1. Find a ski group in your area.
I googled “Ski Club Pittsburgh.” A bunch of things came up. Some organizations you had to join and commit to a bunch of trips to get discounted lift tickets. But then I found Like2Ski. I got in touch with the woman in charge, and she let me know that the group has Sunday Twilight session lift tickets and rentals for anyone who wants to go. If you’d like to get on their e-mail blast, contact me at femmefrugality at gmail dot com and I’ll get you the info you need. So, if you’re not in Pittsburgh, google “ski club [your city here.]” Let us know what you find!

2. Check with your Student Life office.
If there’s a ski resort nearby, odds are your school either has a ski/board club or is organizing a school trip. CCAC Main Campus has two trips every year. The fall semester trip is December 20. The $20 fee gets you a lift ticket for the night session, a ski or board rental, and the bus trip up there. Twenty dollars? Seriously. To go, contact the student life office. If you’re not a CCAC student, contact your own student life office to see what they may offer you.
3. Check their website for special deals.
At Seven Springs, you can do this in two places. This year they have daily deals. It works a lot like groupon. Buy it now for 50% off, use it later. (Although later could be later this afternoon.) The other place you can check is under their special offers.
So poke around your own resort’s webpage. You may be surprised at what you find.
