The Snow Junkies – Sticker Shock: Vail and Aspen Ski Tickets Hit New Highs

Sticker Shock: Vail and Aspen Ski Tickets Hit New Highs

Chief Snow Junkie January 2, 2013 0

If this is what your life looks like, then you can probably ignore this article.

For years, ski areas flirted with the $100 price tag for a daily lift ticket. But now that the seal has been broken (around the 2010 season), the floodgates have opened.

Vail has bumped their one-day lift ticket to an astounding $129 while Aspen hovers around a budget value of $117. Vail and Aspen have had a long running battle for the most expensive lift ticket in the country, but the only thing that these numbers mean is that if you’re buying a single day lift ticket, then you’re a sucker.

Buy your tickets online, buy multiple days, or even skip these mountains to save a boatload of cash. At Vail, you have even have the option of the amazing Epic Pass. I figured out that during the 2010-2011 ski season when I paid around $5.75 per day to ride Vail.
