Missed LivingSocial’s great deal for Mount Snow? No worries, I’ve got another one for you courtesy of Killington. Run to Costco and grab a pack of 5 five day passes for a paltry $290. The tickets which usually run $86 each are good any day, including holiday weekends. Not a member? Even after the $55 you’ll spend to become one, this deal is still a steal (the superstore will also fully refund your membership at any point if you are not happy with it, fyi).
For those of you who haven’t heard, Killington is a world class resort located just five hours outside of NYC in Killington, VT. The resort houses six mountains, 140 trails and over 70 miles of terrain. With an extensive lift network featuring two high-speed gondolas that service everything from groomed cruisers to classic New England tree runs to parks, pipes, bumps and steeps there is something for every level skier or boarder to enjoy. After a day on the slopes, hit the town of Killington and enjoy the numerous restaurants and bars. For a truly unique dining experience make a reservation of the Ledgewood Yort. The five course price-fix dining adventure there will introduce you to a bevy of local ingredients hand picked daily by the restaurants executive chef. For something a little more low key, make your way to the Wobbly Barn, a perennial mountain favorite. Night owls should be sure to check out the Pickle Barrel for nightly live shows or the Nightspot if you want to dance the night away.
If you get your hands on some passes and make it out to the mountain, let me know. I’ll be there MLK weekend thanks to this deal. Ride on.
