Snow has two positive uses: it can be used to build snow-jurors when neighbours don't show up to serve in a non-binding apartment court, and you can ski on it. Utilize the pillowy stuff in one way or another with today's Groupon at Ski Ben Eoin on Cape Breton Island. Choose between the following winter wonderland options:
- For $24, you get a one-day lift pass and ski or board equipment rental (a $48 value).
- For $20, you get a Discover Skiing and Snowboarding lesson (a $40 value).
From bunny-friendly trails to black diamond slopes, Ben Eoin hosts a range of snow sport escapades for novice boarders and practiced skiers alike. The lift pass grants access to 11 trails organized by skill level, a freestyle terrain park, and a half-pipe. Go straight to the lift, or get schooled in the basics of riding safely and maintaining control with the Discover lesson, a fundamentals course geared toward newbies and out-of-practice snow treaders in need of a refresher. This 90-minute course is held on weekends and includes a lift ticket for the day and rental equipment to test out newfound or recovered skills as you race to escape the lonely, slope-dwelling yeti who desperately wants you to read his novel.
