The linked resort Evasion Mont Blanc is offering a deal on season passes purchased before Nov. 15, 2009. By preparing ahead of time of the resort's opening date, Dec. 19, 2009, it is possible to save 25 percent on pass prices. An adult season Evasion Mont Blanc pass will then cost 486€ instead of 661€ for a saving of 175€.

Children's passes are also available for 390€ instead of 530€ and senior citizens' passes are at 437€ instead of 596€ if bought before Nov. 15.

This pass opens the pistes to six resorts of the Evasion Mont Blanc ski area: Saint Gervais, Saint Nicolas de Véroce, Les Contamines Montjoie, Megève, Combloux, and La Giettaz.

Since not everyone has the time to conquer mountains after the work day, it is possible to order passes. To do so, simply download the order form from the resort Web site and mail it before Nov. 15. Passes can also be purchased directly on the Web site.

If however a stroll through the thermal town of Saint Gervais sounds tempting, passes are also available at the Saint Gervais tourism office.

Because sweet little extras make everyone smile, the resort will pay for shipping fees and throw in Ski Découverte Haute Savoie coupons. These let skiers hit the pistes in three different resorts in France's Haute Savoie department. The resort will also include a surprise gift, all of which will be mailed with the season passes.
