Ski season is already here for most resorts and my family is in full preparation getting on the mountains. Although some resorts on the east coast are still awaiting opening day, some of the resorts out west opened earlier than ever. Ski season is a great family activity, but the big hurdle can be actually affording that ski vacation. There is the pricey ski gear, hotels, potentially airfare and then last but not least, the outrageously expensive lift tickets. While there are many ways to get discounted ski lift ticket discounts, one of the best options is through Costco.
Both Costco online and in-store are loading up their stock with discounted lift tickets, which will save you a ton of money on your next ski trip. You’ll actually find inventory to be different both in-store and online, so I suggest checking both options.
In-store Costco Lift Ticket Deals
In my local store, there are discounted Costco lift tickets at both Killington and Nashoba Valley Ski Area. The Killington lift ticket discount is a 3-pack for just $259.99, bringing the cost of each day down to $86.33. They are unrestricted tickets and can be used on peak holiday ski days. The window ticket rate for a peak full day is $130, so this is a nice savings. The Nashoba Valley deal is even better, in my opinion, where it is just a $100 gift card for $74.99. That is a 25% discount and can be used on all different lift ticket options. This mountain is pretty close to our house, which makes this a great discount for last minute ski days.
You’ll notice that every Costco offers different options based on location, so your best bet is to head into your local Costco to see the options offered. Also keep in mind that additional Costco lift ticket options could be added within the next few weeks.
Online Costco Lift Ticket Deals
Costco online might have slightly different options than what you see in your local store. Right now, online is showing deals for six different resorts. More might be added as the weeks go on and some could potentially sell out before the winter ends. If skiing at Homewood Mountain, Big Bear Mountain Resorts, Killington Ski Resorts, Whitefish Mountain, Mt. Hood Mountain or Mammoth Mountain is in the cards for this winter, you might want to consider these lift ticket options.
With Vail Resorts buying up many mountains and offering the Epic Pass, I have noticed that many mountains that used to offer lift ticket deals at Costco are no longer there. Fortunately though, there are still some mountain options to save you money,
With ski trips costing quite a bit of money these days, purchasing lift tickets at a discount is a great way to save money. I personally have saved a good amount over the years with these Costco lift ticket discounts. I’ve even been able to return some at the end of the season if they were never used. I am not sure if Costco will still allow returns, but it is worth asking when you check out.
