As the economy sputters along, ski resorts are pulling out all the stops to lure people to the slopes, offering some spectacular deals. The hitch is whether you can afford to take advantage of them. A deal at Keystone Resort tops today’s list.
If you’re engaged, love to ski, and always wanted to get married with the slopes as the backdrop, you just might want to go for it at Keystone. If you do, you’ll get complimentary ski passes for the 2010-11 season, a free stay at the resort, including champagne, and a special cake on your one-year anniversary (when you can finally use those passes) (via Gadling). It’s just one of many deals available as resorts aim to rebound from last year’s declines.
Give One Year of 5280 for just $16.
