“Tips up!” by day—the secret to successful powder skiing…

“Bottoms up!” by night—because you deserve a few after the black diamond day you’ve had…

“Lie down before you fall down!” no matter the hour—this applies to out of control skiers and partiers, alike... 

These are just a few of the ski town adages we live by.  Here’s one more: “Come early, stay late!”  Deals abound in every category early in the ski season.  2-for-1 restaurant deals can be had for the asking; lodging is available at rates lower than summer and gets cheaper the longer you stay, so make a week of it; lift tickets are a fraction of what they are during the rest of the season; holiday shopping galore, and not a mall in sight.  No kidding—we don’t do franchise!  (Check out the street view, if you don’t believe it.)  The only tread you’ll need to worry about is what’s on your boots.  High heels and cars are not recommended here!  Hallelujah.  Repeat for Spring Season.
