We're not getting a bailout here in the Mt. Washington Valley in northern New Hampshire. We are offering lots of ski deals to vacationers though; in the hopes that enticements not bailouts will work.
Cranmore Mountain is offering two-for-one lift tickets from Monday to Thursday (no holidays). They also offer a package deal of 3 tickets for $135- which is pretty good being only $45- per day. If you buy a lift ticket after 2:00 p.m. you can ski that day and continue onto the next day also (that's the "After 2, tommorrow too" deal)...for more information on Cranmore in North Conway, go to www.cranmore.com.
Shawnee Peak just 20 minutes east of North Conway in nearby Maine, offers 40 trails, of which 19 are lit for night skiing. Some Mondays, you can pack up the car full of people, and the whole carload pays $75 for the day (be sure to arrive before 11:00 a.m.) Monday nights bring tickets for $12-$14; Tuesday nights are two-for-one ski passes and $15- on some Tuesday nights (call first to confirm which nights offer the discounted prices). Thursdays are men's day and Fridays are women's day; both are $28 lift tickets. Got a honey who likes to ski? Take him or her on a date every Saturday night from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. for just $15. You can splurge on champagne later at these prices.
Attitash in Bartlett has a special promotion; buy a lift ticket and get a $10- off coupon for your next lift ticket, purchased between January 9th and March 1st. Go to their website at www.attitash.com for more ways to save at Attitash.
King Pine in East Madison is no slouch either; my daughter-in-law took advantage of their ice skating for just $12 this past weekend and loved it! Their ski packages are great: $45 Saturday night family deal (2 adults, 2 children); their senior deals are worthwile also. Those aged 65 to 69 can ski for just $28.
At Wildcat in Jackson, there is a $25 Sunday afternoon ticket. Wednesdays are two-for-one on any non-holiday. Your birthday? You can ski free here on your special day.
Last but certainly not least, Black Mountain still has their family special in place; two adults and two children ( 6-17) can ski for $79 midweek and $99 on weekends and holidays.
These are some of the "snow much fun" here in the Mt. Washington Valley!
