A number of New England ski resorts are running $17 lift ticket specials on Tuesday for St. Patrick's Day, including Sugarbush's Mt. Ellen, Waterville Valley (including the option to stay overnight at the Golden Eagle Lodge for another $17), and Mad River Glen (if you were your green, of course). Not bad. But here's the deal of the season if you act quickly.
Liftopia.com is offering $1 lift tickets to Jay Peak on Monday. Quantities, however, are limited to the first 50 customers. Alas, the 57-cent child passes have already sold out.
Add it up. One dollar for Jay Peak, Tuesday for $17, and $9 Friday at Wildcat Mountain (also tomorrow), and it's by far the most inexpensive week of skiing this season.
