Killington, Jackson Hole Resort Areas added to Member Directory

As we open new sections of the directories and resort towns new deals and merchants keep coming in. Today we just turned Killington live with a commitment from The Cortina Inn. This is and has been one of my favorites to stay in for decades. A true value for those heading to the Killington Pico area.

Earlier this week I was in Summit County and stayed at The New Summit Inn. They are currently listed, but the deals are up in the air. If you are headed there tell them you saw their listing at and they will extend an offer. In Frisco the classic lodge on Main Street The Frisco Lodge just came online and they are extending benefits to our club members. This historic lodge is a real gem, cozy and friendly right on main street.

To add depth to member benefits we just added these 3 sports shops - High Trail Sports, High Summit Sports and High Road Sports. Value vouchers are now posted online with savings on purchases and rentals.

Jackson Hole becomes another resort addition with member values now available at the Alpenhof Lodge nesteled in the heart of Teton Village. Next town will be Hunter Mountain outside of New York in the Catskill Mountains.

Exciting new deals and partners - shops, stores, resort groups....

Been a while since the last post, but not because nothing is happening. Site is starting to build out and deals are coming in. Just got shop deals on purchases and services at the following - Sun and Ski Sports 16 stores 6 states and their web sites. Also Ski Chalet 3 stores in DC/VA, then Alpine Sports Outlet, Boulder Outdoor Center in Boulder and Steamboat Ski & Bike Kare.

Several other deals are for in store and for online shopping, with several more vendors soon to close. We will have hundreds of dollars in savings for online shopping by the time we get to the Fall. This is a huge value add from the old Ski Card days.

On the resort front I have gotten a signed partnership with INSA and Washington areas on enclsoing a coupon for a FREE membership with all Passports. There are other association programs we will do this with as well. I will start building resort and state areas there and for New Hampshire next. Today SKI NH committed to the same promotional passport program as the resorts in the NorthWest.

Merchant, lodging and resort deals are starting to come in. Make sure your resort is listed and providing your promotional offers for this coming winter season. It is not far away.

Initial Travel Desk Partner is Whitewood Tours. Welcome and look for more travel desk news to come. This now combines with to give us winter and summer product offerings.
