Lift tickets are as high as $209 these days and season passes can be upwards of $700… so where does all that money go? This video, courtesy of Wendover Productions, breaks down the expenses of ski resorts, discusses conglomeration in the industry, and how climate change may affect business in the future.
With cited sources, this in-depth video thoroughly explains the in’s and out’s of the ski resort industry. I like cheap ski passes as much as the next person, but before you complain about rising pass prices, give this video a watch and you’ll quickly understand- running a ski resort isn’t cheap.
