With decreasing snow levels and increasing lift-ticket prices — up to $75 a day in some areas — now’s a good time for you to get in some quality downhill time, on the cheap.
Beginning at 13,000 points, grab an adult three-day lift ticket at Steamboat in Colorado, The Canyons in Utah, Sunday River and Sugarloaf in Maine, Attitash in New York or Killington, or Mount Snow and Pico in Vermont. If sunny powder days or raging half-pipes are more your thing, head west with this redemption option: Use 6,000 points for a one-day lift ticket at Vail Resorts including Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone and Heavenly.
Both offers expire May 31, and are good until the end of the 2004-2005 ski season. A few blackout dates to note for 2005 at the Vail resorts: Jan. 1, and Feb. 19-20. Redeem either award online at http://www.membershiprewards.com. See you on the slopes.
