Summit County Lift Tickets

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
OK, I've got my lodging at Keystone arranged --

I have heard, though, that there are local shops that sell discounted lift tickets to Summit County resorts, and that they should not be purchased at the resort ticket windows. Does anyone have any "credible and specific" information about this? Any input is appreciated...

Went to Summit County last year and purchased all our tickets at the Safeway in Frisco. The best deal we got was $50 for two days at Copper. The others (Breck, Keystone etc.) were a few bucks cheaper than buying at the mountain also. There is a large sporting goods store in Dillon (it's in the shopping center where Ruby Tuesdays is) that sells discount tickets also.

You can try the King Soopers Grocery store for discounted tickets if your driving in on hwy 70 from Denver. Take the Youngfield exit. (west end of Denver), take a left then left again. Also a good liquor store in the same shopping area if your so inclined.
has not updated the site for this year but has good information.

Rule number 1: never, ever, ever, ever buy your lift tickets from the resort ticket window without doing your homework and paying something less than the marked price.

If you can make into town you can buy tickets at about any outdoor, rental shop, or grocery store. Are the saving considerable? Usually not - $5 - $10 per day per lift ticket. I suppose that could add up after a few days if you have a group of people.

There's other options though.. hang out at the bar/restaurant/coffee shop the night before and talk to some employees. There's a good chance they can either buy them for you at a discounted rate or know another way to get them cheaper. Sometimes just having a discount card from the resort is all you need and usually their cheap. For instance Vail Resorts has the PEAKS program that's good at Keystone - check it out on the Keystone web site. You can buy lift tickets up to $12 off from the web site, or $6 at the window.

Now.. as far as ski rental goes.. if you need that I'd be careful where you go. The advantage to going to the shop at the mountain is if something breaks you can take it back there and get it replaced. It might cost a few more $$$ (actually it can be quite a lot) but it might save you some hassle.
