But hold onto your boarding pass! That becomes your lift ticket with this week's hot deal from the airline. It is offering free lift tickets to passengers heading to Idaho or Oregon resorts this winter (now through Jan 31, with some blackout dates). Here are the details:
Mount Bachelor, Oregon: Book an early flight, because this freebie is only good on the day of arrival. But if you can get to the slopes quickly, you could get in a lot of free shussing. All you'll need to do is present that day's boarding pass for your lift ticket.
Schweitzer Mountain Resort: No need to rush in from the airport on this one. But you will have to stay at the right hotel (either the Selkirk Lodge or the White Pine Lodge) to redeem your freebie. Along with one day's lift ticket, the offer includes daily breakfast and a quick ski clinic. Not bad!
