Things You Will Need

Step 1

VISIT EBAY TO OBTAIN LIFT TICKETS:

Many Ebay sellers offer lift tickets at a reduced rate. The sellers are a mix of individuals with leftover ski passes, as well as wholesalers. First visit the ski resort's website to find out what the seasonal rates are, and then explore Ebay for deals.

Step 2

SEARCH THROUGH CRAIGSLIST:

If you are going on a ski trip in Colorado, you might want to visit the Denver craigslist site, as you will find more sellers, than from a smaller town (such as Fort Collins). Many individuals sell passes here; you just need to be very careful in how you arrange for selling and pickup. It is usually best to do this in person at a public place.

Step 3

EXPLORE "STAY AND SKI" PACKAGES:

Many resorts offer savings in a bundle package: you stay at their hotel, and the lift tickets are offered at a savings. Look at hotels in ski resort towns, or run a search on the internet for "stay and ski Vail", for example.

Step 4

ASK FOR A DISCOUNT:

Some resorts offer discounts, depending on your affiliation. Military, AAA, or state resident are all examples of discounts that some resorts offer. These vary from resort to resort, so you need to do your research beforehand.

Step 5

VISIT THE LOCAL SUPERMARKET:

Local supermarkets sometimes offer discounted tickets, usually for one day passes. This is true, for example, in Colorado at the King Super supermarket chains.
