Mt. Baldy in British Columbia's southern Okanagan Valley plans to celebrate its 40th anniversary with retro pricing deals. Lift tickets will be priced at rates more reminiscent of the late 1960s when VW buses chugged up to its lodge.
Plan your trip to the slope for Sundays or Fridays - the days with the ultra-cheap lift tickets. You can buy $12 lift tickets every Sunday afternoon from Jan. 11 to Mar. 29. Friday skiers and snowboarders can take advantage of the resort's Two Can Ski for $42 deal available from Jan. 9 to Mar. 27.
You also can buy two lift tickets for $42 in April. The lift ticket deal is available Apr. 4, 5, and 10-13. Adult full-day lift tickets at the resort are normally $42, making the two-for deals half price.
Borderline Ski Club launched the Mt. Baldy ski area with one T-bar back in 1968. It has expanded since then to include the Eagle Chairlift on Mt. Baldy with 1,293 vertical drop and 18 trails. The resort also grooms trails on McKinney T-bar and the magic carpet as well as the Sugar Lump quad, which opened last year on an adjacent hill. The new lift added access to 10 new trails and glades.
You also can hop the Baldy bus from various locations in the Southern Okanagan to the resort. A round-trip ticket costs $15.
