There's nothing wrong with being frugal, especially when it comes to the high cost of skiing and riding. Thankfully, Shawnee Mountain has your inner miser in mind with their prepaid savings cards — on sale until December 24, 2013.

Miser Passes start at $125 and are valid for five midweek days (non-holiday) from open to close or any nights throughout the season. Need rentals? Include them in your Miser Pass for an extra $75. Maxi-Miser Passes ($99) are good for any three days of the season (including weekends and holidays) from open to close. $156 gets you three any day lift tickets, plus rentals.

Come from a long line of misers? No problem, these passes are transferable between immediate family members. Just make sure you hurry. 20http://www.shawneemt.com/tickets-passes/discounts_deals.html" target="_blank">Purchase online by December 24.
