Let's face it, everyone likes an opportunity to stretch their dollar a little further. Right now Swain Resort is offering a killer investment opportunity for New York skiers and riders. By purchasing a 2014/15 season pass before April 1, not only will you save nealy 50 percent off the standard rate, but you'll ski all of the 2013/14 spring season for free. Passes are available at $299 for adults through March 31, 2014 ($550 after that date).

The resort offers a flexible payment plan, so you can put just $100 down to lock in this great deal and pay it off with two future installments. But, if you pay in full by March 31, you'll also enjoy a complimentary summer golf package at a local resort. As your unofficial ski counsel we strongly advise you to invest. More info.
