Ski Travel Deals
August 2nd, 2010
As any snow enthusiast can tell you, ski vacations are excellent – and expensive. Between the ski gear you need, the cost of checking an oversized bag of ski equipment, and lift tickets – not to mention the airfare and room at the ski resort – you’re talking about a hefty pricetag on any ski trip.
Which is why hunting for ski travel deals is so important if you’re one of those people who can’t stay off the slopes for long.
Here are a few posts that will help you scout out the best deals on a ski vacation, whether you’re looking for cheap airfare to get there, the best budget ski resorts, or how to save money on getting your stuff where you want to be.
If you think the lift tickets are going to cost you a pretty penny, what about the airline ticket to get you to the slopes in the first place? Flying is expensive, even if you think you’re flying in the off-season – when you’re traveling to a ski destination, that’s the peak season (no pun intended). So use these tips to help you find lower fares and you’ll have more money leftover for another day on the slopes.
