Waterville Valley Resort in New Hampshire unveiled nine Stay and Ski packages for the upcoming ski season.
A Snow-vember/December Kick-off deal, for example, includes two nights' accommodations and two all-day lift tickets from $77 per person per night, double. The special is valid from Nov. 1 to Dec. 20.
The resort also has initiated a late checkout time of 3 p.m., good on all nonholiday packages for the 2009-10 season.
"This latest perk allows guests to take the shuttle to the mountain and enjoy Sunday-morning prime time on the ski slopes," said Jim Wefers, president of the Waterville Valley Resort Association.
