Tip #1: Book your tickets with lodging to get a cheaper price. When you book them together some places will give you a discount. You will need lodging anyway so why not save a little money that you can spend on something else.
Tip #2: Buying a season pass can save you money if you ski a lot. It will be cheaper than paying for a few one day passes or even a multi-pass.
Tip #3: Look early online for deals. Keep checking often before all the good deals sell out. Some sites online will have better prices if you book as early as possible.
Tip #4: Buy your apparel online so that you can shop around a get the best price. Buying apparel at a ski store can be very expensive and you will pay more than you have to.
Tip #5: Buy your tickets when there are no holidays coming up. Tickets cost more for times like spring break and you can save a lot of money booking on the off season.
Tip #6: Pack your own lunch and keep snacks in your pockets. It is much cheaper to buy your own and take it with you. This will give you a little boost while riding on the ski lift.
Tip #7: Book after spring break or Christmas when the holidays are over. There will be cheaper prices at that time that you can take advantage of.
Tip #8: Some resorts offer discounts to students or military so make sure to bring identification that shows you either of those two things.
Tip #9: Ski in the middle of the week when prices are lower. This could give you a good discount because people do not book as much through the week.
Tip #10: Sometimes it is cheaper to book at a small resort and you can take advantage of the smaller crowds and more intimate settings.
Tip #11: If you drive instead of fly you can save a lot of money. Get some friends together and share a road trip. When you divide the price of gas with your friends, it should be pretty cheap and you get to spend more time with them.
