Right where I want to be
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

Its not on their website, but this site has a photo of the available tickets.

http://www.summitonline.com/free-sh...e-mens-insulated-ski-jacket-2011-p190965.html

Haven't compared to last year, looks very close to the same.

Hopefully the Jackets on the site aren't the only ones as they aren't as good looking as the Vigor which I bought last year.

Been trying to figure out the difference, can check when I get home. But I know Homewood, Whitefish, Mt Hood Meadows, La Crosse and I believe Hidden Valley are new. Lost is Big Sky and Holiday Valley. Glad to see Copper is still there, thought they might be gone with the new owners. I'm pleased with the changes, should be able to use Homewood and Mt Hood. Will be interesting to see if Waterville is still a 2 for 1, or really a freebie like the rest. At any rate no matter what they look like it's still gotta be the best deal in skiing. And you can always give the new jacket to charity and keep the book.

So the above is correct except I missed the removal of Boston Mills/Brandywine. So much for my big ski trip to Ohio. Also the Ski Train in Colorado has been removed, but that didn't actually run last year anyway. As for jackets there's also a new version of the Course jacket from last year....

Also the Descente Passport jacket will be back again. Great deal, buy a jacket for about $220 and get 40 free lift tickets. I think I used 16 this past year, so that came to $13.75 a day. The jackets are actually very nice too.

That's great news thanks! I'll probably get another one this season. I was able to use about a dozen of the free lift tickets last year. :spread:

EICSL.ORG offer Jay Peak Trip and Season Pass for =blink!blink!blink!

IF YOU EVER NEEDED A REASON TO JOIN A CLUB, THIS IS IT.

As I prepared for our first ACE club meeting tonight, I was reviewing the EICSL trips and had to catch my breath then call 911 once I read the JAY PEAK trip.

Jam 4 of your closest club friends into a slopeside condo for these prices:

5-Day - $340
3-Day - $195

and you get:
-3-5 days of skiing
- a room
- a lesson
- a race clinic
- 20% discount on future lodging 2010-11
- A 2010-11 SEASONS PASS

YOU READ THAT RIGHT, A SEASONS PASS - A 7 DAY PASS FOR THE 5-DAY plan, a MIDWEEK PASS for the 3-day plan.

Bear in mind that an early-season pass purchase is $629 for 7day and $399 for midweek.

http://eicsl.org/

I double-checked it with Clark - that is the deal. The only requirement is that you are a current member of an EICSL-affiliated club.

So what are you waiting for? Join an EICSL-affiliated club TODAY!
http://eicsl.org/clubs.html

HOW CAN YOU SAY "NO" TO THAT????

I <heart> ACE

Hey if you are looking for people with preseason deals going on check out FactoryDirectSkis.com. They have awesome skis at discount ski pricing and I just got an email from them saying they are going to have some other deals and discounts soon. Worth a look!

Just got an email from them? More like you work for them. My suggestion would be contacting the boards' admin and asking to post a link. It is relevant and there are good deals there. But this "indirect" approach claiming you just got an email from them is rather silly and spamy, not the best way to represent your company, IMO.

Agreed! So from someone who does not work for these companys... Last year in UT we came across Level 9 sports. Great deals, pricing and selection, plus they ship. We picked up some goodies, including new poles for while we were out there (buddies got lost in the 7ft fresh pow). Other spot we use is steep and cheap. Signed up for the online updates. They dont bomb you with emails, pretty entertaining posts, huge deals. evogear too.
