Hey friends. Happy Friday! I’m not sure how many of you are skiers. I, as you know, am definitely not. But for those of you out there, here’s a deal for you.

Bear Creek Mountain Resort and Blue Mountain Ski Area are ramping up their snowmaking efforts to counter the recent dry spell, and as a further incentive the two Lehigh Valley, PA-area ski resorts are offering Stay and Ski packages that combine vouchers for skiing, boarding or tubing with lodging at one of 13 participating area hotels. These packages are valid through March 31.

Rates at Bear Creek start at $95 per person at the resort’s slopeside hotel, which features indoor and outdoor pools and hot tubs. Call 1-866-754-2822 or visit www.discoverlehighvalley.com/stay/hotels-motels/bear-creek-mountain-resort-2

Blue Mountain Ski Area boasts the highest vertical in Pennsylvania (1,082 ft), and the region’s only Natural Luge Run open to the public. This season it has added two new trails: Razorback for experienced skiers and Little Gap for beginners. Visit www.discoverlehighvalley.com/play/attractions/blue-mountain-ski-area
