Reverse skiing up a mountain is only possible during full moons on the summer equinox, which is why Rube Goldberg invented ski lifts. Take advantage of modern technology with today’s Groupon to Mansfield Ski Club in Mansfield. Choose between two options:
- For $58, you get two adult lift tickets, ages 13 and older (up to a $116 value including HST).
- For $23, you get one child lift ticket (up to a $46 value including HST).
Groupon holders also get 50 per cent off ski rental.
Since the 1960s, Mansfield Ski Club has tamed, combed, and snowed over the wild Mulmur Hills, carving pristine trails for downhill denizens of every skill level. Snow-skeptical tenderfoots and the ski-lift leery can comfortably test the crystallized waters on three beginner hills, remaining firmly grounded on the tow rope or the Magic Carpet lift, which whisks passengers hilltop-ward on a conveyor belt pieced together from semiretired flying carpet swatches. Intrepid daredevils can make good on their braggadocio, defying the prince of darkness on his own terrain, the Devil’s Staircase, a racing course and one of six black-diamond runs. Practice ollies, nosegrabs, or the crown jewel in any snowboarder’s repertoire, the double face plant, on the rails and jumps of Mansfield’s two freestyle terrains. This Groupon entitles holders to half off ski rental ($35 for adults and $29 for children) or snowboard rental ($40 for adults and $34 for children) for a full day; click here for half-day and blade rentals.
Though not included with this Groupon, skiers and snowboarders can mend fences between rounds of battle slalom in the chalet’s full restaurant. Mansfield Ski Club is open every Wednesday through Sunday in February, but open dates in March are restricted to the 4, 5, 6, 11–20, 26, and 27.
