If you're looking to snag a quick getaway for you or for someone else for Christmas, don't forget to check out Groupon. The site currently has a wide selection of ski-centric vacations, all of which can be taken immediately, or well into the winter. Act now, though: many of the deals and discounts have fast-approaching expiration dates for purchasing. Here's my selection of the best winter getaways on Groupon:
- Hunter Mountain Hotel & Spa - Hunter, NY: This all inclusive one-night stay includes accommodations, a free lift ticket, and a continental breakfast. You can even combine it for up to five nights.
- The Valley Inn - Waterville Valley, NH: Located near Loon Mountain, with a free shuttle to Waterville Valley Resort, this inn offers beautiful views of White Mountain National Forest, with easy access to great skiing. The two-night stay will cost you $169, and includes a bottle of wine.
- Glen Oaks Inn - Intervale, NH: If you're looking for a deal you can't pass up, this is it. This two-night stay includes trail passes and champagne, for just $219. Plus, its close to six local mountains, including Wildcat, as well as cross country skiing, too.
- SkiRun Vacation Rentals - Copper Mountain, CO: Score a condo at one of Colorado's largest ski resort, for just $139 for one night. You have the option to extend your stay, too, up to two nights for $269.
- Mount Airy Casino Resort - The Poconos: This one- ($109) or two-night stay ($369) is at a luxury casino resort in the Poconos, which is short drive from Camelback Ski Resort. It includes a resort credit, too, to use towards dining, room service or spa treatments.
- The Dorset Inn - Dorset, VT: With Bromley, Okemo and Stratton all within 30 minutes or less from this classic Vermont inn, this $210-for-two nights deal is definitely a steal, offering quaint New England charm complemented by great skiing.
- Lakeside Inn and Casino - Lake Tahoe: How can you pass up a one-night stay for $48, including a free ski or snowboard rental and a pitcher of beer, in beautiful Lake Tahoe? With that bargain, you might even have some money to spare at the casinos.
