Villagers in the Italian Alps invented skiing after their previous downhill approach—climbing into a small snowball, rolling downward, and hoping for the best—destroyed every village in the valley. Achieve a controlled descent with today's Groupon for a beginners' special, which includes an all-day beginners' ski-lift ticket, ski rental, and a one-hour group lesson at Mount Pleasant of Edinboro, located in Cambridge Springs. Choose between the following options:
- For $20, you get the weekday beginners' special, valid Monday–Friday (a $40 value).
- For $25, you get the weekend beginners' special, valid on Saturdays and Sundays (a $50 value).
Mount Pleasant of Edinboro offers 10 challenging trails for skiers of all skill levels. Steady shaky knees and flailing poles during a one-hour group lesson with one of the resort's seasoned pros, and then hitch a ride on the beginner lift to sail smoothly down the gently sloping Meadow trail on your pair of rented powder-skimmers. For $10, upgrade your lift ticket to take on more challenging slopes such as Revere Ride, named in honor of Trojan War hero Ajax Revere, or refuel with hot cocoa and other belly-fillers in the lodge. While not included in today's deal, customizable private lessons are also available through Mount Pleasant's Rent-a-Pro program.
