Black Friday kicks off one of the busiest shopping periods of the year with sales galore and bargains out the wazoo. The folks at Mountain Creek are joining the madness by offering their own holiday special for slope-bound shoppers this season and just like Black Friday, this deal comes but once a year.

The "Triple Play" card offers three full-day, anytime lift tickets for just $79.99 (a $192 value). That's a deal even Santa can't beat.

This early-bird rate is only good through Nov. 27—prices increase to $89.99 after that date.

Triple Play cards are available at Mountain Creek, on the web and at 28 Sports Authority stores in New Jersey and New York through Dec. 24.

Mountain Creek has invested more than $20 million dollars in resort improvements this season, including the state-of-the-art, 55,000 square foot Red Tail Lodge and all-new Drop Zone Snow Tube Park—the largest snow tubing facility in the country. Combine that with a jam-packed events calendar and Triple Play Card recipients have tons of reasons to rejoice this season.

Mountain Creek also offers season passes to fit a variety of lifestyles and budgets. Vist mountaincreek.com for more info.
