Thanksgiving Weekend Roundup, Snow and Ski Lift ticket discounts

Reports vary around the country with quite a number of ski and snowboard resorts open with varying amounts of terrain and conditions. It looks like the ski industry clearly outperformed retail merchants this holiday season from a business vantage point. As the weekend went on the Rockies especially Colorado got clobbered with snow.

Top story for me today is that Loveland Ski Area reported 40" plus of new snow out of new storms this weekend and is rapidly opening terrain. They may have had the best conditions in the central Colorado and front range resorts prior to this dump, but now it has to be awfully sweet skiing and riding.

Further north in Alaska, Alyeska Resort reports as the first resort to receive over 200 inches of snowfall and probably their best opening ever in terms of terrain.

Reports from the Northeast, Mid Atlantic states and Midwest were full of great conditions and lots of terrain open and more snow falling.

New Mountain Sports Club lift ticket deals and discount coupons keep coming in for members as well:

Wachusett Mountain in Massachussett is now offering their Passport to Savings Card free to our members. This is a $30 value and a great way to save on lift tickets there all season.

Black Mountain in New Hampshire, just outside of North Conway is extending 2 for 1 lift ticket discounts to our members midweek, non holiday.

Make sure to post reviews, blogs, photos and build a profile to increase your chances to win free skis, snowboards, lift tickets and more each month.
