Family trip to Vail this weekend, first time on skis for my 4 year old and I am as excited about that as any POW day. I have done some research on-line (to include Craig's list) and can't seem to find much in the way of discount tix for Vail. I think they are the most expensive lift ticket in the country and I really do NOT want to pay full price if I can avoid it for myself and my wife. Any suggestions? Their discounted tix don't kick in until the weekend after this one..so no joy there. We may hit Copper 1 day to reduce cost some and my local friend who we are staying with is doing some digging as well. I just wanted to check here to see if there were any obvious deals out there that I have missed in my research. Any advice would be appreciated.
