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.

How To Score on Valentine’s Day http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/2012/02/09/how-to-score-on-valentines-day/ http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/2012/02/09/how-to-score-on-valentines-day/#respond Fri, 10 Feb 2012 06:11:22 +0000 http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/?p=5863

Romance is in the air at ski areas this Valentine's Day.

Valentine’s Day is a big deal here in the mountains. It reminds us of our loved ones and…and…who am I kidding? It takes place on a random Tuesday, which is essentially a Saturday for ski bums. Not to mention, there’s like one girl for every eight guys so most of the time you can just ignore it.

That still doesn’t mean that ski areas are going to forget about it. We’ve rustled up a few deals for this year’s Cupid bacchanalia and we’ve broken it down for all stages of a relationship.

For Those Of You In The Hunt
Bear Creek Mountain, PA 

There’s no better place in the world to throw game at a girl than on a chairlift. She literally can’t escape unless a sixty foot free fall was her Valentine’s Day wish. Here’s hoping that Bear Mountain’s Ski Lift of Love comes out injury free. It takes place on Valentine’s Day from 6 to 10pm and features two “singles” lines — one for men and one for women. You still have to pay for a lift ticket, but isn’t that a small price to meet the love of your life?

For Those of You Dating
Mad River Glen, VT

Let your inner exhibitionist out at Mad River Glen. When your and your someone special kiss in front of the counter guy, lift tickets are only $14. You only have to kiss. Don’t let them talk into anything else freaky.

For Those Of You Ready to Take the Plunge
Loveland, CO

On the opposite end of the spectrum from singledom is Loveland’s 21st Annual Mountaintop Matrimony in which couples get married in a mass wedding on the slopes. Is it worth it for the 2 for 1 lift ticket that couples receive? I’ll leave it up to you.

For Those of You That Are Hopeless
Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows, CA

If you don’t have a honey to smooch, there’s still a chance of scoring a sweet $14 ticket through LiftTickets.com. Act fast though because when this deal is done, you’ll have no cheap tickets and no girlfriend. Bummer, dude.

More Info: The Point Independent Radio

Our Take: This annual deal has always been a stalwart when it comes to saving cash in New England. We are, of course, curious about these new-this-year “mystery areas”. Should be fun.

Locals Deals @ Sugarloaf and Sunday River This Week http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/2011/12/04/locals-deals-sugarloaf-and-sunday-river-this-week/ http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/2011/12/04/locals-deals-sugarloaf-and-sunday-river-this-week/#comments Sun, 04 Dec 2011 17:46:16 +0000 http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/?p=5394 It’s Locals Week at Sugarloaf in Maine from December 5th thru December 9, 2011. What does that mean? How about free lift tickets for local residents? Check. Free ski rentals? Check.

Locals Week 12/5/11 – 12/9/11
Sugarloaf is Maine’s mountain and we’re proving it by offering FREE lift tickets and rentals for local residents all week long from the following towns: Carrabassett Valley, Farmington, Freeman, Kingfield, New Portland, New Vineyard, Phillips, Rangeley, Stratton, Eustis, and Strong. Valid ID required as proof of residency.

Not from the above towns, but still boast a Maine driver’s license? Then hold out until Sunday, December 11th, for “Maine Day”  and the rare $29 weekend lift ticket.

Maine Ski Day presented by The Bank of Maine 12/11/11
Sugarloaf  and Sunday River have proudly partnered with The Bank of Maine to offer a day of skiing and learning to all Maine residents.  The Maine Ski Day, on December 11, will give Maine residents access to discounted tickets, rentals and learn to ski or ride packages.  Just show proof of Maine residency at the ticket window and receive a $29 ticket, $20 rental or a $39 learn to ski or ride package (includes ticket, equipment rental and lesson (lesson for ages 7+)).  It’s winter in Maine – get out and enjoy it!

Ski for Free at Loveland…All You Have to Do is Get Married http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/2011/02/13/ski-for-free-at-loveland-all-you-have-to-do-is-get-married/ http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/2011/02/13/ski-for-free-at-loveland-all-you-have-to-do-is-get-married/#respond Mon, 14 Feb 2011 01:30:05 +0000 http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/?p=5289 The Mountaintop Matrimony is an annual Valentine’s Day tradition at Loveland Pass, Colorado. Get dressed in your wedding appropriate attire, pick a mate for the rest of your life, and ride February 14th with a 2 for 1 coupon.

From the Loveland website:

The ceremony is a “mass wedding” done for all couples at the same time and lasts approximately 30 minutes. At the conclusion of the ceremony, all participants and guests will ski or snowboard down the mountain for a casual after party with cake, music and prizes. The runs leading back to the base area from this point are beginner and intermediate. The after party will start at 1:30pm at the base of Loveland Basin.

Guests to the wedding still have to pay the $59 daily lift ticket price. For those of you looking for a lot less commitment, head to Mad River Glen, Vermont where all you have to do is kiss your honey at the ticket booth window and each of you get $14 tickets. Wait, cheap tickets and I don’t have to get married. Phew.

$17 Lift Tickets/$17 St. Patty’s Lodging @ Waterville Valley http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/2011/01/31/17-lift-tickets17-st-pattys-lodging-waterville-valley/ http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/2011/01/31/17-lift-tickets17-st-pattys-lodging-waterville-valley/#comments Mon, 31 Jan 2011 23:01:26 +0000 http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/?p=5216 We see lots of St. Patrick’s Day deals, but this one may be the best of the best. Not only does Waterville Valley, New Hampshire hook you up with a customary $17 lift ticket, they also make sure you don’t have to drive home with $17 lodging. The fine print says that this price is based on quad occupancy so in my limited understanding of lodging rules means you have get at least three friends to go with you.

Shouldn’t be a problem unless you were planning on celebrating March 17th alone…

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.
