5 Tips for Connecticut Lift Tickets
- Avoid the Window
The biggest piece of advice we can give is to plan ahead and avoid paying the resort’s “window” prices. In fact, you can even think of these fees as the retail price by which you can measure the savings you find. With this in mind, the easiest way to save is online. Most resorts offer discounted lift tickets through their websites, but you may be able to find even bigger discounts through the Connecticut Ski Authority. Our site also offers a great way to compare ticket prices from different resorts.
- Ski All Night Long
Okay, maybe not all night. But, many Connecticut area resorts offer discounted half-day tickets in the evening, when most skiers are out to dinner. Most of these evening half-day tickets start at 4 pm. Whether it’s the first day of a longer trip or you’re a Connecticut resident taking a half-day off work, this type of discount is a great way to save a few bucks. And as a bonus, you’ll be able to watch the sun go down from the top of the mountain as you finish your day, which makes for a romantic end to a skiing adventure.
- Over the Hump
Most skiers plan their trips around the weekends, but for many, this is a fiscally unwise move. Resorts tend to be significantly less crowded during the week and as a result, many offer mid-week discounted tickets. If you can plan to do the bulk of your skiing during the week, then you can normally save up to 50% per lift ticket.
- Join the Club
There are a number of skiing clubs catering to the New England area, including Connecticut. One of the perks of club membership is 50% off lift tickets at most area resorts. In most cases, club membership only requires paying dues, which are often as low as $25 per year. This isn’t the only way to take advantage of various bundling opportunities and group discounts.
- Use Your Education, Experience, or Numbers
Mohawk Mountain offers $20 off lift tickets for student with proof of a valid college ID. Similarly, most resorts offer a senior discount, with proof of a Medicare card. You can also ask if the resort honors any service member discounts. These types of promotions can net qualifying individuals a significant savings on lift tickets.
