Vermont resorts - expensive?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Was just looking at lift ticket prices for Jay Peak and Stowe and it's arounf $70-$90 for one day!

That is more expensive than most resorts in the Alps and about twice the price of most resorts in Quebec.

Why so expensive and are there ways to get it cheaper using discount cards?

Actually, we can use an Air Miles card (free signup) and get 35% of day tickets at Jay Peak...

Just show the card when you buy your ticket: https://www.airmiles.ca/arrow/RewardsProductDetailsNonRedeemable?productId=prod190019

 

Used it in February this year and it resulted in great savings.

Compared to Vail, BC and Breck in CO, Vermont is cheap!  Vail was $129 a day this past February!!

 

And don't forget snowmaking is expensive.

Agreed, but then seasons passes seem way more reasonable in CO, especially considering you get multi-mountain.

I believe AirMiles is a Canadian thing.
