Share on: Share on Google+

Ski runThese days, ski resorts don’t shut down once the snow melts.

In fact, some top-notch ski resorts are offering an increasing number of activities and discounted hotel rates for summer and fall travelers.

At Snowbird Resort in Utah, hotels have rates as low as $79 per person per night, which includes lift tickets.

Compare that to its winter rates, which can cost you up to $800 a night—that is, if you can get a room.

Snowbird’s summer activities include a zipline, an outdoor slide, and even a mechanical bull!

At Squaw Valley in Tahoe, you can ride a cable car, hit the spa, or go ice-skating.

And, on the East Coast, Killington, Vermont has a weekly concert series through early August, plus activities such as an alpine slide and gondola rides.

Summer rates start at just about $50 a night.

And, don’t forget: With mountain resorts, you can usually rely on great hiking, biking and other warm-weather outdoor activities.
