Huge ski & snowboard sale this weekend at Bolton Valley. New stuff too, not just old found crap.

JACKSON HOLE (WY)
The Grand Pass is $1,275 until 9/1/13. Then it goes up to $1,695. So that's 130 days of riding/skiing. If you rode 130 days it would be around $10 a day. Or, if the lift tickets are $117 (which they are) then you ski/ride around 11 days to break even.
You also get half off tickets at all Mountain Collective Resorts (Aspen/Snowmass, Squaw/Alpine Meadows, Alta/Snowbird, Mammoth Mountain, Whistler/Blackcomb).

Win a place in their two week BASI Level 1 training course in Méribel. Which you only get credit for if you are British. And you have to be a UK resident to enter.

Win a trip for two to Salt Lake for Warren Miller's Ticket to Ride premier. And they let you stay in a hotel!
Book your seven day vacation at Whistler before 8/31/13 and it's $81 for a night and a lift ticket. Pretty hard to beat.....
