It's usually difficult to get into Portland for less than $300 let alone less than $200. This gets you there with a single stop, just in time to take some laps on Mt. Hood to warm up your legs for Winter 17/18.
Boston to Portland generally runs $350 - $400. This gets you there on American Airlines for 50% less than the normal price.
While American DOES charge for bags ($25 / $35) they DO NOT add something extra / insane for Skis or Snowboards, or kill you with $50 bag fees like Frontier / Norwegian / Spirit.
That means the total net ticket price for this deal with American will be dramatically cheaper than what you would booking a ticket of equal value through Spirit or Frontier (both of whom charge more for baggage AND for skis).
Ski + Snowboard

I could 100% go for a little of that about now.
How does this site work?
For those who haven't run into one of our deals before, and are wondering who we are and what we do....
We Search for flights to killer ski, surf, skate and snowboard destinations leaving from Boston, all day, every day.
Airlines drop their prices or start a promotion to dump inventory, sell more seats or promote a new route. Occasionally they also post price mistakes.
We send subscribers a deal alert to let them know there is a killer deal to a great ski / snow destination.
You book your flight with Google Flights, SkyScanner, Travelocity or the travel site you like best.
You can Subscribe for Free to receive alerts when we find new Boston Ski + Snowboard Trip deals. We make money if you love what we do and decide to upgrade to a paid subscription in the future.
