Buy Your Lift Tickets Now, Schuss for Less Later

I know, I know we haven't even hit Halloween and already I'm pushing ski season. But the fact is that many discounts aren't available once the snows actually on the ground. You have early bird it to fly down the slopes affordably.

That's certainly the case with the discount lift ticket broker Liftopia. On its site it lists discounts to virtually every skiiable mountain in North American and many in other parts of the world, as well. But some of the discounts are already dwindling; and others have early booking deadlines. Head to the Monarch Mountain Resort area of the site (its in Colorado) and you'll find $12 Wednesday lift tickets available with a note that the next day the price is $53. Read closer and you'll find that there are only 3 lift tickets left at the $12 pricetag for the early March date that's on sale.

I'm also seeing $51 tickets at lux Stowe Mountain in early December (a savings of 15%), $19 tickets at Wildcat Mountain in New Hampshire in December (a savings of 70%) and $40 ski tickets in Lake Tahoe (an 18% discount).

Visit the Liftopia site (see above) to learn more. I've found it to be an excellent resource in the past.
