NORTH WOODSTOCK, NH, DECEMBER 2013 – With the holidays quickly approaching, family and friends are searching for gifts geared towards skiers and snowboarders. Ski NH’s Anywhere, Anytime Lift Ticket Packages offer one of the best gift ideas, especially for those that ski primarily on weekends and during holiday periods. The tickets offer savings of up to $26 off weekend & holiday rates at Ski NH member ski areas. The packages consist of the purchaser’s choice of fully-transferable lift tickets that are valid every day of the 2013-14 ski season. New for this season purchasers have the convenient option of printing their tickets at home or work, ideal for last-minute shopping.
Customers can choose their favorite ski areas or customize a mix of lift tickets to two or more ski areas; tickets are broken down into five price categories of $22, $32, $47, $60 and $70 per ticket. Packages begin at a minimum of six lift tickets and can be purchased in any increment above that. Ski areas included in the offer are Loon Mountain, Bretton Woods (sold out), Cannon Mountain (sold out), Waterville Valley, Mount Sunapee, Gunstock Mountain Resort, Cranmore Mountain, Pats Peak, Ragged Mountain, Black Mountain, King Pine Ski Area, Dartmouth Skiway, Granite Gorge, and McIntyre Ski Area.

The 4th and 5th Grade Snowsports Passport program is available to any 4th or 5th grade student, regardless of location. The passport costs $35, with a portion donated to the Make-a-Wish Foundation of New Hampshire.
