UTIX sold a card that could be redeemed as a 1-day lift ticket with no restrictions/blackouts at a lot of different ski areas, including a lot of the higher-end places. They had Level 1 and Level 2 cards based on the area. I think it was $70 or so for a Level 1, and another $15 for a Level 2. You could upgrade a Level 1 to a Level 2 online.
It was nice as a gift because it let the recipient choose where/when to ski. I was planning to use the ones I had for my group of 4 to ski Beaver Creek next Monday (on the holiday, when the Vail Resorts coupon I have from Amex is blacked out).
I used one previously at Stowe last December. Nice setup, but I guess it wasn't very profitable...
EDIT: I forgot... They did golf, too, but I think it had more levels. It would cover greens fees for 18 holes at a lot of different courses.
