January is national Learn to Ski & Snowboard Month, and Utah's resorts are head over heels into it. They all participate in a big way. Many resorts offer the whole package -- lift, lesson and equipment -- for $45. There are variations, so find the deal works best for you.

Here's the link. Check out the details for yourself.

For example:

At Alta, you can do the program for 4 different days for $45 during the season and earn a Copper card for discounts at the completion of 4 days. Or, you can do just one day. A beginner lift ticket is additional.

For $45, Brighton offers a 2 hour morning or afternoon lesson, an all day lift ticket, and all day equipment rental.

Canyons has an all day lesson, lift ticket and rental equipment for $45.

Deer Valley's $45 learn to ski program is offered on January 31.

Park City Mountain Resort offers beginner ski or snowboard lessons for $45.

Powder Mountain offers the lift, lesson and rental package for $45 -- but you must mention Learn to Ski & Ride Month when you make a reservation.

Snowbasin offers the lift, lesson and rental package from January 4 - 16.

At Snowbird, request the program when you register. You'll earn a Learners Permit plus additional lessons or ski days at half price. 

Solitude offers the beginner package in the afternoons.
