We assume that being a fan isn't necessarily required, but Killington is offering a pair of great deals on its website touted as "Dave Matthews Band Fan Offers," good for 2-for-1 skiing at Killington, and a free day at nearby Pico.
All you have to do is sign up for each area's newsletter, and you'll instantly be e-mailed a voucher. The 2-for-1 deal at Killington is good any day through Dec. 24 and all of January, excluding Jan. 16 and 23. The free midweek (Monday, Thursday and Friday) lift ticket to Pico is valid all season, except for holiday periods. See site for details.
Hat tip to the folks over at the NELSAP discussion boards.
With Sunday River closing up operations during the week, Killington is just one of two ski areas currently open in New England. The other, of course, is Connecticut's Woodbury Ski Area.
