Official Discount Lift Tickets Thread, starting 2015-16

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

If you are looking to get the most powder for your dollar, look no further than Loveland’s Unrestricted 4-Pak and get 4 lift tickets for just $139 – that’s just $34.75/day! Loveland 4-Paks are unique because these are actual lift tickets that can be used by anyone on any day of the 2015/16 season. Use the tickets yourself on 4 different days or share with friends and family all on the same day. They are your tickets and it’s your call. No restrictions and no blackouts. Lift lines and hassles not included.

Nice thread resurrection. That is an amazing deal! What liftlines or hassles? BTW any deals for Breck? I may be stopping by there with a buddy at the end of Feb for a single day. Any supermarkets or stores have discounted tickets? Ive heard the walk-up prices are pretty steep.

Hey there . . . do you mind if I create a new thread from the new posts?  The info from 2004-05 is not likely to be of much use to anyone in 2015-16.

Don't expect too many folks around EpicSki to be interested, but Snowshoe in WV has a pretty unusual deal on sale for another day or so.  They are selling a $99 Early Season Pass for 72 hours, Oct. 21-23, which will be good from Opening Day until Dec. 25.  Someone who buys one and decides they will definitely ski Snowshoe later on the in season will be able apply the $99 to a regular season pass. Snowshoe has posted Nov. 25 as the target for Opening Day.

If you don't need a 4-pack at Loveland but want a cheaper day -- ask any season pass holder to swipe you in for a buddy pass. Should knock $15 off window rates. Pass holders get 1 buddy pass (plus 2 for kids) every day so nobody hoards them, and most of us are happy to help. 

 

Wondering how you can spot a passholder? Look for duct tape on their gear...they probably have a pass.

Canyon Sports in Utah has their 15/16 discount prices up:

There isn't any surge pricing for the Holiday week in Utah, is there (dec 25 - Jan 1st)? I thought everything was always the same price all year at the actual resort.

I bought a vermont travel card - $45 gets you some pretty substantial discounts.

I also bought a ride & ski card -- I don't think it is quite as useful, but it came up 1/2 price on my Groupon (sorry, that is long gone).  More 2 for 1's than straight discounts, which isn't great for me but might work for some people.

If you go to SLC Utah, most of the ski shops sell discount lift tickets.

For example,

http://www.thelifthouse.com/discount-lift-tickets/

or

http://powderhouseskishop.com/skiing/discount-lift-tickets

and others as well.

Rather use liftopia allows more flexibility and you don't need to print out the ticket just bring along a valid id and your smartphone

Not sure I understand what you mean about Liftopia having more flexibility.  Unless you pay extra, a Liftopia purchase is only good on a specific date.  The biggest discounts do sell out sometimes so need to make a commitment at least a few days before.  When buying a discounted lift ticket at one of the SLC shops, can wait until the day before or even first thing in the morning of a ski day to decide where to go.  Sometimes a particular shop is out of inventory but then can go down the street.  At least that's what happened when we wanted Snowbasin tickets and the Lifthouse didn't have any left.  They were happy to give us directions to a shop 2 min away who still had some.  Plus my friends who needed a ticket for Snowbird the next day could buy it at the same time.

 

Of course, we are old school . . . no smartphone to buy online any where, any time. ;)

I agree with this. While the Liftopia discounts can be substantial, the beauty of SLC is the options. If it's dumping I'm probably gonna go to a different resort than I would if it wasn't. Two or three days after a dump, I'm gonna go somewhere different than I did after those powder days previously to avoid crowds/continue to find stashes. So, for me, as others mentioned, I'll hit the local ski shops for a $10-$15 discount over Liftopia locked in.

^^^ I agree - with Utah skiing, there are tons of shops with discounted tickets, including in the Ogden Valley for both Snowbasin and PowMow.  Is it the same for Colorado?  I am going to be needing some Keystone tickets and probably Vail and/or Breck also.  Is liftopia the best bet?

post #16 of 16
In my limited experience discounted tickets are a lot harder to come by in Colorado. REI and supermarkets have some cheaper tickets sometimes, but they seem to always be sold out. Not convenient and abundant like in SLC.
