Discount Lift Tickets
This information will help you find the best deals on Colorado Resort lift tickets and passes during your Colorado Vacation. Please note, this is an informational site ONLY, we do NOT sell lift tickets or season passes directly on this site. Start looking for discounted ski lift tickets in September or early October. Depending on the destination, discount ski & lift tickets must be booked 7 days in advance. Book your lift tickets online, at least 7 days prior to your first day on the mountain for the best rates. This will save you up to 25% off ticket window rates.
RESERVE ONLINE, 7+ IN ADVANCE
The best way to ensure you are getting the best rates on lift tickets is to reserve your tickets online at least 7 days prior to your first ski day. There are options for multiple days, adding on other resorts, such as days at Breckenridge or Vail, too. If you are planning more than one trip to the mountains over the winter, you might also consider purchasing a season pass. Some options will 'pay for themselves' after just 4 or 5 days out on the mountain!

Military Liberty Season Pass
Are you a member of the armed forces? Keystone has a special setup with any active duty military, Reservists, National Guard and dependents. Rocky Mountain Blue offers a Military Liberty Season Pass. This pass is good for unlimited skiing at Keystone or Arapahoe Basin. It can be purchased at the Keystone Resort Season Pass office in River Run Village. Even if you don’t have a Liberty Pass, simply show your military ID at the lift ticket window and you should be able to get a hefty discount.
Colorado Gem Card
Sign up for a Colorado Gem Card. These cards will give you discounts at other ski areas that are farther away. The closest resorts that accept this card are Arapahoe Basin and Loveland Ski areas. The cards are inexpensive and the discounts between the different resorts will quickly pay for this purchase.
Know someone with a season pass? Vail Resorts Season Pass holders usually can buy a lift ticket for you at a discounted price with ‘Buddy Passes’. The number of times they can do this is limited and the price depends on what date you are trying to use them. Passholder & ‘buddy’ must be present at the time of purchase.
Skiing and lift tickets is a serious business and you should NEVER cheat the system. Cheating the system includes using someone else’s season pass, clipping a pass from someone else’s jacket, or buying lift tickets from a resort employee. The consequences include full prosecution, jail time and extremely heavy fines. Skiing is a fun sport, but it costs money to participate. It’s not worth cheating the system.
