A new travel site called SnowSearch launched this month, and with it, users can peruse hundreds of ski trip deals available across the country. The browsing and booking platform aggregates the best rates from partner sites like HomeAway, VRBO, and SkiButlers to offer users the lowest prices on hotels, vacation rentals, lift tickets, gear rentals, and gear shipping.

With a decent snowfall conveniently setting the scene for this weekend, it’s the perfect time to throw your skis in the car and head north.

“There are a ton of options at the low-end of the price range given that it’s still early season,” says SnowSearch cofounder and CEO Bryan Dunn. “In Killington alone we have nearly 300 hotel and vacation rentals available for that weekend, many within the $100 range.”

Here, find standout deals in three New England ski destinations. They’re all based on double occupancy, exclude taxes and fees, and are subject to availability.

Loon, NH
2 hours and 15 minutes from Boston

For a quick family trip, consider zipping up to Loon Mountain, where there are hotel rooms from $78 per night and vacation rentals from $110 per night. Plus, two-day lift tickets for adult start at $128.

Don’t miss: Loon is hosting a Rail Jam as part of USASA’s New Hampshire Series on Saturday. Participation is open to all ages and levels.

Killington, Vt.
2 hours and 55 minutes from Boston

Go to Killington this weekend to ski, then stay overnight to party. Hotel rooms start at $80 per night and vacation rentals begin at $135 per night. Two-day lift tickets, meanwhile, fetch $154.

Sugarloaf, Maine

It’s worth the road trip to Sugarloaf Mountain, where wide-open snowy expanses await. Vacation homes here start at $150 per night, but two-day lift tickets are only $119.
