More Pow Less Money

September 24, 2011

Listen up all you tele-shred-heads. The trees are changing and winter is on its way, so it's time to get ready. No, that doesn't mean you should make micro-adjustments to your skis and bindings while wearing ski boots and watching your favorite shred flick for the 413th time (though I have been known to do that myself). Why not get ready for the season by doing something productive? Skiing keeps getting more expensive, but wallets seem to be getting thinner; so get on the ball early, and save some cash on lift tickets this ski season.

How? We are digging what Liftopia.com has going on. Liftopia.com boasts some absurdly good preseason lift ticket purchase prices. Lift tickets to nearly every resort in the country are on sale right now for up to 91% (yes you read that correctly) off. Getting these early deals is a great move whether you are planning on taking the family on a tele-cation this winter, or if you are a local looking to get a few cheap days at a new resort or in a resort at all (I'm talking to you crunchy, backcountry tele-guy).

Liftopia works just like a travel website - think Orbitz or Expedia - but instead of getting a middle seat on a crowded plane, you get a day of skiing at your favorite ski resort. There are even reviews of each resort to help you pick out which one is best for you. Get there early; prices are as good as they will ever be right now. With over 30,000 deals to choose from, you will certainly be able to find one that fits your budgetary and geographical restrictions. And with the money you save, you'll be able to get that new seven layer waterproof ski-mountaineering shell that tells everyone you wouldn't normally be at a resort if you hadn't gotten such a good deal on lift tickets (again, talking to you crunchy, backcountry tele-guy).
