With summer ending and fall starting up, this is a great time of year to get some deals for the 2013-14 ski season. And, the Farmer’s Almanac is predicting a big snow year for New England so cross your skis and let’s get the stoke going!
Your local ski shops already have early season equipment lease specials for the kids and tent sales are going on up here in Vermont. And when it comes to tickets and passes, why wait?
Here at Magic we’ve just launched a brand new product called the Freedom Four-Pack! It combines fab-four savings on tickets with the freedom and flexibility to use them whenever and with whomever you want. Four ticket vouchers for only $185 saves you $67, and the vouchers are good anytime this season (even holidays) and they are 100% transferable to others. Most discounts come with black-outs and restrictions–but not here at Magic where we are trying to keep winter affordable for more people. It’s all reward and no risk. But, hurry to get your Freedom Four-Pack because there are only 100 available here
Speaking of no restrictions or black-outs, now is a perfect time to get season passes at Magic as every pass bought before October 12th saves you $50. Magic passes are some of the best deals in Vermont, with every pass below $500–about half the cost of most big resorts. Now their passes come with a lot of extras that we don’t have–like CROWDS on the slopes, in the lift lines, and in the lodge! Check out our passes today here and join the Magic Faithful family.
And, if you are loving the outdoors right now, the TimberQuest Park is a fun escape and challenge which has a 15% off deal just by booking online and using the code FB15. So start dealing here at Magic–where the cards are always wild…
As you know, Magic folks try to keep it simple and real. Here it’s all about the sport of skiing, riding and the fun that comes with hanging out with a bunch of highly stoked winter fanatics. Nothing wrong with fancy amenities, we just happen to think the 1700 feet of vertical “amenities” is what it’s all about. And, we feel very few things should get in the way of accessing Magic’s amenities. So the parking lots are close by, the one lodge is centrally located, the crowds at lifts and on the slopes are non-existent, and our prices are affordable.
No doubt most of this industry has gone increasingly upscale in its appeal, but we need to remember that families, college kids, new entries into the work force, military, and seniors all deal with economic issues which can put skiing out of reach for many on a regular basis. So we again kept our regular lift ticket prices the same as the last two years and our season pass prices are still below $500, with no black outs! (Almost all major resorts are now well beyond $1000 for unrestricted season passes. )
And what do you get here for $439?—a pass that pays for itself in just 7 ski days so every day after that is “free”; all-access to southern Vermont’s best terrain from boundary-to-boundary; opportunities to bring guests at reduced rates on Sundays and earn Magic bucks for each new visitor (more to come on this); backstage passes to the most fun, relaxed après ski scene around at the Black Line Pub (well, we really don’t have a backstage); “on-top-of-the-ground” parking just steps from the lodge (how many steps will depend on how early you get here, but no matter what, no shuttle bus required); and, cushioned seats on two bottom-to-top “express” chairlifts covering the 1700’ vertical in well under 15 minutes—just enough time to rest and actually have a conversation with your skiing partner or to meet someone new. Is there more for the $439? Well, that’s up to you, but most have found a second home here—their winter home, with their winter friends. So a Magic Pass sure does seem like a pretty good deal.
