Ski Lift Ticket Deals and a Contest
Blog Reader Alert – Attention/Achtung/Attenzione/Faites Attention:
For those who cannot make it through an entire New England Outdoor Adventure post, first, I am sorry since I try my best to be engaging and make you want to read to the end. However, I also realize that things happen and sometimes you just need to stop and do something else. Or maybe you were doing something else already and started reading this blog and then realized you had to finish the other thing that you started. I understand. I do. If you think that might happen, scroll down to the bottom of this post first. You have the opportunity to win a very cool ski sign. I would not want you to miss out on the chance to win such a great prize because you are bored with me.
The Beginning of the Post, After the Alert Section
I don’t want to be that person who talks about skiing in mid-October, but I feel compelled to mention that now is the time to check out season pass deals and to make some decisions. Some pass deadlines have, well, passed, and with each coming week, you might end up paying a little bit more until you’ve done such poor planning that you find yourself at the ticket window on Dec. 20 paying full price holiday rates. I would not want you to do this since there are easy ways to avoid it – like buying your season pass now.
If you don’t want to commit to a full season at one resort, there are other options. One that I am very familiar with is the Ski Vermont 3 Pass ($125 for three one-day lift tickets at different resorts) or Ski Vermont 5 Pass ($200 for five one-day lift tickets at different resorts). This is a great deal with some flexibility and gives you the opportunity to sample many different areas. The pass has blackout dates during major holidays, but otherwise is valid anytime. They might sell out in mid-November. Call Ski Vermont at 802-223-2439 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for the application.
New Hampshire has some great options too – check out this page and buy up, because as I mentioned, these offers do sell out.
Another really, really, really (yes, it deserves three) is the Ski Maine Passbook. The tickets are transferable. For $580, you get 55 tickets. Um, hello!?!?!??
A Ski Sign Contest
Now, for the exciting contest I alluded to in the Blog Reader Alert section. You might not have your own ski house (or maybe you do) but I am going to help you at least try to get your own ski house sign. The Lincoln Sign Company in Lincoln, NH, less than one mile from Loon Mountain, is hosting a sign contest. To enter, check out the beautiful signs that JD and his gang make; then follow the directions and you (and a friend) may each win a sign. So, it’s not free skiing, but it is a free ski sign.
