Karl Stone of Ski NH says that Ski NH's Anywhere, Anytime Lift Ticket Packages offer skiing and riding at $10-to-$16 off weekend and holiday lift ticket rates.

"Ski NH Anywhere, Anytime packages allow you to save on weekend/holiday skiing when other deals don't apply and can be shared with family and friends," Stone told OnTheSnow.

The deal gets even better, Stone says, since anyone who buys 12 or more tickets also gets another free ticket, up to the value of the highest-priced ticket purchased.

That offer is good until Oct. 31, he says.

Here how the Anywhere, Anytime Lift Ticket Packages work. Skiers and snowboarders can buy a mix of tickets to the New Hampshire areas of their choice, in six price categories.

Tickets for Bretton Woods and Loon cost $65. Tickets for Attitash, Mount Sunapee, and Waterville Valley cost $55. Tickets for Cannon Mountain, Gunstock Mountain Resort, Ragged Mountain, and Wildcat Mountain cost $53. Tickets for Cranmore, Crotched Mountain, and Pats Peak cost $43. Tickets for Balsams Wilderness, Black Mountain, Dartmouth Skiway, Granite Gorge Ski Area, and King Pine cost $30. Tickets for McIntyre Ski Area cost $20.

 The tickets can be shared with family and friends. They are valid any day of the 2010-11 season, including weekends and holidays, with no blackouts.

Attitash, Balsams Wilderness, Black Mountain, Bretton Woods, Cannon Mountain, Cranmore Mountain, Crotched Mountain, Dartmouth Skiway, Granite Gorge, Gunstock Mountain Resort, King Pine Ski Area, Loon Mountain , McIntyre Ski Area, Mount Sunapee, Pats Peak, Ragged Mountain, Waterville Valley, and Wildcat Mountain are part of the deal.

Quantities are limited, Stone advises, so skiers and riders should buy sooner rather than later to get tickets to the areas of their choice.
