The greatest snow on earth can sometimes come with a great big price tag. SkiUtah.com offers some helpful tips for hitting the slopes without hitting your bottom line.
- Ski during the week: In today’s work from home world it could be easier than ever to adjust your schedule to plan for a week day visit to the slopes. Since demand for passes is lower, you can take advantage of the cheaper weekday rates.
- Multi-day lift tickets: If you are planning to take full advantage of the ski season a multi-day lift ticket is something to consider. A Ski City Super Pass is one example that will get you savings on the Cottonwood Resorts. This multi-day Super Pass gives you a deep discount on lift tickets, customizable for 3-10 days. The pass allows you to bypass the ticket line, giving you faster access to the mountain. Every Super Pass comes with FREE transportation to and from the resorts on UTA ski buses and TRAX light rail. You also get equipment rental discounts at participating rental locations.
- Do you have little ones at home? Some resorts offer free skiing and snowboarding for kids! Make sure to visit your resort’s online page and check out the age restrictions.
- Half day passes allow you to ski in the afternoon and evening. Get work done in the morning, then hit the slopes and save some money by coming after lunch. Night skiing at Utah’s resorts is a great way to experience the mountain on a whole new level.
- SOS Outreach, a non profit program, works with Park City Resort to offer ski and ride experience to youth in the Summit and Wasatch County area. SOS’s program is offered to 370 local youth. Their program does not just focus on skiing, they teach you to relate well with others, responsible decision making, and understanding and managing feelings. According to the Park Record, parents can register their children in grades four through 12 for the introductory Learn to Ski/Ride program by emailing email@example.com.
