With a bold move into a lodging segment that has traditionally belonged to the managed rental, condo and timeshare market, Airbnb is offering a $100 discount to winter sports enthusiasts who book their stay in an Airbnb accommodation with a new ski promotion.
What’s the Big Deal?
First time Airbnb users must book a stay with a minimum value of $500 (excluding taxes and fees) to be eligible for the $100 discount coupon, and this promotion is valid only if booked between September 29, 2016 and October 29,2016 for travel between December 1,2016 and April 1, 2017.The company is claiming to have more than 14,000 listings with fireplaces — and nearly 11,000 with hot tubs — in the most popular ski towns in the USA and Canada, so you have plenty to choose from.
Bookings must be within one of these top regions they cover for winter mountain sports, listed alphabetically.
- Aspen and Vail
- Catskills and Hudson Valley
- Jackson Hole
- Mammoth Lakes
- Park City
- Sun Valley
