Boston Ski and Board Expo

I know a some of you are looking for "free" at the show, but there are a lot of deals going down for cheap. Hint: check the Facebook pages of the resort you are interested in. Several of them are tipping their hats as to their show offerings. I checked last night and found about a dozen offerings.

Here's one from Wildcat/Attitash, right from Facebook:

See you at The Boston Globe Ski & Snowboard Expo?

If so, you can get a $125 gift card on sale for $100! Gift cards are valid at both Attitash Ski Resort and Wildcat Mountain. Offer is only available at the Ski Show from Thurs., Nov. 11 - Sun., Nov. 14. See complete details at: http://attitash.com/deals.html.

I am going to have to work very hard to resist temptation, some of the deals are pretty attractive.

Ski Tune Up Groupon Deal, 11/11/10

Groupon:

Hand ski tuneup & "buffing pass" (full season access to wax machine) $20 at Ski Haus (Burlington MA, Salem NH)

[FONT=&quot]Without regular polishing, skis can become splintery and produce a smell known to attract romance-starved grizzly bears. Avoid dinner and a movie with the ferocious king of the forest with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get a premium ski tune-up and full-season buffing pass (a $95 value) at Ski Haus, which has locations in Salem and Burlington. Having served the skiing community for more than 44 years, the snow-savvy staff at the Ski Haus know how to tune your skis for smooth, flawless runs down slopes. During a premium tune-up ($45), these seasoned ski whisperers will do a base cleaning, a hand edging and beveling to the manufacturer’s specifications, any minor repairs, a hand polishing, and more. And with the full-season buffing pass ($50), you’ll become a member of the Ski Haus Wax Club and get unlimited use of the Ski Haus’s machine wax (with the option of using 100% eco-friendly wax), so you can stop in and get a fresh wax coat whether you’re heading to the hills of Sugarbush or about to tackle the quadruple black diamonds on Mount Bad Premonition.

I bought mine at 7AM. 389 have been sold in 2.5 hours. They are gonna be swamped.

For those not familiar, Groupon deals run for one day only. This one is 7AM to midnight 11/11/10.

Yeah, it's up to 458 or something now. Fine print from the ski haus site: the wax club is only on weekdays. Of course, you'll be skiing on them on the weekends anyway.

That's Crap! :) Hate spending money to save money. I am assuming that one-time activation fee is really annual activation fee. As noted before without the old specials they (Wildcat) are going to lose a lot of skier visits. I would say on their 2fer1 day they will lose more than half which would be their break even point for that day.
