Hit the hills with today's deal from Squaw Valley, where $20 covers one hour of snow tubing for two people ages 3 and up (a $40 value). If your family prefers to explore the slopes in the upright position, spend $37 (regularly $74) for two kids' lift tickets (ages 5 to 12), $70 (regularly $140) for two young-adult lift tickets (ages 13 to 22), or $41 (regularly $82) for two adult aerial tram rides and one hour of ice skating -- or take your alpine know-how to new heights with two full-day adult group ski lessons for $139 (regularly $278). This hot spot for chilly fun in Lake Tahoe is one of the largest ski areas in the country, with six peaks across more than 4,000 acres; or you can opt to redeem your lift tickets and group lessons at Alpine Meadows. No matter which tubular option you choose, you'll be having a winter ball without throwing your savings down the tube. Want more? Check out Squaw Valley on Facebook.
