This winter, Ski Areas of New York (SANY) is rolling out three great deals to encourage travelers- not just New Yorkers, but skiers from around the country and the world – to discover New York’s ski areas. (Note: the deals must be booked in advance at the new site, iskiny.com):

Discover New York Skiing $12 Lift Tickets. On December 19, 2013 and January 9, 2014, 10,000 skiers per day will be able to take advantage of $12 lift tickets through the Discover New York Skiing promotion at 26 participating ski areas across the state. Organized by Ski Areas of New York (SANY), the promotion is an expansion of last year’s popular 10-10-10 one-day deal. Tickets must be reserved and paid in advance and are the perfect start to a long weekend getaway. For details, visit www.iskiny.com/ski-deals/discover-ny-skiing.

Kids Ski Free. SANY is offering free lift tickets and learn to ski packages for 3rd and 4th grade skiers and snowboarders throughout the 2013-2014 winter ski season at 25 ski areas across the state. Passes in the form of a Passport must be obtained in advance, and there’s a $22 processing fee for the season. For details, visit www.iskiny.com/ski-deals/free-kids-program.

Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month discounts. January is National Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month and New York ski areas are joining in with a great deal. This year, 28 NYS Ski Areas are offering learn to ski and snowboard packages which include lifts, lessons and rentals for $35 (some blackout dates apply and shipping and handling charges will apply at time of purchase). To obtain a Learn to Ski $35 voucher, go to www.iskiny.com. You must pay in advance and take your voucher to the ski area that you selected for your Learn to Ski and Snowboard experience.

More deals, special events and updated snow reports. A new mobile-friendly website, www.iskiny.com, offers the latest information on snow conditions, ski area events, updates, maps, adaptive programs, and other information about skiing in New York. The site, operated by SANY, is a one-stop shopping center that also has a section with bookable deals such as third-day-free, ski/stay weekends and other lodging specials.
