    Cool Skiing on the Cheap - 2017-18 Edition

    So I am going to start the thread for next year's skiing on the cheap! Just checked my email, and found that Wachusett will be giving away a free lift ticket for early season next year for participating in the Earth Day Cleanup on May 20th. Arrive before 10AM to get a free lift ticket and BBQ for helping clean up the hill!
