Getting a deal on lift tickets when you don’t have a season pass is the name of the game. If said deal can also go to benefit a good cause it’s a win-win.
Ski Utah, Backcountry.com have teamed up with the Utah Avalanche Center to offer lift tickets from 8 of the 13 Utah resorts. 100% of the proceeds go to the Utah Avalanche Center. Yes, I said 100%!
An obvious omission from the list of resorts offering tickets into the mix are Alta, Snowbird and Solitude. Unless they sold out before I could get to the deal page, which could very well be the case.
But be sure to get them fast as the cause the deals are HOT and quantity is limited.
In fact, The Canyons, Powder Mountain and Snowbasin lift tickets are gone, already! I’m not sure just how many there were, but given the fact that the deal was announced this morning on the Utah Avalanche Center’s daily update these were hot deals:
- $43 (normal price is $63) for Snowbasin
- $40 (normal price is $56) for Powder Mountain
- $50 (normally $75) for The Canyons.
I’m not sure if begging, pleading and sniveling will help but you could always chime in over on the Ski Utah blog and see what they say. Perhaps if enough people beg and plead Powder Mountain, The Canyons and Snowbasin will offer up a few more lift tickets so those like me can pick up some for stocking stuffers.
After all, it’s for a fantastic organization – the Utah Avalanche Center.
