cheap tix - YES
If you join a ski club you can get cheap adult tix for Kmart, such as an EICSL-affiliated clubs http://www.eicsl.org
I've been doing this for 25 years and save gobs of cash. They usually have a varying assortment of tix (each club will have its own deals over and above what EICSL offers - my club offered limited Kmart tix for $38-sold out with quantity restrictions). You usually have to get them in the early fall. Tix available right now are slim pickins, but Kmart tickets are still available from EICSL at $49. Often these tickets come with blackout dates [Vermont tickets have various restricted use dates – usually at Christmas/New Year’s, Martin Luther King weekend and the February school vacation week] You have to join a club first. So time is working against you this late in the season. Most people running these clubs may be busy skiin' too!
I have saved hundreds of dollars, no, probably thousands buying for a family of five. The only real catch is that you have to buy the most popular ones in the fall. This time of year, anything the clubs have left go for serious bargain basement prices. Good Luck!
