If you are thinking of going skiing this winter, why not do it for a lot less money.

Discover NY Ski Day is a day that is set aside this year for us to hit our favorite ski slopes for a lot less money than usual.

This year's Discover NY Ski Day is on Thursday, Jan.18, so maybe plan to take the day off from work and do some skiing.

According to ISkiNY, you can purchase vouchers ranging in price from $12 to $24. The vouchers are good for a lift ticket to participating ski mountains and if you want to take some friends along for the day, you can buy up to 8 vouchers at one time.

I know that a lot of people have never skied or snowboarded before, so this is the perfect opportunity to finally get out on the mountains as they are also offering learn to ski or snowboard vouchers that start at $25.

Here are some of the ski resorts close to us that are taking part in this year's Discover NY Ski Day:

Belleayre Mountain
Catamount
Hunter
Thunder Ridge
Windham Mountain

If you can't make it out on Jan. 18, you can buy lift tickets in advance and save some money. They call them Anytime Lift Tickets, which range in price from $24.00-$62.00 and can be used any date that you choose.
