College Students: Ski, Stay & Save

November 30, 2013

College Students Can Ski, Stay and Save this Winter at Waterville Valley Resort – Packages from as little as $79 per person, per night

This just in from the Black Bear Lodge (and as the parent of college students with skiing friends, I’m excited!)…

There is good news for college students who want to get away and ski this winter with friends, but may be on a budget.

Waterville Valley Resort’s Black Bear Lodge has teamed up with Waterville Valley Ski Resort to offer college students an affordable option.

The deal works like this:  Book a suite at the Black Bear Lodge for a midweek stay and get  20% off your room rate PLUS discounted lift tickets to ski and ride at Waterville Valley. All you need to do is provide a valid college ID at check-in.

Prices start at $79 per person, per night based on 4-person occupancy (including all taxes and fees).  This special rate is available non-holiday week days (Sunday through Thursday) from December 16, 2013 – April 3, 2014; and, for big groups, complimentary lift tickets are available.

The Black Bear Lodge is a service oriented, well-appointed all-suite hotel with one-bedroom condominiums perfect for students.  Suites comfortably sleep four to six people and each suite features a fully equipped kitchen, dining/living area, full bath and separate bedroom. Lodge amenities include an indoor/outdoor heated pool, sauna, whirlpool and game room.  Full resort services are only a short walk or shuttle bus ride away.

Waterville Valley Resort offers 250 skiable acres with snowmaking ability on every trail. The ski area peaks at 4,004 feet, with a vertical drop of 2,020 feet, 52 trails and 12 lifts.
