Delta Airlines coming in with a Killer ski trip options to Anchorage. This is solidly $90 cheaper than the already cheap Alaska deal I posted yesterday out of NYC. You can leave NEXT WEEK if you can't wait for January / February.
PLUS stay MidWeek at the ski-in-ski-out Alyeska Hotel and get two Lift Tickets (per day) free of charge when you use Coupon code: SKIFREE
Boston to Anchorage generally runs $650ish — this saves 50% and gets you there with One-Stop on Delta.
This has to be the best combination of Resort promo and cheap flights that I have seen to Alaska. Not only is the place beautiful but assuming you are bringing yourself and one other person, the price is 100% right as well.
The connections on the cheap dates are also as good as you can ever hope for with one single short stop in Seattle.
The math generally works out to around $80 per person / per day (counting lift and lodging ski-in-ski-out) which is cheaper than we see most of the time at the local east coast resorts.
If Alaska is on your list, now is the time.
Two Free Alyeska Lift Tickets per Day w/Stay Ski-in-Ski-out Hotel MidWeek
Stay Mid Week at the Alyeska Hotel and Alyeska Resort hooks up the lift tickets free of charge. All you have to do is book from the promo page over here and use the Coupon Code : SKIFREE
By far the best incentive package I have seen them post since I started writing deals around this time last year, and it just so happens to coincide with the cheapest Alaska flights I have seen in that same 365 days.
If you plan on bringing 3+ to stay in the room make sure you call ahead. Seems like that works too but there may be an extra fee for more than two people in the same room (as relates to the free Lift Tickets).
Heli Ski Option
And hey, if you can't be bothered with the lift, Heli is a legit option too, you DID save some serious money on the flight after all didn't you?
Cheap Ski + Snowboard Gear Black Friday Deals
So it' Black Friday and I figured I would write up a few deals to try to save enough cash for anyone with X-Mas shopping left to make Alaska a possibility: HBWT Black Friday Ski + Snowboard Deals
That said Spyder.com has 75% off Everything including this killer down hoodie which I picked up for $69.75 (down from $279) using the coupon (code: GBGWINTER75)
In the end I scored $1500 worth of full kit for both myself and the lady and paid $375 TOTAL (Free Shipping, no Tax for me in NJ). Everything is selling out quick due to the Ebay Reseller leaches but there are still some great deals if you spend the time (the site is getting hammered and loading super slow).
Here's one I got for the lady (87.50 down from $350!)
Black Friday Warning
Since these flights popped up today there is always the chance that they are part of the Alaska Airlines Black Friday sale.
Book first and ask questions later.
