High fives are awesome. Right? Pretty much everyone can agree on that. And usually the occasions we use them to celebrate are pretty sweet too—stomping a clean 360 in the park, discovering an untouched powder stash, pooling just enough coin from your jacket pockets for a hot chocolate—you get the idea. Stratton's Hi-5 Card is no different. It's the Vermont resort's new season pass alternative that will have you swapping behind-the-back low fives with complete strangers in the lift line.

The new Hi-5 Card offers superior flexibility to the commitment of a full-on season pass. The Card comes loaded with five days of skiing or riding, with no blackouts and no restrictions, for just $299. That's less than $60 a day to ski or ride, even on holidays. Use your five days up and simply reload at continued savings, but hurry. The Hi-5 Card is only available to buy before November 26.

Want more flexibility? Short of a yoga class, you won't find more than Stratton's classic X2 Card. Here's how it works: Purchase your X2 Card by November 26 for just $79, which includes a free day of skiing. It's automatically linked to your credit card, which means you can skip the ticket window the rest of the season and head straight to the lift, scan and ski. And you'll never pay full price for a lift ticket, all season long. Save $30 off midweek (non-holiday), $20 off weekend (non-holiday) and $10 off holiday period skiing and riding. 

Blackout dates for the X2 include: 12/26-1/1/2013, 1/19-21/2013, 2/16-22,2013. That's a small price to pay for the pass that pays for itself in one visit. High fives to that.
