Cheap Lift Tickets and Ski and Stay Packages Entice Spring Breakers Back to Slopes

Mountain Resorts Offering Deep Powder, Deeper Discounts and Sunny Days

    BOSTON, MA, March 18, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ -- While Washington and Wall Street struggle to boost the ailing economy, mountain resorts across the country fight the downturn with their own stimulus plan - great discounts on ski vacation packages for the 2009 spring skiing and riding season.

According to RealAdventures, a website popular for its extensive range of global travel listings and travel industry forecasts, consumers are planning spring skiing getaways across the country and taking advantage of the winter-like conditions that have lasted well into March. Warmer temperatures, lower gas prices and off-the-slope attractions are also contributing to the popularity of spring ski weekends.

"The ski industry is reporting a decent 2008-2009 season, highlighted by early winter and late February snow storms," says Vik Kachoria, founder and CEO of RealAdventures. "With the spring skiing and riding season underway, RealAdventures is reporting an increase in travel inquiries to mountain resorts, signaling a rise in spring skiing vacations from year's past."

The down economy has forced many spring breakers to forego a destination vacation this year and consider trip options closer to home. Ski and snowboard vacations have a large appeal and feature savings on airfare, ski-and-stay packages and discounted lift tickets.

More than a dozen ski resorts in Vermont are offering lift tickets for $39 or less and other resorts are featuring a spring season ticket for as little as $99. Skiers are also flocking to destinations like Utah and Tahoe, California where late winter storms have brought near perfect skiing and riding conditions.

With more than 500 ski resorts in the United States alone, from Aspen to the Alps, the ski and ride section of the RealAdventures website helps skiers and snowboarders better plan their of spring ski vacation. Whether it be accommodations, adventure listings or off-the-slopes attractions, RealAdventures provides ski enthusiasts with customized quotes and detailed information with the click of a button.
