Which reminds me. Dec. 24th is a great day to ski if you can swing it. Prices are still low and the mountain is all decked out with great trails ready to go, and you have the place to yourself. I've enjoyed myself, though it does seem a bit lonely and none of the workers really want to be there....

Abenaki + Waterville Valley (NH) $20

- Buy a full-priced Day Pass at Abenaki Ski Area and enjoy a
day skiing here.
- Take that used, dated Abenaki ticket to Waterville Valley
on a following day and turn it in at the ticket office there.
- You can then purchase a ticket to ski at Waterville Valley
for $10!
- Valid at Waterville Valley Sunday--Friday, non-holiday


Abenaki tickets are $10 weekends, $9 non-weekends (for non-residents of Wolfboro, NH).
Hmm, skiing on the cheap... dumpster diving for loose tickets! :)

Posting to the Abenaki Waterville deal - We have been there - it is a rope tow so don't wear the good gloves or mittens! They rent leather grips which we learned about after our gloves were messed up! It is fun to boot around on but a lot of work related to the rope tow. Still a great deal if you don't mind skiing a few short runs!

What do you guys know about this one?

Active GearUp. Wateas fro 357, but you have to "join"?

So I joined with one of my dumbed down addresses. I began the order process it seems to work. Time to read the fine print..
I can't tell if it's for real.

I can't speak for that gearup section of active.com, but if any one is interested in a pair of Watea 94s in 178, I have a pair mounted once that I am looking to sell on the cheap. Used only one season, minor base wear but no core shots, needs a tune for sure. Thinking $200 shipped.

Well, here's the fine print:
[h=2]How much does an ACTIVE Advantage membership cost?[/h]
  1. If you sign up for the 30-day ACTIVE Advantage trial offer (either through the website, GearUp or after an online activity registration), you'll receive full access to all member benefits during your trial period. When the 30 days of the trial are up, your benefits will automatically continue with a regular annual membership (at the current annual membership fee).
  2. The annual membership fee is currently $59.95. That's less than $5 per month for full access to all activity registration discounts, additional savings on GearUp deals, free & discounted event entries, free training plans, retail/dining/travel discounts, monthly gear giveaways and more.
