Question by Meghan: What time of year is best to get discounts and deals when you go Skiing in Keystone?
We want to go Skiing this year but as a young couple just starting off we are on a budget…any tips or Ideas about how to save money? Also what month is the best to go for a better deal?
Answer by Chris
If each of you are planning on skiing more than just a few days, definitely check into getting a season pass. Check now! Do the math and see if it will save you money (and time buying tix) with a pass. As the season starts the cheaper Colorado Pass deal expires come Halloween and the Denver Snowsports Expo around the first weekend November in downtown. You might be able to get a pass even into early December. Check the internet or call the Resort.
If you don’t get a season pass, it is common to only get a decent discount on lift tix is to get a deal thru lodging deals.
Deep discount lodging deals are to be had mainly before Dec.12 or so and after maybe March 29. There are deals to be had when the snow is best like mid-season but you have to be able to watch their website and the internet and go when you see the deal is offered.
For lodging, I like to check the usual hotel websites and vrbo.com
