Does anyone know where I can get cheap tickets to Heavenly. $408 for 4 days on their website, now thats freaking outrageous. Cant believe these clowns are charging the same price as JH.

Gear mentioned in this thread:
It's a Vail resort... they guarantee their online advance purchase prices, so it's unlikely you'll be able to find anything cheaper. They don't offer coupons or use discount sites like Liftopia. From the website :
Perhaps an employee with a pass might have some buddy passes, or someone may have gotten some cheaper buddy or "ski with a friend" passes with their season pass. Other than that, you're probably out of luck...
Personally, I like the policy, as I know I'm not missing out on some secret knowledge someone else knows. And I can "vote with my wallet" based on the available price.
Other than that you troll craigslist for someone who has bought ticket vouchers already and can't use them for whatever reason (often lake tahoe 6packs), and go through the hassle of trying to meet up, haggling over price snd hoping the tickets are legit

If you don't like their website price, try walking up and buying a ticket - it could be $30 more. But if you put $49 down in April, that $408 is not much less than I paid in Sept. for a season pass that includes Heavenly, Kirkwood and Northstar, My pass only has 4 more black out dates and includes 5 free days at Vail resorts in CO and UT.
Do you really have or want to be at Heavenly all 4 days? If there is a windy storm, they may close or only run one chair in NV and you will still be paying over $100 for that. Kirkwood is a little less expensive and 35 miles away. Diamond Peak is 25 miles away and $35 non-holiday with any season pass. There are also some discounts available on tickets for Homewood (26 miles from Casinos, assuming Emerald Bay is open) and Sierra at Tahoe (even closer). See http://www.slidingonthecheap.com/deals/ although website is not as good as it used to be.

As mentioned above, one of the options would be buying a Lake Tahoe Six Pack and then either sell or trade North Shore days.
You can buy 2 Six-packs for $808, you get 4 days at Heavenly and sell other 8 days for $70 ($560 - still a better discount that anywhere else) and your 4 days at Heavenly cost you $248 or $62/day.
I know somebody that might be interested in Squaw/Alpine passes. PM me if you decide to go this route.
One and only deal out there right now/today (it might not be there mañana) is SkiLakeTahoeSix-Pack.
I remember not that far ago six-pack was $289 ... before MTN bought Heavenly, Northstar and Kirkwood.
Once they (Heavenly) charged me $11 for a beer - love fest was over.

I need 1 heavenly ticket. Willing to swap Squaw/alpine ticket for it.... PM me please
Also note that REI and as far as I know, other shops, do not have Heavenly or other CA Vail resort tickets. (But by looking at their website, I found I can get a 2-pack for a good price for Revelstoke if I order in advance or have guy I'll be skiing with pick it up in WA.)
In another thread, you talk about driving to Squaw from SLT during late Jan trip. So you'll have a car and could try some of my other less expensive ideas. If I was at Heavenly the same day as you, I could get you a Buddy ticket for $82, but I won't be sharing the 6 I get from renewing my pass early with strangers until much later in the season as I may need them for my family or friends.
The pricing model ski areas use these days certainly discourages people who ski only 2 or 3 days a year, but with our Tahoe Local passes we end up paying about $23 / day to ski several Vail resorts. Best bet is to plan ahead, get yourself a pass and plan a trip to both Tahoe and Colorado next year. For non-Vail resorts the Mountain Collective is another great choice. We have both.
It's definitely getting harder and harder to find discount tickets because everyone is going to the season pass model, but there are still plenty of great ski areas with dirt cheap tickets like Brundage and Bogus Basin in Idaho to name a couple. We paid less than $50 per day per person over Christmas week at both of those places. Lots of choices out there for skiers on a budget.
