Skiing and snowboarding is never cheap but with a few savvy tips you can get through your next trip without breaking the bank.
Don’t be scared by the rates of all-inclusive packages. If you take the time to do the math, you’ll find that purchasing separate flights, transfers, accommodation, food, drinks, lift passes, equipment hire, ski school (and so on) works out to be a lot more than a package. Take advantage of it!
If you’re traveling on your own or as a couple, hunting down last minute deals is entirely possible and worthwhile. Resorts and tour operators often have incredible deals at the last minute in an attempt to fill their empty rooms instead of leaving them unoccupied. A website like Last Minute Ski Vacations has dozens of great deals.
You can often find up to 20% discount at rental shops if you reserve your gear online before arriving at the mountain. And what’s even better, with free delivery and slopeside assistance, you’ll get to skip the lines and pesky paperwork when you get there! A great company like Black Tie Skis offers all that and more.
Nothing wrong with a packed lunch! Lunches on the mountain are exorbitantly expensive (and often not that great). Swing into a supermarket and pick up stuff to make sandwiches or wraps that can be kept in your locker or even in your jacket pocket. Save the expensive meals for a nice dinner.
And we’re not talking instant coffee! Bring your own mobile pour over coffee that you can brew in your room or even on the mountain. One Fresh Cup are ready packed single serve filters. They’re so light and compact you can stash a few in your pocket for the day. When it’s time for a coffee break, just grab a cup and some hot water from the cafeteria - and hey presto - you’ve got hot fresh coffee at a fraction of the price.
There’s always a discount to be found when it comes to lift passes. Either purchase early online at the game-changing website Liftopia, find discounts at local ski stores, check for AAA, military and other membership deals, and look out for Kids Ski Free programs and more.
If you’re lucky enough to be able to take a mid-week vacay, ski during the week! Everything is more expensive on the weekends, especially lodging. Weekday skiing is not only more affordable but the slopes will be less crowded too.
One Fresh Cup is a revolutionary way to brew that uses ready-packed single-serve filters. You can consistently brew a great cup without any guesswork! Let’s see why:
Coffee grounds are measured for you. Each single-serve filter is pre-packed with the exact amount of grounds for the perfect cup.
Packed filters are nitrogen flushed and sealed within hours of grinding to preserve freshness.
Coffee beans are professionally ground to perfection in small batches.
The traditional pour over is one of the oldest brewing methods and produces a consistently great coffee.
There’s no need for machines so your coffee will never be exposed to bacteria or mold.
Remove filter from package and tear along perforation.
Gently pull hangers away from filter and set on coffee mug.
Slowly pour hot water into filter in small intervals.
