Airline and premiere winter resorts launch 'Ski the West' program that includes travel discounts and free skiing.

SEATTLE – Skiers, snowboarders, and those looking for a winter getaway can rejoice. Alaska Airlines is partnering with select top resorts in the Western United States and Canada to offer great deals on airfare, lift tickets and equipment rentals.

With Alaska Airlines’ “Ski the West” promotion travelers can earn a roundtrip to their favorite ski destination for just the cost of the taxes. Additionally, ski enthusiasts who fly Alaska to a participating ski resort will also receive major rewards ranging from free lift tickets and free night skiing and when they fly to these destinations between Nov. 10 and Feb. 23, 2015. (The dates may vary depending on when resorts open and close.)

To participate in the “Ski the West” program, travelers first must register for Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan by Feb. 23 and fly two separate round trips to any two participating ski destinations. Alaska will send them a coupon good for a third roundtrip ticket to any of the qualifying ski destinations. Customers must pay the required taxes and fees at the time of booking.
