Not everyone has enough time to utilize a season ski pass. But paying full price at the ticket window can add up...fast! The good news is, with a little planning, there are ways to save on daily lift tickets.
Some of the tips below are perfect for a single day, while others offer a flexible mid-point between buying a day at a time and a full season pass. The key point I want to make is that planning ahead saves money. Combine some of the ideas below and you'll save even more. For example, buy a mid-week ticket online, a few weeks in advance, and you could save nearly $30 a day at Brighton.
How to Save Money on Daily Lift Tickets
Yeti Pass - The Yeti Pass is good for one lift ticket at 15 Utah ski and snowboard resort during the 2020-21 season. This is perfect for locals or visitors who like to explore. Priced at $649, you’ll save money even if you don’t hit all 15. It’s a great companion pass with the 5th and 6th Grade Passport so the whole family can ski/ride together and save.
5th and 6th Grade Passport – Speaking of the Passport, this is the best deal going and you don’t have to be a Utah resident to use it!
Ski City Super Pass – If you’re visiting the Salt Lake Area (a.k.a. Ski City), The Super Pass is a smart and flexible way to save. It costs less than paying at the window and gives you the option to ski either Alta Ski Area, Brighton, Snowbird, or Solitude Mountain Resort each day. The discounts start when you buy three days, and increase as you buy more. Plus, you have 14 days to use your passes, upping your flexibility.
Planning ahead saves money
Ski Mid-Week – Many resorts, like Brighton for example, discount their ticket prices mid-week, but there is a catch, they need to be purchased online. For an even bigger discount, buy in advance. Plan ahead so you don’t miss out.
Buy Online and In Advance – Just like the mid-week deals above, advance planning pays. Simply buying online versus showing up at the window can save you money. For example, you can save up to 20% buying Alta Ski Area tickets online! Here's a handy link to all 15 Utah resorts ticket pages.
Multi-Day and Save – Another way to reduce per ticket price is to buy several at a time. Most of the time they need to be used within a set number of days.

Is it possible for overseas visitors to buy a Yeti Pass?
I will be visiting from the UK in early March 2019 and would like to purchase a Yeti Pass so that I can try out lots of different ski areas in Utah. Unfortunately, it seems like the website will only accept US addresses.
