PICKS OF THE WEEK
Tuesday, Feb 10 @ Attitash, NH: A typical deal usually has a hook. This one has zero explantion for $35 tickets all ages. We’re not complaining.

Monday, Feb 15 @ Winter Park & Copper, CO: According to the site, the Phillips 66 Buy One, Get One Free is valid today. We’re not sure if you believe that.
Tue-Thu, Feb 16-18 @ Killington, VT: The most irritating deal we found this week. Buy a ticket on 2/9 for $50 or on 2/10 for $55 or on 2/11 for $60 and go skiing 2/16-20. Makes sense, right?
