In a break from the time-honored tradition of charging customers for every little perk, Waterville Valley is actually giving away normally expensive extras. With the purchase of a midweek ticket, skiers get free advanced-level clinics; free use of snow toys (bikes, scoots, foxes, and blades); free health club access; free cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, with rentals; and more. Purchased separately, the value of these free extras would be more than double the $41 daily midweek ticket price. Nice deal, indeed. Let's hope it becomes a trend.
