Best Lift Ticket Deals in the U.S.


Some mountains offer deals on select days and then there are those few classic resorts that believe a whole family should be able to afford to get on the mountain any day of the season. Some of these mountains are on the smaller side but offer enough terrain to keep any skier or rider busy.

From the East to the West, we’ve rounded up 11 mountains with low lift ticket prices and a whole lot of value. 

Best Deals in the East

Northeast Slopes—Vt.

Adult lift ticket: $15 ($10 on Wednesday)

This mountain may be on the smaller side with just 360 feet of vertical and around 40 acres of skiable terrain, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in price and charm. These slopes are known for their friendly volunteers who are usually on hand to show you around or give you a quick lesson and you can't beat the price.

Pine Mountain—Mich.

Adult lift ticket: $20 weekdays; $42 weekends

With 500 feet of vertical and 160 skiable acres, Pine Mountain is a local favorite. Its also the only mountain in the Upper Peninsula where two kids (12 and under) can ski free with the purchase of one adult lift ticket.

Black Mountain—Maine Mountain

Adult lift ticket: $25

Maine's fourth highest vertical comes at a very reasonable price. Just $25 a day will get you access to 1,100 feet of downhill on 143 acres.

Mount Peter—N.Y. Peter

Adult lift ticket: $25 weekdays; $45 weekends

Mount Peter is perhaps best known for its beginner programs and terrain, but in reality there is something for every skier or boarder. The 79-year-old resort may be on the smaller side (450 feet of vertical on 70 skiable acres), but their offerings, old school friendliness and extensive night skiing terrain will surely win anyone over.


Adult lift ticket: $40-$52 at window, but you can get tickets starting at $18 if you buy online now.
