Skiers and riders on a budget can get lift and lodging at Panorama Mountain Resort for $72 per person.

Been itching to launch into Taynton Bowl to ski the lauded Never Never Land or huck your stuff in Panorama's Showoff Terrain Park, but couldn't afford the lodging and lift ticket? Panorama Mountain Resort is now running a deal for the budget-minded traveler.

The deal gives you lodging and a lift ticket for the price of a regular $72 adult full day lift ticket. It's called the "Your Room Is Free" package.

The package costs $72 CAD per person per day-the same price as a regular adult lift ticket. The deal requires a two-night minimum stay for two people. It is valid until Apr. 12 and available on weekdays or weekends.

Lodging for this package is at the Pine Inn, Panorama's budget hotel located right at the base of Mile One Quad. Rooms include full bath, cable TV, and coffee maker. The inn also houses a deli, restaurant, and bar. The package also includes admission to the Panorama Springs Hot Pools.

Panorama adds more value to this package by adjusting their lift hours after Mar. 8. Lifts open a half hour later at 9:30 a.m., but run until 5 p.m.

Call 800-663-2929 for information and ask for the "Your Room Is Free" package.
