I know a lot of people here were using the Rossignol search & win promo to get free ski gear. While Rossignol ended their promo contest Sessions and Ride Snowboards still have theirs.

Here are the banner links to them:




I got a lot of good free gear from Rossignol and am now working on getting some stuff from Ride.

See Ski Films - get Elk Mountain Voucher

Hey Skiers,

I saw the Winter Go Play brochure here last year and used that at Sugarbush. Wanted to give something back to the group. If you are near Eastern Pa - Bethlehem is hosting a ski film festival called Stoketoberfest Oct 22-23 with 5 ski films from 4 film companies organized into 3 sessions of 2 films each. The Meatheads movie repeats. For $15 (online price) you get to watch 2 ski movies, copy of Powder Magazine and a free voucher to Elk Mountain. Plus chance for swag and raffle prizes. No brainer just based on the ticket voucher. Google Stoketoberfest to find the website.

See you on the hill.

Pays to shop around. The NH resorts concluded about a year ago that they were "giving tickets away" at rates they didn't need to. Or so they think.

Another suggestion. Friend Liftopia on Facebook. I won a $10 coupon from them in a photo contest last week. Actually, a LOT of people won.

Did Liftopia, become LiftTickets.com or something like that? I thought I had "friended" them last season on FB. Now I'm having trouble finding Liftopia on FB. I find, in my situation that discounts like those offered on-line are the way to go.

Cool. I didn't know they were already taking purchases. Their tour info is still from last year. Though their web page says they are adding Canadian areas (as well as some out west). Gotta get that passport card in, ASAP. Time to buy that R&S Card if it is available so that is done. My APR for MRG just showed up to so that is a Mad Card as well.

Hey Twinplanx,

Those guys have no affiliation with Liftopia, though they seem to be super aggressive on Facebook about trying to target our users. It will be interesting to see if they are able to get any deals on their site during their first season.

On the other side of things, Liftopia is entering its 5th season and should have 150-200 resorts on our site with deals. Keep an eye out for lots of new things (launching in the next couple weeks), and we will be giving away massive quantities of schwag on Facebook, so we'll see you guys there!

Looking forward to a great season, and as always, please let us know if you have any ideas as to how we can improve our site.

Hey Evmo,
Would you please see if you can work a deal with Ullr? I'd gladly pay an extra 20-spot for a 12" powder day. ;)

My direct line to Ullr told me that if everyone invites their friends to "like" liftopia on Facebook, NE resorts will get a regular pounding this season. With no rain days, and no temps less than 15... :)

I used Liftopia a couple times last season. Got a good deal on some tix to Magic... I was so pleased w/ the way it worked I will use Liftopia again this season for sure(if you could get Magic on board again that would be an added bonus). I'm not even sure how I friended the other guys.

Wear your button to the participating mountain each week, and present the appropriate voucher from your coupon book to get the half-price deal. Be sure to join us at 4 pm for the Harpoon Apres-Ski & Ride Party in the lodge. We'll chill-out after a day on the slopes and give away a ton of terrific prizes which could include TSL Snowshoes, Vermont Teddy Bears, gift certificates and loads more!
Buttons are non-transferable. ONLY 2010 "Ski and Ride with The Point" buttons are acceptable and you MUST have the Coupon for each Ski & Ride Event at time of ticket purchase.


Buttons cost $3
