ASPEN - Aug. 12, 2009 - It's summer and while thoughts of skiing or snowball fights may be a faint memory, early winter vacation planning can bring pocketbook relief that is good anytime of the year. The Gant is offering its ‘Summer Snow Saver' package that gives snow enthusiasts a tiered discount for each night booked Nov. 26, 2009 - Apr. 11, 2010. The longer the stay, the more money saved. Guests can earn a 15 percent discount for an overnight stay and up to 30 percent off four or more nights. For example, a four night stay in a two bedroom condominium early in the season starts at $225 per night. By booking early, guests can save up to $67.50 per night, reducing the nightly rate to $157.50, excluding fees and taxes. During high season, the same unit starts at $525 per night, but with the Summer Snow Saver package, guests can save up to $157.50 per night, reducing the nightly rate to $367.50. Reservations must be booked by Nov. 15.
