Costco now has the boxes of hand and toe warmers. ~$15 for the hand warmers and ~$13 for the toe warmers.

4th and 5th Grader Programs

Back again

SKI VT
What's the catch? There doesn't seem to be one.
Just get a Ski Vermont Fifth Grade Passport and the world is your oyster.
Well, the slopes, anyway.
Jen Butson of Ski Vermont, the state's association of alpine and Nordic areas, says, "Count to 94. Easy, right? Especially if you're a fifth-grader. Well, that's the total number of free days on snow you'll enjoy without spending a dime at Ski Vermont's 19 alpine resorts and 31 Nordic ski areas if you're a fifth-grader armed with a Fifth Grade Passport."
There is a $10 processing fee, but that's peanuts compared to how much skiing passport holders get to enjoy.
Plus that $10 fee is donated to Keep Farms Local, a program aimed at connecting people with local farms by promoting the purchase of local, healthy foods, to sustain consumers and farmers alike, and preserve the agrarian landscape for future generations.
To receive a Free 5th Grade Passport, submit a completed application including proof of fifth grade status and a $10 processing fee. Passport holders must be accompanied by a full-day lift-ticket paying adult; the passport is not valid with any other offers or discounts. Passports are valid Dec. 1 through May 1, excluding blackout dates.
Butson points to the Green Mountain State's legacy of producing world-class athletes, including Hannah Teter, Ross Powers, and Kelly Clark, all of whom give back to their state and local communities in different ways.
The Fifth Grade Passport helps to encourage participation in the state's snow sports, perhaps by some who will become the next generation of Olympians.

It looks like lifttickets.com released their interface today. Hopefully a competitor to Liftopia will favor the consumer. Based only on a few searches, I haven't found any deals yet, but I'm sure they will be there in no time. It's too bad you can't group multiple states together, but maybe that will get updated soon.

Hi Drew and everyone,

Yes we launched LiftTickets.com on Friday and we have 3 resorts in the system so far. More to come I promise.

Thanks for the input on grouping multiple states together. It's on our to-do list. If you have any other feedback please let me know.

Welcome aboard Mike. I will be watching you guys closely. Liftopia wins in my book because I can get vouchers the night before the ski day. Now granted, most of your audience probably doesn't have the flexibility I have to call ski days on short notice. What will be most interesting is to see if you can pickup single-day tix for Stowe and Stratton. I single them out because they are traditionally tight-fisted with their deals.

The New Mexico Xtreme Card came out today....

http://www.nmxsports.org/index.php?...category_id=2&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=55

One of the best deals in skiing. There are a few less blackout days this year. No more A-Basin on it but they've added Sunlight and Cooper. Taos ticket is only good til the end of January. $125 is pretty good even if you ony use it for the 4 Taos areas.

Wow! $125.00 and it includes Monarch, one of my favorite ski areas. Too bad Ski Santa Fe is only $12-off.
