Christmas is coming early! Look at some of the incredible deals for golf and skiing! You’ll have enough left over to buy Gramma those reindeer ear muffs!
First, $3.50 lift tickets to Mad River Glen, near Sugarbush, Vermont. One of the only true skiing co-ops in the world, snowboarders are not allowed at Mad River. Called by SKI magazine and others, “the hardest terrain in the east,” Mad River is a final exam in skiing, totally living up to their slogan, “Mad River Glen, ski it if you can.”
What can you buy for these days for 50 cents?! 14 gumballs? Triscuits? Old Bay Seasoning? Well for a while you can get an all day lift ticket! By comparison, the next best deal we found was Smugglers’ Notch, (also has a hell of a deal), where I got a two day ticket for $61.
In golf, fabled Thendara Golf Club in Old Forge, New York, is selling a year membership for just $89! A terrific Donald Ross front nine (including a Biarritz green and a Buried Elephant green) leads to a tree lined back nine through the Adirondack foothills forest.
That’s unlimited play all year for the same price as two ordinary rounds. Hurry though, the deal will expire soon. See thewir website or Facebook page for more details.
