San Francisco, CA - While skiing and riding are generally regarded as expensive sports, the bottom line is that it doesn't need to cost an arm and a leg for savvy shoppers. Even though leaves remain on the trees throughout ski country, ski resort lift ticket reseller Liftopia.com has launched its season pre-sale of lift tickets to resorts across North America, often at a steep discount for those willing to pre-purchase.

Liftopia offers skiers and snowboarders the ability to buy date-specific lift tickets and other on-mountain activities online and in advance for up to 80% off the ticket window prices. The online pre-season sale features more than 30,000 deals at more than 150 ski resorts across the continent, including such popular destinations as Utah's Park City Mountain Resort, Copper Mountain in Colorado, Sun Valley, Idaho and Alpine Meadows at Lake Tahoe. New for this season, Liftopia is selling discounted lift tickets to Alta Ski Area in Utah and Vermont's Stratton Mountain.
