One benefit of being awash in snow, so to speak, is extending your ski season, which is exactly what Wisconsin’s Whitecap Mountain has done.

Originally announced to close March 2, Whitecap extended its season to at least March 16, and for good reason: in the last seven days alone, it’s been hit with more than 18" of snow topping a 40" base.

A three-day, quad occupancy package including three lift tickets (at the window, $135), three night’s lodging ($435), plus three breakfasts, two dinners and one group ski lesson, worth well over $600, is just $199 per person, saving you at least 65 percent.
