10E3435: Spring Skiing

Have to admit I'll use skiing as a generic term for being out on the mountain, though have not used skis in almost 20 years. And probably won't since a friend traded his board with a skiiing buddy for 15 minutes to 'try it' and ripped his knee apart.

Anyhow - some great deals on 'ski' tickets right now in New England if you look around. I know Bromley Mountain in VT is doing $17 tickets next Tuesday for St. Patricks Day [a ton of places doing this, see Waterville, NH too - ed.]. Liftopia is good, but the mountains have caught on and offer their own discounts now too.

And this weekend (March 12-15) the VT Open comes back to Stratton; an all ages race, retro pipe and Snurfer Challenge snowboarding event. On that note there was a great article on YoBeat the other day about the positive state of snowboarding currently - go read.
