[R184R, Hunter Mountain] in New York State's Catskill Mountains is offering the 3X Card, good for three full days of skiing or riding, for $99.

Here's the deal: The 3X Card is for three separate visits, good Monday through Sunday all season long, with three holiday blackout periods. Due to the overwhelming response, 3X Cards will be available until Dec. 24, and that's it. Purchase is limited to one card per person. This card is valid only for the person whose name it is purchased in.  Proof of ID may be required at the time of redemption.

The 3X Card is not valid for skiing or riding on the following holiday periods: Dec. 25 - Jan 3; Jan 16-18; or Feb 13-21.

Hunter Mountain calls itself the "Snowmaking Capital of the World." The resort makes snow early, often, and in large quantities, so the moniker is on the mark. The area also is known for the large numbers of singles it draws from the New York Metro areas. Food offerings are atypical and blaze new culinary trails. You might even find sushi on the menu. The Kaatskill Mountain Club is a big draw. Located slopeside, it has 109 rooms, an indoor-outdoor pool with a spa and restaurant, and a health club and fitness center.
