Trips to the mountain are expensive -- even before you throw in lift tickets, rentals and lessons. Spending a few hours in the car means stopping for food and gas, and with oil prices what they are, a few trips from the city to Vermont's Northeast Kingdom will burn a sizable hole in any skiers pocket. Carpooling is always a good option to help curb the cost and this winter, Iriving is helping customers get an even bigger break at the pump, by earning a free lift ticket for their loyal patronage.

When mountain-bound road warriors fill up three (3) times with any grade of Irving gasoline, including diesel, they can receive a 2-for-1 lift ticket voucher, usable at two dozen resorts throughout New England. Just don't forget to press "YES" to get a copy of your receipt and run inside to get a lift ticket voucher added to your stub.

Once you've collected 3 receipts from recent fill ups (10-gallon minimum, US, or 35 liters, Canada), bring the voucher and attached receipts to any participating ski resort and when you buy one lift ticket, you’ll get a 2nd one for free. Vouchers are good only at participating ski resorts and date restrictions may apply.

Receipts must be dated between December 1, 2012 and March 3, 2013. Offer expires on April 30, 2013.
