When Magic Mountain in Vermont comes to mind most people will say something like, “It’s classic, old-fashioned skiing with no crowds, no unnecessary glitzy resort stuff, no obnoxious skiers who don’t know what they’re doing, no bull. It is just a great resort for real skiing and riding.” It’s a wonderful resort, simple as that, and they set out to prove that to you by offering 2-for-1 lift tickets all season long, valid every day but holidays. Since 1962 New Englanders have been making the trek to the Magic Mountain to enjoy the fun both on and off the slopes.
We all love to ski and ride during the winter, but there are tons of other great activities on the mountain that can be just as much fun and less of a hassle. Lift tickets can be costly, skiing can be exhausting, and keeping track of everyone can be stressful. For savvy and adventurous winter lovers, taking a day off away from insane lift lines and crowds can be a rare blessing. Here are some fantastic deals on some of our favorite winter activities.
