Like grizzly-bear chauffeurs or a WiFi-enabled beard, mountain resorts combine rugged charm with modern amenities. Get back to nature from a safe distance with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a full-day lift ticket at Hickory Ski Center in Warrensburg.
At Hickory Ski Center, 18 trails stretch across more than 5 miles of snow-covered scenery. Full-day lift tickets grant skiers and snowboarders access to all four lifts, including one tow rope, which whisk riders to all of the mountain's runs. The trail map splits difficulty levels into nearly equal helpings of green (easier), blue (more difficult), and single and double black-diamond (most difficult) runs. Easier runs, such as Cotton Tail, allow for smooth and carefree carves atop groomed slopes, and the black-diamond runs challenge more advanced skiers with bumps, trees, and sudden cessations of gravity. Trick-minded athletes can pay a visit to the terrain park, where man-made alpine additions present snow surfers with a forum for practicing sky-skimming stunt work.
