Cheap ski vacation packages...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey all- I'm a poor college student looking for a deal. Anyone have any suggestions as to where I might find some cheap(er) packages (ie: lodging and lift...maybe air as well). We'll probably do the same thing we always do and that's drive, stay in some reasonable hotel and pay for lift tickets. But I thought I'd check with epic and see what suggestions you might have. Usually we drive Utah or Colorado, but B.C. is certainly sounding oh sooo good.

I'm also a poor college student and a bunch of my friends are going to breck through lifestylez (www.lifestylez.com). We went with them last year to Crested Butte and was pretty good. The condos were nice but they packed a lot of people into each one. The trip includes lift tickets but you have to find your own transportation. The only thing that I really didn't like was the fact that they were really unorganized when we first checked in.

You didn't mention when you were going to be skiing, and that can make a BIG difference!

The least expensive trip you can take in the country is probably on the 'Ski New Mexico' pass. The pass costs $225 and is good for two days of skiing at each of the participating New Mexico resorts. Those include; Ski Apache, Sandia Peak, Santa Fe, Pajarito, Taos, Angel Fire, Red River, and Sipapu. ...So for $112.50 per person, you get a day at your choice of these ski areas. There is a lot of good skiing in New Mexico, with Taos and Pajarito really showing their stuff when the snow is good. If you look into the hostel option, you should be able to put together a pretty cheap trip. The snowmansion in Arroyo Seco usually has quite a few college age people floating through during ski season. --You need to go early! It isn't unusual for a mid-March warm-up to effect ski conditions.

The cheapest skiing site on the continent has to be Revelstoke, British Columbia. An overnight bunk and a lift ticket costs $24.50Cdn. $17.50US for a place to sleep and skiing on 1000 ft. of vertical is really hard to beat. The ski area isn't big, but it is cheap! ...It won't last long, they are in the planning stages of a huge expansion.

There are some other good deals around, but you will have to give some specifics if you want responses.

Hey guys!
Get on the internet and find a ski club in your area. They can have some very good deals. How about flying to Taos, 3 nights hotel, 3 days skiing, lift pass and air fare for $349. Durango on a video bus 3 nights hotel, 3 days lift pass for $295. Telluride, 3 nights ski in/ski out condo, 3 day lift pass, video bus $325. This is with www.morningstarskitours.com, it is not really a club, if you want to go you pay your money, if you don't want to go, you don't pay, no club dues.
Good luck! [img]graemlins/angel.gif[/img]
Not to mention a week in Austria for $1099!

Have you guys looked at one of the links from this site? Moguls is a very good Internet Travel Agency. I used them last year for my trip to Whistler. I was very impressed with the quality of their service.
