Listen, the Super Bowl (February 3, 2013) doesn’t even start until the evening which leaves plenty of time to gorge on chicken wings, vomit them back up, and then eat some more. It’s the 49ers against the Ravens, a game so boring that I almost fell asleep writing it, which is why I’ll be shredding that day.

And check this out, Liftopia is taking advantage of the empty slopes to offer a grip of discounted tickets. Listen to some of these samples:

Loveland, Colorado @ $29.99
Bolton Valley, VT @ $9.99

Platekill, NY @ $16.99
Shanty Creek, MI @ $28.00
Arizona Snowbowl, AZ @ $25.99

And that’s just to start. Click on over to Liftopia to check out dozens of Super Bowl steals on lift tickets.

$999 Alaska Heli-Skiing Trip and Other Ski Deals From Costco http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/2011/01/15/999-alaska-heli-skiing-trip-and-other-ski-deals-from-costco/ http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/2011/01/15/999-alaska-heli-skiing-trip-and-other-ski-deals-from-costco/#respond Sun, 16 Jan 2011 01:18:33 +0000 http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/?p=5239

About this time of year, we like to check with megastore Costco to see what oversized lift ticket deals they may have. In past seasons, they have offered multi-day discounts and even a season pass.

But a heli-skiing ticket? That’s freakin’ awesome. For $999, you get a punch card that lets you get 25,000 vertical feet at Valdez Heli-Camps. This is a three-day trip with deluxe lodging and airfare is NOT included. Double up to 50,000 vert and five days for $1,999.

There’s a few other deals like $50 tickets to June ($199 4-Pack) and $50 Big White/Silver Star ($99 2-Pack). These deals change so if you’re interested scoop one up. And no, we don’t get any kickbacks from Costco. Just trying to help everyone save money!

Free Skier Card Gets Discounts in Quebec and Vermont http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/2011/01/13/free-skier-card-gets-discounts-in-quebec-and-vermont/ http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/2011/01/13/free-skier-card-gets-discounts-in-quebec-and-vermont/#respond Thu, 13 Jan 2011 22:18:51 +0000 http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/?p=5245
I haven’t covered many skier discount cards this year. Frankly, there’s just too many — almost every ski area has one by now. That doesn’t mean that they aren’t a good value. Here’s one from Sutton in Quebec which saves you 10%-40% at Sutton, Owl’s Head, and Burke in Vermont.

The part that caught my eye was the Carte Blanche card is free which is the price that always makes me happy. Using the card gets you a greater discount on each visit until your fifth, at which point you’ll get a free ticket. As always, read through the fine print here.

The first time you use your card at one of the participating ski stations, you will receive a 10% discount off the regular price Adult and Student full day lift ticket and the rebates get bigger every time you use the card, up to a 40% discount! Every fifth visit we will give you a FREE full day lift ticket at the mountain of your choice.

2011 Ski Free Deals from Shell – Twofer Vouchers @ 60+ Ski Areas http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/2011/01/03/ski-free-deals-from-shell-twofer-vouchers-60-ski-areas/ http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/2011/01/03/ski-free-deals-from-shell-twofer-vouchers-60-ski-areas/#comments Tue, 04 Jan 2011 05:50:51 +0000 http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/?p=5195

The Deal: Fuel up your whip with 10 gallons or more of gasoline at participating Shell stations and receive a BOGO (buy one, get one free) voucher good at a mess of resorts.

The Mountains: See list below. Click on the links to see blackout dates and days that voucher is valid.

The Dates: The SKI FREE® offer is valid January 3 thru April 17, 2011 or earlier if ski area closes for season. Read offers closely for specific resort restrictions.

More Info: Ski Free Deals

Our Take: We’ve been using this deal faithfully for years. Who doesn’t like 1/2 off tickets? Make sure to check with the gas station before you fuel up or consult this handy list. Tip: Participating stations usually have an advertisement over the pump. The closer you get to the mountain, the easier it will be to find the voucher.

43 Lift Tickets With Purchase of Descente Jacket http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/2010/11/05/43-lift-tickets-with-purchase-of-descente-jacket/ http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/2010/11/05/43-lift-tickets-with-purchase-of-descente-jacket/#comments Sat, 06 Nov 2010 04:51:10 +0000 http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/?p=4891

This is a annual deal that has been happening for years, but we only found out about last season. It’s really simple. You buy a 2011 Descente Passport Jacket and get 43 vouchers for ski areas across North America (the full list is below).

This was our number one deal from last season. I picked up a solid black coat for around $200 at a ski shop sale and ended up riding thirteen resorts. That works out to around $15 ticket. The coat itself ended up being a surprise as I wasn’t expecting much out of it and it turned out to be very high quality, super waterproof, and a lovely powderskirt that didn’t ride up on me in deep powder.

For all you ski bums stuck in one place, is the coat a great deal? Depends on where you live or are planning a trip. The best combo is for Summit County which has vouchers for A-Basin, Copper, and Vail.
