Jay Peak, Vermont, already closed for the season. Then a massive late-season winter storm rolled in—dropping 19 to 24 inches on the ski area. Naturally, they decided to re-open for one more weekend. The ski area is open Thursday through Sunday with more than 18 trails accessed by the Jet Triple and Metro Quad. Lift tickets are $39 ($29 for juniors) and—get this—they're throwing in a free lunch in the Tower Bar with a purchase of a lift ticket.

Whistler's Peak to Peak Gondola

Whislter's Peak to Peak Gondola opened in December 2008. The largest construction project of its kind in North America, the gondola connects Whistler to Blackcomb so that if you want to take turns in Symphony Bowl and Seventh Heaven in the same hour, you can. The gondola spans 2.7 miles in 11 minutes—three times longer than the Golden Gate Bridge.
