The government developed the most advanced ski simulator to date in the early '90s, but the project was abandoned after attempts to weaponize it proved disastrously silly. Experience the thrill of an actual ski slope with today's deal: for $149, you get a one-night stay at the Omni Mount Washington Resort plus two ski-lift tickets to nearby Bretton Woods ski area, up to a $331 total value. Your Groupon covers two people in the hotel, but you can add additional companions for $20 a head (does not include additional lift tickets).
About 2.5 hours outside of Boston, the Omni Mount Washington Hotel is a luxurious masterpiece of Spanish Renaissance architecture, dripping with Tiffany stained glass, crystal chandeliers, sentient but harmless maple syrup, and turn-of-the-century elegance. It's nestled in the majestic White Mountains of New Hampshire, providing scenes worthy of a View-Master. Each room is stocked with comfy beds and high-speed Internet—none of which will come in to play until your return from the slopes.
The two lift tickets for are for the Bretton Woods ski area, which is a snowball's throw from the front steps of the hotel. It's New Hampshire's largest ski area, with 434 acres of snowy landscape to navigate. There are 10 lifts in all, so you'll hardly have to wait to be whisked towards the sun. On your descent to the earth, carve the hills as you etch memories into your brain of the dreamy white getaway that helped you successfully avoid the IRS a few extra days.
Often a one-day getaway is all it takes for a full recuperation from everyday stress, making this a perfect way for a couple of snowbirds to escape life while simultaneously rediscovering it.

- It is a classic hotel, in a beautiful setting, with great ski conditions and excellent food. – TravelPost reviewer
- The hotel is old, but extremely well maintained, and I felt like I was in the luxury of a different era. It has gorgeous architectural features, including many Tiffany windows, a huge fireplace with a moose, and spacious porches, and the foliage was also gorgeous. – JoyceK4, TripAdvisor
- From the beginning, the front desk staff made a great first impression by being cheerful, helpful and overall pleasant to deal with. Not only was our room available for early check-in, but we were told our room had been upgraded to a corner room – both very exciting after a long day of driving! The Front desk staff did a good job of explaining how to get to our room, where things were, using the shuttle, etc. The lobby of the hotel was very comfortable and inviting. – JDFTravels, Trip Advisor
