Going on a trip to the mountains for some fresh air and great skiing or snowboarding can be a great way to decompress, spend quality time with family, or make good memories with friends. However, full-price lift tickets and rentals can get pricey, especially if you want to go more than once or twice a year.
Don’t let the price tag you’re picturing in your mind keep you from planning a vacation to New Mexico’s slopes this year. Traveling early in the season can save you some serious cash while letting you hit the powder before most people get started!
