Want First Tracks on Fresh Powder? Breck Hotels Open Lifts Early for Guests Every Friday Morning
Although it doesn't feel like it to us (this contributor is currently in Mexico!), ski season is officially in full swing in the States, with snow falling across the country and temperatures down below freezing in mountain towns out west. While the initial shock of the winter season takes some time to embrace, we know you're excited to hit the slopes.
With the calender now on December, ski deals and packages are really beginning to flood out. Hotels offer a variety of options, including ski and stay deals, discounts on rentals, and packages for both beginners and adrenaline seekers, and we'll dish on the best ones later this week so you can get to booking your trip for 2014.
We see many offers that allow you to save money, but we get most excited about hotels that provide unique perks and experiences for their guests. For example, we're digging Breckenridge Ski Resort's “First Tracks Fridays” program that begins this Friday (Dec 13th), which allows guests staying at any of the mountain's official lodging properties to get on-mountain access one hour before the resort opens to the public every Friday morning throughout the season.
Participating properties include the DoubleTree by Hilton Breckenridge, Mountain Thunder Lodge, One Ski Hill Place, Crystal Peak Lodge and The Village at Breckenridge. The only requirements for eligibility are that you must be an overnight guest of one of these hotels on Thursday night and hold a valid Breck lift ticket or season pass.
We will never complain about a discount, but with travel being so much about the memories made, we love this kind of special because it gives us a tangible opportunity that enhances our trip. Stay tuned this week to see what other hotels and mountain groups are promoting and how you can take advantage.
