Skiing doesn't have to be a rich man's sport. Armed with the right information, you can save yourself enough money to buy a few more days on the slopes. Once the word was out that we were putting together our annual "Best Bargains" piece, SKI Magazine was bombarded with great deals. From free lessons and low-priced lift-and-lodging packages to cheap eats and deeply discounted helicopter skiing, the deals abound—you just have to know how to sniff them out. Our goal was to find bargains that squeeze more skiing out of fewer dollars. We found so many that we decided to limit the pool to 100 and put the rest on the web. Check out additional savings at www.skimag.com.
