Ski & Stay Giveaway

Are you a skier? Considering a ski vacation?

Check out Ski & Stay Headquarters. Based in Lehigh Valley, PA (2 hours north of Philadelphia), Ski & Stay offers three winter experience packages, featuring two Headquarter Hotels and two mountain areas.

The three packages are Ski and Stay Experience, Tube and Stay Experience and Brew-Ski Package. The packages start at $199 per night. Each of the three packages include the following:

Overnight Accommodations
All day/night lift tickets
$20 Food Voucher
Breakfast for Two

The Headquarter Hotels are the Holiday Inn Lehigh Valley and Courtyard by Marriott Bethlehem.

As I was reading through the amenities, I was struck by the S'moresgabord that is offered at the Holiday Inn. On Friday and Saturday nights, they light the fire pits for roasting marshmallows and provide a toppings bar complete with chocolate, sprinkles, whip cream and more. As a marshmallow lover, this sounds terrific to me.

The two mountain areas are Blue Mountain Ski Area and Bear Creek Mountain Resort. At Blue Mountain Ski Area, they have the highest vertical in PA and offer 33 trails that are all lit for nighttime skiing. At Bear Creek Mountain Resort, they offer 21 trails including Sasquatch Black Diamond with a 50% slope. Not an experienced skier - not to Blue Mountain Ski Area they also offer a snow tubing park and at Bear Creek they have an expanded beginners area. You can learn about each of the mountains and the current ski conditions on the Ski & Stay website.

You can join the fun at Facebook, by becoming a fan of Ski & Stay PA.

Now, you are probably wondering, why is she telling us all about this. First, I did ski in this area when I was younger and had a great time, but secondly, I was offered the chance to giveaway to one lucky reader a one night accommodation at one of the two Headquarter Hotels. It is the room only and does not include the package. The one night stay needs to be taken this ski season. In addition, you will get a Ski & Stay Knit Ski Cap, a Ski & Stay Vest and can get a discount on booking a vacation.
