Snow Doubt, Get On These Early Ski-Season Deals

November 15, 2012 at 12:38 PM | by | ()

Recent snowfall in Colorado and Utah have kicked off an early ski season sparking a storm of deals and packages from resorts across the country. It's not uncommon to see early-bird discounts this time of year, but it appears there's an extra bit of excitement after last year's flop of a season.

It seems every mountain resort imaginable is offering some sort of bargain, whether it's ski and stay discounts, kids ski free, or complimentary hotel nights, so check around before checking in.

Here’s a sampling of some of the best deals from major areas in the US and a few from afar:

Winter Park, Colorado: This local favorite owned by the city of Denver rewards guests who book a five-night stay ($169/night) at the Vintage Hotel before December 12th with a free season pass. The resort puts icing on the cake with a snow guarantee - previously booked nights can be rescheduled if snow conditions are not up to your liking.

Get a Lexus and Lunch at New York's Lake Placid Lodge

Go To The Hotel's Web 
  Site Where: WHITEFACE INN ROAD [map], Lake Placid, NY, United States, 12946

Now is the perfect time for a road trip and the ritzy Lake Placid Lodge in NY, is adding mini road trips to its amenities by allowing guests to take their in-house Lexus RX 450h vehicles out on loan for up to three hours on scenic drives and off-road adventures in their Adirondack Mountain location. Don’t worry about getting lost amidst the forestry and winding roads--the car is equipped with GPS.

Armed with a gourmet picnic prepared by Executive Chef, guests can explore, the Lake Placid playground, stopping at Blue Mountain Lake, The Adirondack Museum and Olympic Village, host to the 1980 Olympic Games.

When you get back to the Lodge, free yoga classes await, or if you’re tuckered out, retiring to your fireplace-equipped room may be in order (although, you may not turn it on with this heat wave).

The cars are available to borrow year round, but we think getting in on it now and even in the fall during foliage season is a smart move.

Official rates for Lake Placid Lodge come in at a pricey $599 per night.
