LUDLOW, Vt. – John Wanamaker, of Philadelphia department store fame, is credited with the invention of the January White Sale in 1878, but Okemo Mountain Resort has reinvented the white sale with some great value when it comes to enjoying the overstock of white snow received recently.
When skiers and riders purchase lift tickets online at Okemo.com, at least 48 hours in advance, they can get the following four great deals:
Lift and Lunch – There is such a thing as free lunch! When skiers and riders pre-purchase a full-price, single-day lift ticket, valid Monday through Friday, Jan. 2-Feb. 1, (excluding Jan. 21) Okemo serves up lunch for FREE! The pre-paid lunch coupon ($15 value) is valid at any culinary location on the mountain the same day the lift ticket is issued. Skiers and riders can present their print-at-home ticket at any Okemo Resort Services Desk to collect their free-lunch voucher.
Kids Rock FREE – When an adult pre-purchases a full-price lift ticket between Jan. 2-18, they get one free Junior ticket or one free Young Adult ticket, valid the same day. The child receiving the free ticket must be present at redemption and this offer is limited to one free ticket per paying adult. Complimentary lift tickets are available for all children 6 and younger every day at Okemo.
Two-Day Weekend Warrior – Skiers and riders get the best rates on January 5-6 and January 12-13, when they pre-purchase a multi-day weekend (Sat. and Sun.) lift ticket online in advance. This two-day ticket is just $99 for two full days of skiing and riding at Okemo.
MLK Online Ticket Offer – When skiers and riders celebrate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at Okemo, they can pre-purchase a special holiday three-day lift ticket valid January 19, 20 and 21, for just $185 for adults (a $61 savings); $160 for young adults (a $56 savings); and $125 for juniors (a $43 savings).
