They always say the more you put into something, the more you get out of it. While that's definitely true for skiers and riders on a skills level, it doesn't mean you always have to spend more to get more enjoyment out of the season.

With frequent skier cards from Whiteface, Sugarloaf, Sunday River and Loon, 'regulars' can enjoy kickbacks on lift tickets the more often they visit the slopes. And at Mount Southington, skiers who make a four-day commitment to the resort, will get an extra day in return. They call it a discount, we call it reciprocity.
