Love to ski, but lament the long drive home when your thighs just say done? Day trips to the mountains are fun, but there is the looming commute that is a bit of a buzz kill. That's why I love the Zoom Room - sounds cool right?! Sugarloaf is selling Zoom Rooms card for $99 - that entitle you to last minute lodging for a night in a hotel room or studio condo, anytime, midweek, weekend or holiday. Here's the catch, you can only reserve 48 hours in advance, space available.
So you call within two days of your Sugarloaf ski day, or just check with the front desk at the Loaf for your last minute lodging. Then unwind at The Widowmaker or The Bag for après ski, what some say is the best part of the ski day, knowing your bed is just steps away. Zoom Room cards make great gifts too, since they are fully transferable. Buy your Zoom Room cards now, limited to 1000, purchase by December 24, 2012 or sell out- whichever comes first. See you on the slopes, and at après ski. Photos by Greg Burke
