September 5, 2014

SkiNH-Waterville Valley e4

Ski NH is selling its popular Anywhere, Anytime Lift Tickets, which offer some of the best lift ticket deals available all year at New Hampshire alpine ski resorts.

Skiers and snowboarders who purchase their tickets by the early season deadline of September 14 can save between 20-45% off weekend and holiday rates. Better yet, tickets are fully transferable to family and friends, and can be used any day of the 2014-15 ski season.
Early season tickets are available at six price points: $18, $28, $45, $56 and $67 per ticket, and tickets must be purchased in minimum packages of six total tickets. Customers can purchase as many as they’d like until quantities run out, and they can also mix tickets up from different ski areas to enjoy a sampling of what New Hampshire has to offer. Tickets are only available for purchase online at SkiNH.com.
“Ski NH’s Anywhere, Anytime Lift Tickets are an awesome deal for skiers and riders. The fact that they’re transferable and can be used anytime during the season make them ideal gifts,” said Jessyca Keeler, Ski NH Executive Director. “But people shouldn’t wait until the holidays to buy, because quantities are limited and we sell out of many resort tickets long before the first frost.”
Ski NH is the statewide association representing 33 alpine and cross country resorts and more than 200 lodging and guest service properties in New Hampshire. For more information on ski areas, lodging packages, and updated winter events at Ski NH resorts, call Ski NH at (800) 88-SKI-NH (800-887-5464) or visit the Ski NH website at www.SkiNH.com.

During the month of January, Ski New Hampshire (Ski NH) and its 33 member resorts will participate in a national program to introduce guests to the sports of skiing and snowboarding.  Learn to Ski & Snowboard Month is a program taking place across the United States that features special offers making it easy and affordable for people to learn to ski, snowboard, cross country ski or snowshoe, and for current skiers & snowboarders to enhance their skills by taking lessons from professional instructors.

Among the special offers being featured in New Hampshire is Learn to Ski & Snowboard Free Week from January 11-17. 2014.  During this week, participating NH ski areas will be offering a limited number of free learn to ski or snowboard packages.  These packages include a free beginner lesson, free equipment rentals, and a free beginner lift ticket or trail pass to those who register in advance.  Participants must visit www.SkiNH.com to register and download a Learn to Ski or Ride Free Coupon; they then contact one of the participating areas to make a reservation for a specific day that week.  Registration opens January 2, 2014 at SkiNH.com.  Participating alpine areas include Loon Mountain, Bretton Woods, Cannon Mountain, Waterville Valley, Gunstock Mountain Resort, Cranmore Mountain Resort, Pats Peak, King Pine, Dartmouth Skiway and Granite Gorge; participating cross country areas include Jackson XC, Great Glen Trails, Gunstock Mountain Resort XC, Purity Spring XC, Waterville Valley XC, Pine Hill Ski Club and Bretton Woods XC.

Every day of the ski season, New Hampshire’s ski areas already offer specially-designed learn to ski and snowboard programs to introduce new people to the sport. In addition to these learn to ski and snowboard packages, there will be many other special programs offered during January that normally are not available.  Among these offerings, guests will find free & discounted lift tickets for those who bring a friend to try the sport, special pricing on learn to ski or snowboard packages, and follow-up rewards for first timers who choose to hit the downhill slopes or cross country trails again.  Guests can visit the January Learn to Ski & Snowboard Month section on SkiNH.com for full details & offers.

Nationally the program is being promoted by a consortium of ski industry organizations & media outlets, as well as three well-known national ambassadors: ski icon Glen Plake, New Hampshire’s own Olympic & World Cup champion Bode Miller, and World Cup champion Darren Rahlves.

“Skiing, snowboarding, cross country skiing & snowshoeing offer a fun & healthy way to get outside and enjoy winter with family and friends,” said Alice Pearce, president of Ski NH.  “As the national slogan says, ‘Humans Were Never Meant to Hibernate.'”

New Hampshire Ski Resorts offer Super Deals for Super Bowl Weekend

January 27, 2012

The New England Patriots and New York Giants will face off in Super Bowl XLVI on Sunday, February 5. The Super Bowl is a traditional occasion for family and friends to gather to enjoy the game. The 6:30 pm kickoff time is ideal for skiers and riders who want to enjoy a weekend on the snow and still be on the couch for kickoff with plenty of time to spare.

During past Patriots’ Super Bowl appearances many guests have elected to pass up skiing and riding that weekend even though the game isn’t played until Sunday night. As a result, this means less-crowded slopes and an opportunity to enjoy midweek crowds with mid-winter conditions. Ski areas have also recognized the popularity of the Super Bowl and many offer lift ticket specials to entice guests.

Among the special offers this Super Bowl weekend is the Super Sunday Special at Cannon Mountain where two people can ski or ride for $68 on February 5. King Pine at Purity Spring Resort will be offering half-day, morning lift tickets for $22 for adults and $15 for juniors on February 5. Attitash Mountain Resort and Wildcat Mountain will be offering $46 all-day lift tickets on February 5. Cranmore Mountain Resort is offering a Super Bowl ECoupon that must be printed in advance from Cranmore.com and is valid for $47 adult, $37 teen, and $32 child lift tickets on February 5. Show up at Gunstock Mountain Resort with your Patriots gear on and receive $12 off a full price adult ticket on February 5. In celebration of Super Bowl XLVI, Waterville Valley will be offering $46 lift tickets for adults and $15 for ages 12 and under on February 5. Ragged Mountain will be offering two-for-one full price lift tickets on February 5.

For cross country skiers Jackson Ski Touring will be hosting Super Bowl Widows Weekend with 50% off one or two day trails passes for groups of three or more women. Pine Hill XC Ski Club in New London will be offering a pre-Super Bowl Two Trail Passes for One promotion.

Many New Hampshire areas also regularly offer discounted passes on Sunday afternoons, which should prove to be an outstanding time to hit the slopes with many skiers and riders already at home on the couch. Even if you ski right until 4pm you still have 2 ½ hours until kickoff. Among those areas with Sunday afternoon offers are Attitash Mountain Resort, Black Mountain, Bretton Woods, Crotched Mountain, King Pine at Purity Spring Resort, Loon Mountain, Mount Sunapee, Ragged Mountain, Waterville Valley and Wildcat Mountain. Some of these offers apply to specific groups (like NH residents or kids) so please check for full details on the Daily Ticket Deals page at SkiNH.com.

“The first year or two the Patriots made the Super Bowl, we noticed some extra space on the slopes. Now that the Patriots make this almost an annual tradition, the ski areas have gotten creative with some incredible deals. Super Bowl weekend provides an ideal opportunity to enjoy mid-winter conditions at a discount price, with fewer skiers on the slopes, and still be home in time for the game,” stated Karl Stone, Ski NH’s Marketing Director.
