Discounts Versus Value in a Ski Vacation

Chasing Junior Down the Hill...Priceless!

We strive at American Mountain Holidays to get you the best value for your ski vacation. While we don’t advertise ourselves as “discount ski packages”, we have access to the same early bird pricing, free night offers and percentage off incentives that are offered to the other ski tour operators.

What we do want to bring to you is value: A great product at a competitive price. The saying “you get what you pay for” rings true in the mountain travel industry. Getting you to the best value for your experience is where the rubber meets the road for us. Discussing the components that are of value to you is where we start. Destination, location of lodging, standard of accommodation, amenities of the hotel or condominium and value added items like free breakfast, free wireless internet or free parking are all considerations in delivering value to you.

 Other customers we work with have different value criteria. They want a special experience. They want a destination that is only just being discovered. They want to come back from their trip with memories that they had a unique experience. Our skiing excursions and experiences away from the ski resort or combined with a ski town is what we specialize in. Some examples are:

 Snowcat skiing in Crested Butte, Heli-skiing in Telluride, Lift serviced backcountry skiing with our guide service in Aspen, hut skiing trips from Breckenridge, alpine touring to a remote lodge in Lake Louise and sidecountry skiing in Jackson Hole.

Chasing the Helicopter...Thrilling!

 Many of our destinations offer these special experiences that are the “value” our customers are seeking. Our other clients have in mind that cozy condominium, next to the slopes that the kids can ski right out of with a free night thrown in. Still others are looking for a romantic grand hotel in a vibrant destination with great restaurants and a special day out heli skiing. Whatever your idea of a good value is we are here to help you find it.

 We have a saying here at AMH when we see the auction travel website ads touting 4 star hotels at a 2 star price, “know where you’re going.” This is a basic premise in life and one we live by at AMH. Visit our website and give us a call, you’ll find that you will end up with the best value.

 Here’s today’s value we found for a client in Los Angeles recently:

Park City, Utah area:

 4 nights Crestview Condominiums, ranked #1 in lodging in Park City by Trip Advisor. 40% off a 4 night stay for the time period of January 30, 2012 to February 16, 2012.

Deluxe 1 bedroom condominium would be $167.40 per night, before taxes. Free area shuttle service, free heated parking; heated outdoor pool and hot tubs in newer complex make this a great value in a great destination.

Throw in days of skiing at Deer Valley, Park City and The Canyons with one day of snowcat skiing with our local service, great restaurants and historic ambiance of Main Street in Park City and you have a great ski trip with that special experience of skiing or riding Utah powder all day!

  1. George,

    Hopefully you guys are selling packages to Wolf Creek. They are already open for business and skiing season has started.

    • Greetings Matt and thanks for checking in on our posts. You are right, Wolf Creek opened with a bang! They are usually the ski area that consistently has the most base in Colorado. We have spent many days making tracks on Alberta Peak. Unfortunately we haven’t seen a lot of requests for Wolf Creek packages, you are the first, but we are listening! We do offer Silverton Mountain as an alternative. Their one lift, no grooming, backcountry experience is unique. While not the snow pocket that Wolf Creek is, they have plenty of vertical with long steep angles. If you decide to head that way let us know, we have a variety of hotels and can put you on to some good information to make your trip a great one!
