USAToday: Christmas deals on the ski slopes

12/18/2012 by Laura Bly

With winter storm Draco dumping up to three feet of fresh powder across the Rockies this week, skiers and snowboarders already have reason to rejoice. And holiday procrastinators in search of last-minute specials have another: Liftopia's new sale offers discounted Christmas Eve and Christmas Day lift tickets at more than 200 mountain resorts across North America.

Sample prices include $47.99 for Arapahoe Basin and $64 for Copper Mountain in Colorado (both a 39% savings), $58.99 for Utah's Snowbasin and Snowbird (a 28% and 31% savings, respectively) and $45 for California's Sierra at Tahoe (a 42% savings).
