As the winter season is upon us, that means that there are a few inevitable things to look forward to. The holidays are of course one major milestone, but for many others winter means much more. The ski season is in full effect, and that brings great news to those who like to hit the slopes. Fortunately even in tough economic times, there are some great deals being offered that can get people out to the greatest ski resorts around.
Though they won’t last forever, there are some fantastic deals being offered by travel companies within the industry. The industry overall recognizes that skiers make up a major segment of travel and that can mean a great opportunity to make some money off of it. Airlines are offering low airfares starting at the holidays, and ski resorts are getting in on the act as well. Even though they may offer their services at a lower rate, they are still making money off of it by filling seats and hotel rooms respectively.
Amongst the top ski resorts that skiers want to hit up are those within British Columbia, Salt Lake City and Park City in Utah, and of course Lake Tahoe. Though destinations within Colorado continue to be popular, these are the true hot spots right now and where the deals are being offered. For those that want to hit the slopes at a cost savings, it may be well worth looking into these destinations to get a true value. This can be good news for travellers and travel companies alike, and many are hoping that 2010 marks an unprecedented year.
Even those who aren’t keen on hitting the slopes are finding that these ski towns offer up a nice escape to a winter wonderland. Many of these ski resorts also happen to offer great deals on dining, shopping, and entertainment. There continues to be a focus on other winter sports and alternative activities for those that want to stay warm by the fire. So get in on the deals, no matter what your interest in skiing, before they’re gone.
