Steamboat Ski Resort, a member of the Ikon Pass and a top-notch resort located in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, has just announced an increase in single-day lift tickets for the third year in a row, this time surpassing the $250 mark. During holiday weekends, you can now expect to pay $269 when showing up to the ticket booth the same day you intend to ski. Last season, the maximum price rose to $225 from $199.

Regular non-holiday days are a much more reasonable $135.

Will you usually pay $269 to ski? No, not usually. It is important to note that although that price figure seems daunting, there are many easy ways to save money by either booking in advance, online, in a package deal, multiple-day ticket, not during a holiday, or any combination of those five.

  1. Unbelievable. After skiing for over 50 years in Colorado, these prices are disgusting and designed only for the rich. I am going to hang up a sport I used to love. I cannot have fun at these prices…I guess the monopolistic corporations have finally succeeded where financial gain and greed outweighs providing enjoyment unless you have a large bank account. It’s a sad day for sure!

  2. Inflation hurts. Lol

    Hopefully you bought your house recently. Hold onto your seats kids. The next couple years are going to be bumpy.

    Belligerent stimulus and socialist spending is going to have some incredibly inflationary results.

  3. Garbage ski areas. I have 5 more yrs and I will have skied for 70 yrs. After that, I’m hanging them up. The sport I love has been hijacked by corps.

Got an opinion? Let us know...
