SkiNH seems to have something similar to SKiVT but I don’t know what kinds of discounts they typically offer https://www.skinh.com/deals/ski-nh-lift-ticket-packages

Not as good for the big resorts (Loon is like $70), but Ragged tickets might have been $40 a few years back. No blackouts whatsoever, so it was a decent deal.

Vermont Travel Club Card
https://www.vermonttravelclub.com

Entercom Hartford Ski Club Card (link is to last year’s)
https://connecticut.cbslocal.com/cbs-ski-club-2012-two-cards-to-choose-from/

Someone mentioned in another thread the lack of cheap lodging deals. The lodging deals there (mostly 15% off it seems) are some of the only lodging discounts I've seen.

Sugarloaf offers Zoom Rooms (https://www.sugarloaf.com/hot-deals/zoom-rooms; $99 a night) which is a flexible anytime room you buy in advance. Sunday River did the same thing last year with the Snow Cap Inn at $99 a night. SR's was a Cyber Monday Promotion. Not spectacular, but if you value slopeside it is hard to beat those prices and flexibility.

Amazing work Tuna! Definitely appreciate it.

Sugarloaf had the Christmas in July sale this year (a 3 pack for $160 with no blackouts). Sunday River has the Threedom Pass (https://www.sundayriver.com/lift-tickets/threedom-pass) which was on sale for $209 early in October. Far from amazing deals, but you have almost no options when it comes to Boyne resorts on weekends (and even weekdays).

Jay did it last season too, though not listed yet for this season. Anyone else do this?

Great job, Tuna!

Thanks! Updated the list. Will take another look at Mountain Sports Club later for accuracy. I know that and Ride and Ski Card will need to be updated once the 2018/2019 deals are official. Working on assumption of same as last year for now.

Will post VT Travel Club this evening, gotta get back to work.

Alright added a compact version of the Wachusett pass holder deal. Overall I'm gonna avoid listing deals that are pass holder benefits. I think before that I would need to add IKON / MAX / EPIC and whatever passes like that exist, but I don't really want to go there with this either.

I used to do MSC every year, but dropped it last year. And wow, looking at it this year it's really been decimated. More expensive to get the "free lift ticket" and they've lost a ton of their all year BOGO mountains.

Perhaps you should include your own personal definition of what "skiing on the cheap" means to you, and what you expect to see on this thread, so those with the best of intentions can avoid wasting your time?

Updated with more specific guidelines.

For MSC & Ride and Ski Card --- since they'll be updating their lists for the season soon anyway -- I'll wait until they do for that. Most things should be same or close on those for now but double check before you buy.

In the category of "medium" deals, on Liftopia you can buy an unrestricted MRG lift ticket for $69 adult/$58 for 65+. This is not as good a deal as the Mad Card, but you can buy just one ticket. The savings is about $20 over the walkup rate.

OTOH, there's a similar deal for Magic and the price is $70 for an unrestricted lift ticket. This is NOT a good deal.

Nice!!!!!!!!!!!

WHOA NELLY... Just bought one too. Just made my day right there!

I also just called Ride and Ski Card guy and he said he WILL be at Boston Ski Show. This is the best way to grab one because then he will give you a lift ticket bonus to your choice of mountain (while supplies last).
