One of the best parts of a college student's existence (aside from the endless parties and lack of responsibilities) is their winter breaks. For weeks on end they can rest their scholarly synapses, ditch the books and live off their parents until classes resume. Lucky for students, and their parents, Canaan Valley is offering a special ski and stay package that gets them out of the house and on the slopes for a price that even a college student's budget can afford. 

The College Break Students Package includes nightly lodging in a queen or double room, daily breakfast, next-day lift ticket, daily ski equipment rental, $2 discount coupon toward snowtubing session (two hour) and Beech Club privileges, which includes access to indoor pool, fitness center, whirlpool & saunas. More perks than a book club and a better night's sleep than one could ever get on the library sofas.

The price? Let's just say it's far more reasonable than any tuition out there at just $64 per person, per night (double occupancy/non-holiday).

Most students spend more than that on books for the upcoming semester. Isn't it time your money went into something more fun? Besides, you never get back what you paid for those texts. Just don't freak out when you see your 8:30 Physics professor on the chairlift in front of you.

This package is valid for all students and faculty members with a valid ID during the following dates: Dec. 25-27, 2012 (daily), Jan. 1-17, 2013 (daily), Jan. 21 to Feb. 28, 2013 (midweek) and March 3-17, 2013 (daily).
