Plow down powdery peaks with a boost from today’s elevating Groupon. For $45, you’ll get a one-day lift ticket to Keystone Resort, recognized as a top resort by readers of SKI magazine.

Keystone offers 3,148 skiable and snowboard-able acres, with 135 trails and 20 lifts on three different peaks (including the largest mountain in Summit County). The resort’s state-of-the-art, eight-passenger gondola will take you to the top in high style.

Well-groomed terrain is abundant for skiers at all levels of expertise. Skiing novices can start with scenic Dercum, an 11,640-foot mountain with meandering scenic runs. Graduate to the bumpy North Peak, an 11,660 foot mountain for intermediates. An adventurous, 11,980-foot skyscraping slope, The Outback, is perfect for experts and thrill-seekers.

Skiing and snowboarding are notoriously expensive sports. This Groupon allows you to frugally cruise the slopes with pockets full of gold bullion. Consequentially, you won’t feel bad treating yourself to a revitalizing treatment at the resort’s 10,000 square-foot spa or a fueling feast at one of its award-winning dining venues.

The Expenses of Skiing

Today's Groupon brings an expensive sport within your fiscal reach. Here's a breakdown of the costs usually associated with skiing:

Skiing Lessons, $23,000: Most ski instructors are merely moonlighting supermodels or television actors who demand to be paid their usual hourly rate.

Skis, $14,000 Each: Individual skis are handmade by artisans who carve each ski out of a single redwood tree then adorn them with aerodynamic money origami.

Winter Clothes, $29,000 and up: Ski-grade clothing has to be heated by thermo-conducive diamond wiring and the blessings of Nepalese holy men.

Personal Mountain, $2,000,000: Gotta get your own mountain.

Confidence, $100,000: Yes, money can buy it.
