Thanks to early snow that keeps on falling, the 2019-2020 winter season promises to bring many skiers to Summit County. But cost can be a stumbling block, so your Breckenridge Associates Realtors thought you might like a little ‘how-to’ guide for finding the best discounts for skiing or riding this winter at Summit County’s top-rated ski resorts.

Call the ticket office:

You won’t find this option advertised online, but if you’re willing to wait until noon or 2 p.m. to hit the slopes there are ‘day-of’ discounts to be had. This is the perfect alternative for those who want to sleep in, have a leisurely brunch and get in lift line when many skiers who got out early are thinking about lunch on the mountain. Pricing is available over the phone or at the window. Breckenridge’s ticket office number is (970) 423-7097.

Plan ahead:

Buy tickets online, in advance:
Online prices are 25 to 48 percent lower than when purchased at the ticket window. The biggest discounts apply to purchases made seven days in advance, but discounts apply even on day-of purchases, as long as tickets are bought online. 

The EPIC passes are by far and away the best value ski passes for skiing at Breckenridge ski resort. Normally these heavily discounted lift tickets are on sale from the end of the ski season through about Thanksgiving. Offering the full EPIC pass that allows access to all the ski resorts owned or managed by Vail Resorts, to many other season pass options and multi-day lift ticket options - Be sure to check in with the Breckenridge ski resort website in the spring for these options -

Military discount:
Our Summit County ski resorts honor the service of our valued military personnel. That means both active duty and retired military receive great discounts at Breckenridge. Tickets are $113/adult, $73/child (12 and under). Immediate family with dependent ID may also receive the discount. Tickets must be purchased at the ticket window and you will be asked to show your military ID. Keystone also offers these steep discounts; inquire with their ticket office for pricing: call (970) 423-7118.
