The 10 Best Cheap Ski Resorts for 2014
By Sarah McMinn, Cheapism.com
Finding a cheap ski destination is tricky. Ski resorts often charge $100 for an adult lift ticket, and that's just for the daytime activity. Then there's the cost of transportation, lodging, local travel, dining, and equipment rental. We identified 10 locations where the skiing is good and cheap. Most ski areas are found in the western and northeastern regions of the country. The west is known for high-quality slopes and snow while the northeast offers smaller mountains and less reliable snow conditions.
Experts we spoke with stressed that a few minutes of online research can uncover leads to cheap ski destinations. Liftopia.com is a clearinghouse for deals on lift tickets, for example. Sites like Ski.com and SnoPak.com showcase package deals. And TheSkiLift.org is dedicated to ride-sharing arrangements and social networking for skiers and snowboarders.
