  • Check internet sites like orbitz, priceline and Travelocity. They bring out fresh deals every season and can offer excellent possible discounts.

  • Contact the winter resort and check on the various deals they offer.

  • Weekends are crowded and expensive when compared to weekdays during the holiday season; hence avoid planning your holiday for the weekend.

  • Book early - early birds always get the best deals.

  • Try to collect the brochures of the winter resort and understand the pricing structure. Winter resorts may charge different rates for different age groups.

  • If you choose a winter ski resort, check for package deals including lift tickets, poles, beginner skis, boots, etc.
