The Mountain: Waterville Valley, NH
The Deal: The number of points scored by the New England OPPONENT is the price you pay for a lift ticket the following Tuesday.
How It Works: If the final score is: New England – 45 , Opponent – 3. Your lift ticket at Waterville Valley the Tuesday following that game is just $3! And if the New England defense shuts out their opponent, you’re skiing for free down 52 awe-inspiring trails in the White Mountains.
Dates: Nothing on Dec. 28, but as long as the Pats are playing football.
Our Take: We finally get rewarded for the Pats being the best team in football. Defense! Defense!
