I just got an email from Tours de Sport with this promotion for Mt. Snow:
"Winter is whiter and brighter at Mount Snow this year. Come see what 251 fan guns (the most in New England) can do. There’s so much going on at Mount Snow this winter that the staff there tells us that one visit per season just isn’t enough. So with that in mind they want to pick up the tab for your return visit. Really! It’s on them!
Just reserve and deposit any Mount Snow lodging and lift ticket package with Tours de Sport between now and December 15th (day of drawing), and be entered to win a 2 night stay in a one bedroom Seasons Condo at Mount Snow in March. Package includes up to 4 lift tickets, and can be reserved for any 2 nights in March 2009, based on availability. Yes, there’s some other fine print, so ask your sales rep for more details."
So, they write, "Really! It's on them!" when in fact it's not REALLY on them at all, you just get a lousy entry into a contest to win a free weekend in March. That is totally lame. You'd think given the complete lack of snow they'd be motivated to offer a REAL promotion.
Rant over. I feel better now.
