With the first flake of winter, ski enthusiasts can not wait for the chance to hit that first slope. However even the best enthusiast can be sidelined by the limits of their schedules, and how far they can travel. For many this is even more crucial with the current job market. One of the best resources online is onthesnow.com, not only does it show lift ticket and season pass deals, it gives conditions and multiple reviews of each and every ski resort in Ohio; as well as many other states.
From Mad River Mountains female specific lessons to Boston Mills and Brandywine's Youth specific programs, it covers them all. When you click on a resort, you have the option to check out reviews, options, and even deals at the specific locations, which are updated on a weekly basis. In some of the locations they even showed two for one days for the budget minded. All in all, finding a place and a location is always worth a little research. Pay attention to the reviews and don't hesitate to make a few phone calls before deciding on your destination. In a pinch however, don't be afraid to try out a new place if you have to.
You might find your new favorite downhill, or at least a good alternative.
