Spring is right around the corner and soon the slopes of the local ski areas will devoid of snow and bustling with golf, mountain biking or other activities. However, this is the best time to think about next year. Most of our local ski areas and resorts are now selling their season passes for next year at reduced prices and some special perks. If you are a new season pass holder at most of the resorts, you can ski for free for the rest of the year. Some of the resorts are offering gift cards to snow sports enthusiast that renew their pass for next season now.

I have researched the deals for the local resorts for March. For the break-even point, I have used the regular adult season pass and made calculations using the weekday lift ticket rate for this year.
