Last season, Jay Peak Resort dropped the bomb on skiers and riders, and their preconceived notions that ski trips to Vermont had to be cold. A brand new 20 million dollar indoor waterpark, heated to a generous 80+ degrees, thawed out families by the thousands and made even the most diehard ski bums admit they'd come for the snow, but stayed for the surf. If somehow you missed this massive glass-sided expansion, you can get it all again this year, and even save a few bucks if you book before Oct. 15.

Book a stay any time between Dec. 25, 2012 and March 30, 2013 and save 10 percent on any three-night stay or 15 percent on stays of four nights or more. Discounts are available on Ski + Stay, Splash + Stay, or Ski + Splash + Stay packages (clearly the one we recommend). The only catch is you have to book before Oct. 15, 2012. There are a limited number of packages available at these discounted rates and they're going quickly. Don't let someone else snatch up your dream vacation at a steal.
