Governor Kathy Hochul announced the latest incentive for New Yorkers, and if you ski, this may just provide you with some inspiration.

The new 'Ski for Free' Covid-19 vaccine sweepstakes is now open for children ages 5 to 11 and booster shot recipients.  The sweepstakes will be running for six weeks, with the intent to be to increase booster vaccination rates among children ages 5-11. If you meet the state's eligibility requirements, you will be able to enter a random drawing for free lift tickets to participating mountains and ski resorts in either the Western or Eastern regions of the state, thanks to Ski Areas of New York, and the Olympic Regional Development Authority. You can enter at any time to win here.

Governor Hochul said;

The 'Ski for Free' sweepstakes for children and booster recipients allows New Yorkers to take full advantage of our state's incredible ski areas while at the same time boosting our vaccination numbers to fight the winter surge.

The following are the participating mountains/resorts in the western region of New York State; Holiday Valley, Bristol, Woods Valley, Greek Peak, Swain Resort, and Four Seasons Ski Center.
