Serenity Vacations is pleased to bring you this article about how to find the very best deals on ski vacations this year. Skiing is one of the world’s most popular winter sports and vacation travel options abound. As anyone knows why has been on a ski
vacation, they can be some of the most expensive vacations around.

However, with a little planning a ski vacation does not have to break your bank account. There is actually an abundance of affordable ski vacation deals available if you take the time to look and to follow a few simple strategies.

Plan Ahead

Getting a jump on the season and booking your ski vacation early is one of the best ways to save money. As we have all probably experienced at one time or another, last minute bookings make it incredibly hard to find the most desirable and affordable travel destinations and hotels.
Instead of waiting until the last minute, once the snow is already
falling and the slopes are already getting crowded, start seeking out
your ski vacation in the summer time. Also during the summer months many
resorts are anxious for income and offer the best promotions and least
expensive deals in hopes of attracting customers for the upcoming
season.

Plan your Ski Vacation Early or Late in the Season

Planning your ski vacation early or late in the season is another great way to get the very best prices. Late fall and early spring are typically warmer times of the year with less snow and smaller crowds at ski resorts. The resorts themselves as well as travel agencies are most likely to offer the very best prices and packaged deals during that time of the year.

Avoid the “Big Name” Resorts

Unfortunately, “Big Names” often mean even bigger prices. While the biggest and most popular ski resorts offer their share of the fun, many smaller and less known ski resorts offer all the thrills you need at greatly reduced prices. Often times those smaller
ski resorts offer more intimacy for romantic trips and less chaos for
those traveling with children.

Use the Internet

The internet is a great place to book any vacation. There has been a continuing trend for years now to offer “internet only” specials as the internet offers automated systems, thereby saving travel companies enormous costs associated with traditional bookings through travel agencies or by having to take phone calls.

Come and ski with us! 

Killington also known as the “Beast of the East”, is the largest ski resort on the East Coast. 
Vermontology’s “Ski Vermont” package is a 4-day 5-night skiing/snowboarding tour that includes both Killington and Pico mountains. With this package, customers will be driven to each resort in our tour van (6 customers max), staying each night at the Summit Lodge in Killington, VT. Lift tickets, three-course dinners, full breakfasts, and transportation from hotel to the mountain are included. Killington and Pico resorts are close to each other, so we can drive you to either one. The choice is yours!

Everything here is right and I'll add two ideas. Skiing late in the season is better than early in the season because the light is better. New England where I live is not Aspen or Whistler: The ski areas here are mostly for weekenders so they offer great deals and uncrowded trails during the week. Thats the sweet spot. Are there other areas like that where the weekdays are so much better than the weekends?
