Eight resorts now open; and Catamount Trail member savings

Mother Nature has been cooperating with Vermont ski resorts by allowing for some serious snowmaking to take place recently. And, some snow squalls added a bit of natural snow to the mix today. <link post when-do-vermont-ski-resorts-open-for-the-2010-2011-season external-link-new-window>Eight ski resorts are now open in Vermont — most with limited intermediate and expert terrain.

Gets a skier in the mood for skiing off some of their holiday overindulgence, and for saving some dough! On that note, I received my Catamount Trail Association member coupon booklet earlier this month and it's already paid for itself!

I bought new sneakers at 10% off (and sneakers aren't cheap these days!) and I got a 20% discount for my cross-country skiing pass at Catamount Outdoor Center. And I have dozens more coupons to use this winter and spring at ski resorts, nordic centers, shops, restaurants and more!Catamount Trail coupons

If you are not familiar with the nonprofit Catamount Trail Association (CTA), well, you should be. For a membership of $35 for one person, or $50 for a couple, you are doing two things:

  1. preserving an amazing 300-mile-long cross-country / backcountry ski trail that runs the entire length of Vermont; and
  2. getting yourself some darn good deals with the member coupon booklet

What's in the booklet? 95 coupons for discounts at 30 nordic ski and mountain bike centers, 8 alpine resorts, 21 sport retailers, and 25 other restaurants, inns, and health-oriented businesses. Most of the nordic coupons are two-for-one skiing deals.

Of note: If you buy the two-person/family membership you get two coupon booklets.

It's time to become a CTA member, no?
