Thinking about skiing Stowe this winter? Don't want to pay the full $80-something day ticket price? Then you may want to check out this promotion if you are planning on hitting Burlington, Vt., this month.
People who eat or shop in participating establishments on the famous Church Street Marketplace in Burlington can earn a free Stowe Points Card. You just have to drop at least $25 at a store or café. If you are planning a Burlington outing anyways, might as well take advantage of this perk. The card gives you a bit of a break on their bold ticket prices; with it you can ski for $59 adult, $51 junior, $54 senior.
Also, new for this year, you can apply what you spend on Church Street and apply it toward some of their season passes at Stowe.
In both cases, receipts must be dated between September 5 and October 5.
This Friday, September 5, happens to be the funky South End Art Hop. Why not make a night of it by visiting the Marketplace first?
