While the offers are very similar to last season’s with free nights, free lift tickets and free upgrades rather than outright discounts, there are more of them, he said. 'We have more for January, more for spring break, and even more for the December holidays than in recent memory."

"Now this is a deal," says Dan Sherman, director of communications for Ski.com. 'Third night free: I've never seen a deal like that at Little Nell.' From Nov. 25 to Dec. 15, Ski.com offers a package for $502 per person, which includes a 3rd night free and a 2-day lift ticket. This iconic hotel is one of the best ski- in, ski-out hotels out there. "After a day of skiing, I love sitting by the fire in the lobby, having a drink, and watching the world go by. It's a great place to be seen and see people" says Sherman. And with the airport right in Aspen, this hassle-free getaway begins as soon as the plane lands. Find more snowy steals at www.ski.com.

"While the website draws clients, the heart of the company's services is still the more than 75 "mountain vacation specialists" who have the enviable task of experiencing the ins and outs of scores of ski resorts. "That's what really differentiates us is we do have a great website with lots of information, but we encourage our clients to call in and talk to our agents who have experience on average of about 15 years,' said Ski.com CEO Harry Peisach. "They know every property. They know every resort very well."
