In 1972, a Breckenridge, CO lift ticket cost $6.00.  Today, a Breckenridge lift ticket costs $140…

Daily lift tickets aren’t getting any cheaper.  In fact, they’re consistently getting more expensive every year.  Remember hearing people say:  “Someday lift tickets will be a hundred dollars!”  Well, that day has come and gone.  Vail’s holiday lift ticket prices are up to $160 per day this year…

On the flip side, season passes seem cheaper than ever.  Vail’s epic pass is only $689 and it gives you unlimited access to Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone, Park City, Canyons, Heavenly, Northstar, Kirkwood, Afton Alps, Mt. Brighton, and Arapahoe Basin.

  1. While I mean no offense to the writers of this blog site, I would suggest digging a bit deeper to get stories in the ski industry. Every article posted for the past two weeks seems like it has been on unofficial networks the day before, same story wording has just been changed; or it’s a case of simply getting clicks with inaccurate or baiting information.

  2. bahahaha don’t go to canyons that place is a rip off. it used to be called wolf mt. before that park west. they change the name whenever it changes ownership. bad terrain bad snow tonnes of lifts is what your paying for. head to little or big cottonwood if you want to ski Utah properly and avoid park city all together.

  3. Back in the late 70’s while going to CU Boulder you could get 2 for 1 tickets to A-Basin for $12 at the King Super Markets on certain days. Now they are $85 at the walk up ticket window or about 72 if you buy online in advance.
