Why not make the trip to ski country in style? That’s right, take a limo to the slopes. Ski Time Tours (800-775-6570) offers a new service that takes groups of skiers from the metro-New York area for a surprisingly reasonable fee. Consider: Killington weekend packages start at $700 per person for two nights of lodging and include lift tickets, demos or rentals, and a limo driver at your beck and call. Limousines get quite exotic, with choices ranging from a six-passenger Lincoln Continental to a 14-passenger Mercedes 500 to a 20-passenger Ford Excursion. Other destinations include Mount Snow, Stowe, Jay Peak, Bolton Valley, Whiteface, and Gore. Owner Tom Crown suggests conducting a “business meeting” on the way up and back. Of course, managing business discussions surrounded by a stocked bar, TV/VCR, and stereo might prove a tad difficult.
