Guests of the Northeast Ski & Craft Beer Showcase will have the chance to ski some of the best terrain in Vermont for free this upcoming season.

The first 500 guests attending the event on Friday will receive two-for-one lift tickets to Vermont’s most popular mountains.

The two-for-one lift ticket promotion offers guests tremendous accessibility and flexibility to ski their favorite Vermont mountains during the 2017-18 season, with limited restrictions (excludes major holidays; other restrictions may apply).

Each guest will need to bring their voucher/coupon to the individual mountain’s exhibit booth on Friday, November 3. Only one voucher per person may be redeemed. Each person in each party will receive a two-for-one voucher to a different mountain with paid admission, while supplies last. The mountain will be randomly selected. Children 10 and under are not eligible for the promotion.
