This winter, Ski Areas of New York (SANY) are rolling out three great deals to encourage travelers to discover New York’s ski areas. New York has over 50 ski resorts, more than any other state in the country, ideal for everyone from beginner to expert skiers and snowboarders.  Equally important, as any northeast ski enthusiast knows, New York’s ski areas are meticulously maintained. They pride themselves on using the latest technology to provide the finest facilities and winter experiences. This year, New York ski resorts have invested millions of dollars in everything from new high speed lifts and improved snow-making, to children’s programming.

Following are SANY’s  2013/2014 winter season offers:

Holiday Valley (anytime) and HoliMont (weekdays only) will offer $12 Lift Tickets on December 19, 2013 and January 9, 2014,  when 10,000 skiers per day will be able to take advantage of $12 lift tickets through the Discover New York Skiing promotion at 26 participating ski areas across the state. Organized SANY, the promotion is an expansion of last year’s popular 10-10-10 one-day deal. Tickets must be reserved and paid in advance and are the perfect start to a long weekend getaway.

SANY is offering free lift tickets and learn to ski packages for young skiers and snowboarders throughout the 2013-2014 winter ski season at Holiday Valley and 24 other ski areas across the state.

Passes in the form of a Passport must be obtained in advance, and there’s a $22 processing fee for the season. For details, visit (external link).
