Sliding on Black(out) Ice

Ever think about day skiing during the blackout periods? Ever figure you couldn't get a discount during this period? I've put together large amounts of data for Northern New England resorts/areas and am finding some interesting strategies.

Certain resorts offer pre-purchase of ticket blocks, quantity 3 to 10 depending on the resorts. All the areas below offer sales through early December, and the ticket vouchers are transferable (except for Cranmore). Each has a different quantity requirement.

Bolton Valley Bromley Butternut Cannon Cranmore Gore Mad River Magic Mountain Mount Sunapee Okemo Whiteface

Some interesting names on this list.
Now, all of these places is pretty much gonna be very busy, so if you're looking for a hide-away, it's not this list. But, if you gotta go there anyways, here's your sign!

So when people tell you you can't get a discount during holidays, show them this. I've got other revelations on this data mining exercise that I'll share with you later.

Anyone come across the Ski VT passes yet? I bought a couple last year, I believe they come in a 3 and 6 packs? Someone posted the form on here last year, was just wondering if it was up yet. I checked SkiVermont.com but didn't find anything.
Is there a link to this yet?

I talked with one of the owners today. He said they will be offering discount tix again this year in both Salem NH and Burlington, VT. Realistically, tickets won't be available until January.
