Do ski passes sell out?
Prices tend to shoot up the closer you get to opening day and some passes sell out completely even before the start of the season, so the best advice we can offer: Buy your pass early. Pass prices tend to jump up in early fall, often as soon as September.
Should I buy lift tickets in advance?
We recommend booking your lift tickets, lessons and Skitube online well in advance to secure the best prices. The health and safety of our staff, guests and mountain communities is our highest priority. The NSW Government are frequently updating travel restrictions and stay-at-home orders.
Why are lift tickets so expensive now?
Many ski areas are raising the price of a day lift ticket to artificial heights on purpose in order to encourage people to buy a season pass instead. With season passes, the ski areas get most of their money right up front, even if the season ends up bringing very little snow.
Are ski resorts limited lift tickets?
It’ll come as no surprise that ski resorts are restricting capacity this year—some by as much as 50 percent. Generally speaking, resorts are doing away with undated or day-of tickets this year. Instead they are releasing a limited number of lift tickets in advance that must be purchased online or via the resort’s app.
