For the 2008-2009 ski season Steamboat Springs is offering free lift tickets from opening day on Nov. 26 through Christmas Day if you book a minimum three-night stay.

The offer is good for skiers and snowboarders who book through Steamboat Central Reservations before opening day with a $50 refundable deposit, with the stay completed by Dec. 25.

Lift tickets are per person, with a limit of two people per bedroom, and are valid one day less than nights stayed.
