$10 Liftopia Purchase for the 2015-16 season
I am a cell phone neophyte, while traveling can you buy a lift ticket from Liftopia and use your cell phone as proof of purchase or do you have to have access to a printer to print POP?

Depends on the mountain. Many (most?) allow you to use your phone.

I have always used my phone. They just need the number off the confirmation. The survey is simple and I did it three times. Cell, Tablet, Desktop each time a different email.

That's a pretty good deal for Sugarloaf. Sugarloaf deals are hard to come by unless they involve lodging.

Ski Maine Mountain Pass

I have not seen that one before - pretty good deal if you live in ME and can hit them all (about $18 per day). Realistically there are 12 lift tickets that are worthwhile:

Sunday River, Sugarloaf, Shawnee Peak, Saddleback, Mt Abram, Black Mountain - that would be a little over $33 per visit so that is not bad either.

However, Titcomb and Lost Valley are easy destinations just to use them but are very small - adding these two it drops to about $24 per visit.

Either way you slice it - not bad!

Jcb, the SR promo ended a couple of weeks ago. If you blink you miss a lot of these summer deals.

Son of a... damnit! I hadn't been on here in a while and just got back from vacation, so I was a bit out of the loop.

Ski club bulk ticket sales are already underway. ACE circulated theirs last week. Look quick, these are the deepest deals of the season.

Any recommendations for the best deals? I plan to join the CSC club, but don't know if they're included with this.
