Spring marks a variety of celebrations. From warm weather, to new growth and the signs that summer is right around the corner. For skiers, spring time in Vermont means soft turns, warm sun and thanks to Puxatawney Phil seeing his shadow, that there's still plenty more days of skiing and snowboarding to enjoy.
When you can ski or ride all day in a t-shirt and sunglasses, even fall once or twice without getting cold or hurt, there's not much that can get you down. The other great part of spring skiing and snowboarding in Vermont is the late season deals and discounts on ski vacations offered by ski resorts.
Here's a few suggestions for great deals to check out for a spring ski vacation in Vermont.
The Vernal Eternal at Mount Snow
Every March the Vernal Equinox marks the arrival of spring. At Mount Snow it also marks the arrival of a great deal. The Vernal Eternal pass is an all-access pass to possibly the best six weeks of the season that are jam packed with events, music and obviously, plenty of spring skiing.
Cost: $299 - good through the end of the season.
Spring Loaded at Bromley Mountain
It's not every day you can buy a lift ticket that comes pre-loaded with four days of skiing on it. Not to mention it can be reloaded endlessly through the end of the season. Best yet, if you don't get to use all the days before the snow melts, just use them to spring into the next ski season and use your remaining loaded days until December 21. A two-for-one season closer and opener. Now that's a bargain.
Cost: $99, all ages. Includes 4-days. Reload with 4 additional days for $99. Good until December 21, 2012.
The X2 at Stratton Mountain
How about a cheap season pass that pays for itself in just one visit? The X-2 Card is the pass that pays you back. Save $30 off weekdays, $20 off weekends and $10 off holidays, plus get a free day just for buying the card. Don't waste money on days you won't get to use and never pay full price any day of your ski vacation.
Cost: $89 includes one free day and discounts for every day.
All this spring skiing and sun is sure to wear you out. Luckily we have a wide selection of short-term vacation rentals just a short drive from the sunny slopes.
