Real Audio Listen with RealAudio          help Need audio help?

It's mid-April, which means just a few more weeks of skiing out West - Primo time for great deals. You don't even have to book ahead to snare last-minute airfare, hotel and rental car deals.

Rocky Mountain Vacations will fly you from DC to Denver, put you up for five nights in a two-bedroom, two-bath condo near Breckenridge, give you four days of lift tickets, and provide a Hertz car for - get this - $756 per person. Now, that's based on four people traveling, and it's about $200 less, per person, than you would have paid a month ago.

Or how about this? Go north to Canada where the American dollar is king, and you'll get five nights at the Lux Chateau Lake Louise and lift tickets and a rental car for just $955 per person. That's with airfare from DC to Calgary. It's cheaper from LA, a few dollars more from Boston or New York. You can call Rocky Mountain Vacations at 800 733 4028.

If you don't do packages, go it alone: almost everything at ski resorts is on sale. A $440-a-night room at the Lodge at Vail is $120 less a night right now. Keep in mind that most slopes shut down by the end of April, so it's T-minus two weeks, and counting.

One last winter fling at a big discount - my Deal of the Week!
