The ACE Ski and Board Club summer ticket voucher sale is underway. Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine tickets are available at steep discounts. Membership required. Join and access these deals now. The sales are over in 1-2 weeks depending on the state.

Joined the ACE club today, and I ordered 2 magic tickets at $20 each. Thanks for posting this. Will I get a club card in the mail?

Skullcandy Mountain Passport with purchase of Geigerrig Pack

Now until Monday The Clymb is selling Geigerrig packs at close to 50% off ($60-$75) the pack comes with the Skullcandy Mountain Passport which contains free lift tickets to Bretton Woods, Hunter, Nashoba, Sugarbush, Wachusetts, Waterville, and other resort around North America.

The packs are pretty cool with a pressurized water reservoir so you can easily hydrate, you can determine yourself if it's a gimmick or clever product. I'm not going to be a spokes person for it.

You do need a "membership" to Clymb. Here's an invite.

Here's info from Geigeririg's facebook: http://www.facebook.com/topic.php?uid=326063812861&topic=17356

What a deal. The Sugarbush ticket along (no blackouts) is a deal alone.
Besides, I want to enter the contest to win a shotgun. Should keep the line cutters at bay :daffy:

Gratuitous plug for the two Snowboarding search and win promo sites!

The link to Sessions promo site is here:
www.sessions.searchpluswin.com

and the Ride Snowboards one is here:
http://ride.searchpw.com/refer/getfreestuff

Both sites are an easy way to win free snowboarding and skiing gear. They work like Google only you can win points that can be redeemed for snowboarding gear for using them.

Before it was discontinued I got a lot of free gear from the Rossignol promo offer (including my kick ass Rossi S-7s!). So far I got a free ski jacket for my wife from the Sessions promo and a pair of good ski socks for myself from the Ride promo.

Its an easy way to score free gear! If you havent used them yet they are worth checking out.

Want a free ticket voucher in exchange for a bit of work?

The Sugarbush, Slide Brook Trimming weekend will be held on August 27 and 28. If you are available to help maintain ski bands in Slide Brook please join us. We will be meeting at 9:30 AM both days at the bottom of the Super Bravo chair lift. We hope to get a ride to the top of the mountain and then work down from there.

Please bring our own lunch, liquids, cutting tools, first aid kit and be prepared for working in steep woods of Slide Brook. Contact me for more details.

Anyone over the age of 18 is invited, so please bring your friends. It is a great way to see the woods during the summer and you can scope out the best lines to ski next winter. Plus you and your friends from other mountains can get a voucher for their work. If you ski there you should consider helping to keep it safe and fun.

Stowe Club Days

Discount ticket days are available for clubs this year. I contacted Stowe today. They are making that offer plus a free Stowe Points card available for members again this year.

Adult tickets on select days:
1-day=$43
2-day=$64
3-day=$96

3 days for the price of a one day peak ticket? (aw, within 7 bucks!)

You can't beat that with a stick.
I'll be posting more info for members on our site in a while. I've been racking up a lot of deals. I've learned that going shopping in July and August yields great rewards. Those people hate hot weather as much as I do!

re: 2011/12 Ski Maine Peak to Peak Challenge
I would be exhausted if I tried to visit all these damn areas in one season.
;
During the 2011/12 season, we are challenging skiers and snowboarders to visit as many Maine ski areas as they can. The challenge is simple! Sign up on SkiMaine.com, and keep track of your visits and you will be entered to win great prizes. With each area you visit the pot gets richer!

Here is how it works:
