Buying Utah Lift Tickets
Utah lift tickets are across the board probably the best value in the whole country. You get world class skiing, deep snow, tons of vertical, fewer crowds, and all for less than you would pay in other states for similar conditions. While Park City, The Canyons, and Deer Valley are going to top out at over $100/day, we usually have deals with resorts like Alta and Snowbird that will be in the range of $65/day. Think about the most heralded resorts in the country: Jackson Hole, Vail, Breckenridge, Big Sky, Sun Valley. They are all going to charge you way more to ski hills that on their best day are only as good as Snowbird and Alta. The range in cost of Utah lift tickets in the 2018-19 ski season will be between $40-$160, which is Cherry Peak on the low end and Deer Valley on the high. Park City and the Canyons built an interconnect gondola for $50 million, which is pretty sweet, but has increased their lift ticket prices in recent years.
The Trick to Buying Utah Lift Tickets
Simply put, buy early. Utah lift ti9ckets are not too dissimilar from booking a hotel room, concert tickets, or airline tickets. You need to buy online in advance to get the deals. Park City and the Canyons are the most expensive resorts in the state, and the only way to get lift tickets cheaper, is to buy from those resorts, online, at least a week in advance. We sell lift tickets to almost all the resorts except PC/Canyons, and to get our deals you need to buy online a couple days in advance. Let me tell you, it’s every day during the season that someone writes the night before or the morning of begging for deals, and they just aren’t available. If you learn only one thing from our site, about any product, it’s to buy in advance. There are deals out there, but please please please stop thinking that the only place to buy lift tickets is at the ticket window.
Don’t Buy from the Ticket Window
We talk a lot about the “window rate” on this site, which is the cost of tickets if you walk up to the ticket office window. Here is the most important thing to know about the window rate: this is the absolute highest price you can pay for lift tickets. There is literally no other place in the world that is trying (and succeeding) at selling lift tickets for more than the ticket window does. Unlike concert tickets, resorts don’t have a capacity. They can’t drive up the price for demand based on limited supply. So if you find yourself at the lift ticket window, you are doing the worst thing for your wallet that you can do. Never pay the window rate.
Half Day Utah Lift Tickets
Half day tickets are a pet peeve of ours. There are times to buy them and times not to. So just make good decisions. For starters, people assume that half day lift tickets are about or close to half price. They are not. They are usually about 20-25% off the full day price. Most places start their half day tickets at 12:30, so you’ll have 3.5 hours to ski if you buy them exactly at 12:30. You can only buy half day Utah lift tickets at the window. They are not sold anywhere else. And, just to make sure you were paying attention, you remember what happens at the window, right? Some places include night skiing in the half day price and some don’t. If they do, this is a great deal. Sometimes though, you don’t get to the hill until after the half days have gone on sale and you want to get some turns in. By all means, do it. What we just HATE to see is people waiting around for the half days. “Oh, it’s already 11, I might as well wait and buy a half day ticket.” Don’t do this. You might save $15, but you are costing yourself time to ski. If you are vacationing from a state where you can’t ski, don’t sit it out just to pocket a buck. You came here to ski. Go ski.
