Colorado Ski Lift Tickets Break $100 Barrier

Vail, CO – Lift tickets at some ski resorts have flirted with the $100 mark in recent years, seen by some industry observers as a significant price barrier. But lift prices at several Colorado resorts will exceed the $100 mark for the first time this holiday season, some by a wide margin.nThe websites for Vail Mountain and Beaver Creek, both owned by Vail Resorts, indicate that the two ski areas will charge $108 for a walk-up window rate during the busy Christmas week, from Dec. 26-31. The two are also charging $102 now through Dec. 25, and again Jan. 1-14.

Breckenridge, also owned by Vail Resorts, will charge $104 during the peak holidays, while the company’s Keystone Resort will seek $99 from walk-up window buyers during the same period. Holiday skiers can keep their daily rate below $100 per day at all four Vail Resorts mountains in Colorado by purchasing lift tickets online at least seven days in advance.
