Most resorts offer a range of lift passes which can usually be bought on a daily or multiple-day basis. Weekly tickets will normally require an attached picture, so take a passport-sized photo with you. Riders staying for a few months can buy season passes, and although expensive, you will make a massive saving in the long run. You may have the choice of one resort or an interlinked area, sometimes you may even get a free day in a nearby affiliated resort. Ask at the office when you buy your pass. Discounted passes are available for kids, old age pensioners, locals and sometimes students. You’ll also find prices changes during the season; at low season you can pay around 25% less. Resorts have their own polices on reimbursement if lifts are shut.
Many resorts offer beginner packages that offer good value for money. You get a lesson, full equipment hire and a lift pass that gives you access to the beginners slopes. Its also possible to get terrain park only lift passes at some resorts, and a few even have a few free beginner lifts, so make sure you check before shelling out on a full pass if you’re not going to use it.
