On a friend's recomendation, we've booked independently to visit Loon over New Year 08/09 and shall be staying at The Village of Loon Mountain. When we booked there was 2 Dollars to the Pound but now there's only 1.55 it's looking a whole lot more expensive but that's life I suppose.
That aside, I've just been looking at the official loon mtn rates for ski lessons/ hire and passes and it works out at $760 a day for 2 adults, 2 teenagers and 1 child. Whilst we may not ski every day out of the 7 whole days that we are there, the overall cost looks frightening as there doesn't appear to be any package deals. We are all pretty much novices and I guess we won't need lessons everyday either but I just can't see a way of doing it less expensively. Perhaps we should rent the ski equipment in Boston or en route but that's not going to make much difference? Any advice would be gratly appreciated.
Also, does anyone have any tips for where to go for a nice family night out on New Years eve?
