Here's a fun Q and A to to answer some of those FAQ'S...
Q: When is the best time to book my next snow vacation?
A: As soon as you know your schedule and how many people you are traveling with. Lodging choices at the snow resorts are not abundant like beach resorts or big city convention hotels. Also, there are lots of 'early booking' discounts. Last, if you need to cancel, penalties are minimal with advanced notice; so there's lots to gain and little to lose by planning early.. Here's some great lodging suggestions.
Q: How do I get discounted lift tickets?
A: Be sure to order your lift tickets with your lodging. Look for an EARLY BOOKING or STAY FREE / SKI FREE promotional lodging / lift package; you will pay more if ordered separately. Lodging / lift inclusive packages typically give 15% - 40% off your total for both. Snow Sport Vacations specializes in discounted lodging / lift ticket packages. Lift Rates

Q: When should I travel to get the best deal?
A: Early December and early April will give you the biggest bang for your buck. However, there are great deals from early January until mid-February and then again in early March. Mid-week stays can be cost-effective, too. If you can, avoid the school breaks ie. Christmas - New Years, President's Week, and Spring Break in late March. You will get the best value if you can stay at least 4-nights, as longer stays always give better deals, especially on your lift tickets. Book Early Lodging Promotions
Q: What should I include in my package to help save money?
A: To plan a complete, best value, snow vacation package, you should always include flights, accommodations, airport transfers or your car rental, lift tickets, and equipment rentals. Vehicle rental rates typically go up as you approach your travel dates, so lock-in your price right away. Walk-up' rates on lifts and equipment rentals can be at least 20% higher when you get there. Be early; be thorough.
