Hunting elevator tickets at grocery stores
Back in the 1990s and early 2000s, there was a tremendous shift in the ski industry to collaborate on grocery stores and ski areas to sell discounted lift tickets. Switches to grocery stores are still on sale now, but unfortunately, rates are no longer lowered. Even during the flight times at King's, Safeway, Costco and Albertsons grocery stores are the same prices as their ski resorts.
It is common knowledge in the skiing industry that buying your tickets ahead of time can save you considerable time. The advent of online brokers and discounted ski passes are easily available online. A simple search for discounted prices at your favorite ski resort will lead you to many options you probably do not know are available to you. Before you spend your precious time in the car looking for deals in grocery stores like Safeway, King Sopers or Costco, check online first.
1. King Superpowers discount ski lift tickets
King Sippers is the most popular grocery store selling crossovers. This is especially true for Colorado skiers or vacationers. In recent years, King Soppers has had good prices in all major Colorado stores. This has changed in recent years especially for the peak season. During the high season, there are no longer any discounts in King's County (Thanksgiving, Christmas, President's weekends and most of March). In the low season, in most grocery stores, ticket prices are the same as you would find in a ticket window.
2. Safeway Discount Ski Passes
Special offers at Safeway Elevator Crossings are very similar to King Soopers, and the price you pay depends on the time of year you plan to ski. It is advisable to book your elevator tickets in advance instead of waiting for the last minute.
3. Costco Discount Skis
According to Costco, there are skier deals in California and Utah, but there are no Colorado discounts. The cost of different ski resorts in Utah and California varies greatly depending on when you want to go up the mountain. Check your local Costco outlet for options. Or if you prefer to save on gas, money and time, just search online for better deals. Most online travel portals that sell discounted ski passes will email you confirmation. After that, you only need to print your confirmation and bring it to the box office to return your ski passes.
4) REI stores
Some REI stores sell elevator tickets via Ticket West. Prices vary depending on the season.
