & Snowboard School office adjacent to the main ticket portals at the base of the mountain. Both parties (first timer and other adult) must be present at time of purchase. The half price lift ticket is non-transferable and valid only on the day of purchase.
