The best savings at ski resorts is always to buy a season pass, but if you are only coming for a few days .... no cost savings there! Locals can score season tickets for under $300 in some cases and these passes can be good for more than one ski area - something that is unheard of in Oregon, sadly enough.There used to be more special deals for the hills here in Colorado, but they seem to have dried up recently. With walk up day lift tickets costing more than $90 you need to do your research carefully. A recent online offering was given for the ski resorts run by Intrawest - Winter Prk/Mary Jane, Copper Mountain and Steamboat Springs. For $99 you can ski at one day at each of the resorts = $33 a day ... a cool savings. The online deal seems to be offered in January - at least the last two years.
