Free Skiing at Eagle Ridge Resort, Utah

We find it interesting the different ways free skiing is often used to invite skiers and riders to try new resorts. One of the latest and intriguing stories with free skiing is Eagle Ridge in Utah.

Eagle Point resort is so intent on expanding its market that it’s offering free, unlimited skiing to California residents next winter. And for everyone else,skiing and riding are free on Thursdays in January. Looks like a great excuse to plan a road trip and check out something new. 

To receive free lift privileges, visitors must simply provide a name and email address (and Californians must add proof of address).

Why free? "We have a truly exceptional mountain that people love to visit,” said Shane Gadbaw, CEO and co-owner of the resort. "Our last remaining challenge is to massively increase awareness in the core markets of Las Vegas, southern California and Utah." The resort is about 200 miles from both Las Vegas and Salt Lake City.

Eagle Point,formerly known as Elk Meadows, had been closed for eight years at the beginning of the century. A New York-based hedge fund assumed control in 2010 after the failed Mt. Holly episode and has upgraded the facilities.

The area is scheduled to open for the 2012-13 season on Dec. 21.The current plan is to operate Thursdays through Sundays and weekly during holiday periods. The resort is also trying to rent out the area to private groups Mondays through Wednesdays. The close proximity to Las Vegas is one of the target markets.

Ski Free at Red Mountain in Canada for US Residents

Red Mountain Resort, in Rossland British Columbia, is offering free lift tickets to all U.S. residents for 30 days, through Feb. 5.

While snow is spotty at best further south in the US, Red is white, having piled up two more feet of snow in late December when many U.S. winter resorts were showing rocks. Red's twin mountains are fully open with natural snow, according to the resort.

Red Mountain is just outside Rossland, high above the Columbia River. The resort is a few miles into Canada and 125 miles from its gateway, Spokane International Airport. It is one of our editors favorite getaways for skiing and riding. The atmosphere is old school yet incredible terrain for advanced and expert skiers.

This promotion is the first time a ski resort is running an offering of this magnitude.
“Despite the catastrophic snowfall conditions throughout the resort regions of the California Sierras, Lake Tahoe, Utah, Colorado, and other East Coast resorts, Red Mountain is continuing to deliver the goods—snow,” says an enthusiastic Howard Katkov, president and CEO of Red Mountain Resort.

With snow in full force at Red (1,685 acres/88 runs/2,919 vertical drop), every chair is running at the resort. Additionally, all of Granite and Red mountains’ runs are fully open with 100-percent natural snow. Furthermore, Red’s legendary "side-country" (2,500 acres) is open for the taking. Interested visitors are encouraged to look at flights going into Spokane International Airport in Washington (GEG) or Castlegar Airport (YCG) in British Columbia. For more details on Red Mountain, how to get here and where to lodge, visit

And, yes, there is a catch for claiming the free lift tickets.

Free Lift Pass Promotion Fine Print:
(1.) One free day of skiing per night of accommodations booked through Red Mountain Resort Lodging. Participant must call Red Mountain Resort Lodging at 877-969-7669 to access promotion and use code “Redsgotsnow” for free tickets. (2.) Number of lift passes per accommodation based on reported guest room occupancy, i.e. if room sleeps 2, then two tickets are available per day, no rain checks, refunds or future usage past length of stay. (3.) Customers must list all names of lodgers and length of stay to get free passes at time of booking. Customers must list all names of any guest staying in the condo at time of booking. (4.) Lift tickets are non-transferable. (5.) Must be resident of USA or resident alien residing in USA legally and must bring valid passport and ID. (6.) Promotion Period is from Jan 6, 2012 until Feb 5, 2012, lift tickets are only valid during the promotion period and after that regular lift ticket rates apply. (7.) Red Resort is not responsible for assisting with entrance into Canada. All US visitors must have a current valid US passport. (8.) Only Valid for new bookings made after Januray 5, 2012. (9.) Offer based on availability. (10.) Cannot be bundled with any other offers. (11.) Look both ways before crossing the street and be careful in bathtubs, as they are slippery.

You need to book lodging at, with the booking code "RedsGotSnow," or by phone at 877-969-7669, to receive free passes for the days you stay at the resort. But you've got to sleep somewhere, right?
