Here's my tally (lift ticket portions of bus fares is calculated by the tally between lift and bus and bus only pricing):

Sunday River bus trip lift ticket portion: $37
Stowe bus trip lift ticket portion: $39
Simon Mall gift card fee for 5 Waterville vouchers: $9

Grand total for 7 days skiing: $85. Though, I did spend at least 3x that much on transit.

Don't think this has been posted yet. Last weekend I booked a Sunday night stay at Jay Peak in a brand new 1 bedroom condo for $220. This included 2 adult lift tickets and 2 kids lift tickets for Sunday AND Monday, plus access to the water park for all 4 again on Sunday AND Monday, free Internet access, and daycare for the two kids both days as well. I booked the deal over the phone with Jay's reservation at 800.451.4449.

If you're looking for some new gear, Amazon has some good deals on helmets/goggles currently. Picked up a pair of Smith I/O goggles myself. Most of their stuff is around 50/60% off through April 14. There's a special page for all the deals - just do a search for "ski" and you'll see the banner ad at the top of the page.

Are you open to Jay Peak instead? They are having some amazing offers right now. Best to call as the lowest rates (Golf cottage lodging + ski & splash) are not advertised online.

Thanks! Its possible...I know the Killington deal (and picture Andyzee posted yesterday) are certainly making us reconsider our choices. Nice to have choices this year!

Is the Killington lift ticket deal valid for lift tickets from this year or does it have to be the same day?

I'm reading it to be from this year. Will find out Saturday.

And thanks, Steamboat1, for the post about the drop in price on Sugarbush!

I read it to be any ticket/pass from any resort. K tickets & I'd assume Pico tickets have to be dated before April 1. I'll see you at the pond skimming Sat. MommaBear. I won't be skiing but still plan on using the discounts for my friends. I even have one free anytime ticket that came with my pass that I didn't get to use myself that I'll be giving to a friend. FYI K also lowered ticket prices to $59. They also said they'll be running lifts in the Canyon & on Snowdon for the weekend.
