Whether you’re looking to take advantage of the snow that might be headed our way this weekend or just seeking out an enticing sticking stuffer for the skier or rider in your family, there are plenty of early-season deals check out as the holidays approach.
Here are a few ski deals you should look into this winter.
Through Dec. 18, Wachusett Mountain is offering a sale on its three-day lift cards, $135.15 adults, $118.15 juniors (normally $159 and $139, respectively). There’s also a $30 savings on three-day learn-to-ski packages at $169.15 (ages six and up). New this season for pass holders at Wachusett is the ability to ski Stratton Mountain Resort in Vermont with 50 percent savings on lift tickets midweek, 25 on weekends and holidays. Details at www.wachusett.com.
Nashoba Valley has yet to announce its opening date for the 2017-18 season, but for every $50 you currently purchase in gift cards to the Westford ski area, you’ll receive an additional $10 tacked on. Thus, a $50 gift card becomes a $60 gift card, a $100 gift card a $120 gift card, etc. www.skinashoba.com.
Mount Snow Resort will celebrate its annual Founders Day on Dec. 12 with lift tickets going for only $12. There will even be free cake to celebrate the resort’s birthday at 3 p.m. to boot. Buy tickets online now before they disappear. mountsnow.com/events/calendar/founders-day
Black Mountain and Cranmore Mountain
Similar to what visitors can experience at nearby Story Land during the summer months in New Hampshire, Jackson’s Black Mountain and North Conway’s Cranmore Mountain Resort both offer perks for latecomers upon arrival.
