Let’s Talk Lift Tickets – How to Save This Season

Temperatures drop, snow begins to fly, and suddenly the mood to buy lift tickets strikes quickly. But hey, it’s good you’re thinking about this now, especially since this is the best time to track ticket deals without breaking the bank. Although Season Passes are the easiest way to get the best value on skiing and riding of the season, we’re offering various ways to save on lift tickets for the 21/22 season.

Dynamic Ticket Pricing

Similar to last year, lift tickets are being sold dynamically. This means ticket prices will vary across different days, and prices will be based upon demand. A limited amount of tickets will be available at the initial discounted rate, and when those sell, different price tiers will be implemented. In simpler terms, the less inventory we have, the more prices will go up. Think of buying lift tickets in the same way you purchase plane tickets. If you wait until your travel day to buy airfare, you’re going to spend way more than you would have if you booked a few weeks in advance. With all of this in mind, we recommend buying early in order to get the best deal. This information is important to keep handy if you’re planning to make a trip to the mountain during times like December vacation weeks.

Quad Packs

Our ever-popular Quad Pack is back, and this year it’s accompanied with a Mid-Week option too. The Quad Pack gives you four, fully transferable lift tickets that can be used any time throughout the winter season. This means that you can share them with friends and family, or keep them all to yourself. If you opt for the Mid-Week Quad Pack, you’ll get mid-week, non-holiday only skiing for a lower price. We mean it when we say that Quad Packs are the best deal on lift tickets of the year, but they’re only on sale for a limited time. Snag yours before they go away for good after Wednesday, November 17th.

Mt. Ellen Deals

Another way to save is sticking to skiing and riding at Mt. Ellen. Mt. Ellen has a casual, local feel and provides some exciting and challenging terrain. Plus we’ve made some great investments over there for this season including the Vermont Adaptive Ski & Sports addition to the base lodge, some renovations and refreshing of the base lodge, a full snowmaking overhaul of our beginner Northstar terrain, and the new Miso Hungry food truck. By spending your day on the mountain’s 39 trails, premiere Reimergasse terrain park, seven lifts, and 11 wooded areas, you can get tickets for as low as $50. When you go to purchase a Mt. Ellen only ticket, you’ll notice that even during busy weekends and holidays you can find $79 lift tickets if you plan ahead. Similar to years past, we’ll be offering weekly discounted tickets on Thursdays. More information on that coming soon!
