Most Mountains for the Least Dollars http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/2008/12/31/731/ http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/2008/12/31/731/#respond Wed, 31 Dec 2008 20:41:19 +0000 http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/?p=731 If you’re staying at a resort for more than a few days, it’s a good idea to look into their discount card program. Most ski hills have some sort of deal, like the X2 Card from Stratton.  It costs $79, gets you one free day, and then $30 off midweek tickets.  Consider that a one day ticket costs $79 and it’s a no brainer.

But our favorite discount cards are the ones that work at multiple resorts.  Here are five deals that may have slipped under your radar.  They give you free or discounted lift tickets, lodging deals, and free tune-ups.  As always, it’s a good idea to doublecheck our findings — It’s New Year’s Eve and we started our celebration a little early.   

The Ride and Ski New England Card
This card benefits the Childern’s Hospital in Dartmouth.  It comes with two free lift tickets to Cranmore and Waterville Valley and a mess of discounts to 22 resorts in the East.  

Tahoe Card from Snowbomb
One of our favorite cards.  It’s $39.99 for the next four days, then kicks up to the regular price of $80.  You get a free ticket to Donner Ranch, free rentals, free tune-ups, discounted tickets and lodging, and a one year subscription to Transworld Snowboarder or Skiing.  Phew…

White Gold Card
For only $189 dollars you get a free lift ticket to 29 resorts in the Michigan area.  The first person to ski all 29 gets a free card for next year.  Roadtrip!  

ALA Ski Card 2009
We stumbled across this card the other day on the Internet and had to post it.  $130 for 11 tickets at resorts in New Mexico and Colorado.  Only 1000 of these cards for sale from the American Lung Association of New Mexico.  This one you’ll want to double check.  The site doesn’t excactly scream legitimate ski deal.  

Pow Pow Platter
It’s not a discount card, but it’s such a good deal we had to post it somewhere.  A sampler of three mountains — Steamboat Springs, Copper, and Winter Park.  $99 for one lift ticket to each resort.  Plus, you get a to-go container gift box.  After Jan. 3, the price goes up to $129.

What discount card are you rocking this season? Let us know at tips@thesnowjunkies.com.
