Tips for Paying Less for New Mexico Lift Tickets

The best way to save money is to plan your ski-cation well in advance. Like almost everything else vacation related, the longer you wait to buy your lift tickets, the more expensive they will be. Buying in advance can open up huge discounts as resorts presell tickets for less popular dates. Whether you are using our deals or deals offered directly from the resorts, buy at least a week in advance.

Another way to save money on your lift tickets is to take advantage of discounts that the resort offers locally. This includes ski-and-stay package collaboration with local off-site hotels as well as coupons they distribute to local restaurants and grocery stores. Some of these strategies only work for local residents, however, and even then there’s a little bit of legwork. Plus, locals and out-of-state guests alike can find comparable discounts with online pricing and comparison-shopping tool.

Avoid buying lift tickets at the window if you can, at least unless you’ve brought coupons with you. This is the last place you have to buy a ticket, and the ski resort knows it. So expect to pay the highest price possible.
