Winter sports are expensive. So whenever a great deal shows up, I love to share it!
And it’s especially nice when I can offer a generous giveaway, too.
Get Gas, Go Skiing
For the past 12 winters, Shell gas stations across the country have partnered with SKI FREE to offer steep lift tickets discounts at over 30 resorts. Fill up your vehicle with at least 10 gallons of fuel and you can get a voucher good for buy-one-get-one-free-lift tickets at resorts in Colorado, New Mexico, California, Nevada, and Michigan.
This year, there are 35 participating resorts. Newcomers for the 2014 SKI FREE program include Taos and Angel Fire in New Mexico.
Plus, for those who don’t ski or ride, First Ascent Mountain School is offering buy-one/get-one snowshoe tours, while Nova Guides is offering buy-one/get-one snowmobile tours.
Participating gas stations are in California, Colorado, Michigan, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, Ohio, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.
For a full list of resorts and Shell stations, visit www.skifreedeals.com.
We’ve used these vouchers several times at Crested Butte and Copper Mountain, Colorado and they are a great deal. There’s only one tricky part. You have to get a receipt and have it initialed and stapled to the voucher at the Shell station. Don’t just pay at the pump and leave.
Some resorts have blackout dates, some do not. But all the details are available on the vouchers or online. You do have to buy two tickets (one full price, one free) for two people on one day. You can’t buy a ticket for one day and ski free the next.
The program runs through April 21st or the closing day at each resort.
You’ve got to buy gas anyway, so it’s a screaming deal!
Four Lift Tickets to Giveaway
SKI FREE has very kindly donated four (4) FREE lift tickets to your choice of:
- Crested Butte, Colorado,
- Copper Mountain, Colorado,
- Taos, New Mexico or
- Angel Fire, New Mexico.
Please note these are four free tickets, not buy-one/get-one vouchers.
One winner will be chosen randomly from all entries on Tuesday, February 18th.
To facilitate this giveaway, SKI FREE donated four free lift tickets to the winner’s choice of one of four resorts. I received no compensation or lift tickets for this post. All opinions are my own and are based on my experience using Shell SKI FREE vouchers in the past.
This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to Janna!
