Vail Resorts announces several innovative programs, from ski and ride school to dining, equipment rentals to season passes, designed to offer great values for skiers and riders all season long.
Last season, Vail Resorts provided a $50 credit on baggage fees for skis and snowboards and this year the Company is going one better. Guests can leave their skis and snowboards at home, avoiding Baggage fees on airlines, because rentals are free with this package. The Free Skis & Boards package features lift tickets and a free ski and snowboard sports rental package per person for up to seven days at the retail locations of Vail Sports, Beaver Creek Sports, Breckenridge Sports, Keystone Sports and Heavenly Sports, as well as lodging in a Vail Resorts property or third-party lodging sponsor at Heavenly.
The package must be purchased by Dec. 1, 2009, and is not valid from Dec. 28, 2009-Jan. 4, 2010, and Jan. 15-18, 2010. It is based on a two-night minimum stay.
