PARK CITY, Utah — After taxes and fees, a peak season day of lift ticket will cost over $300 at both Deer Valley and Park City Mountain for the 2023-24 ski season.
Last year early purchase peak season prices topped out at $259 a day at both resorts. Earlier this year TownLift reported that a peak season day of lift ticket at Deer Valley would cost $289 or $315 after taxes and fees. Park City Mountain recently posted its peak season walk up lift ticket window pricing at $299 or $325 after taxes and fees.
The continued escalation of peak season day of ticket pricing is consistent with the industry wide trend of pushing snow sport customers away from last minute ticket purchases and into a multi pass or full season pass product. For example you can currently buy the adult full season unrestricted Epic pass for $949, or the equivalent of 3 days of peak season day of skiing at Park City Mountain.
The marketing message from both resorts is to buy early and lock in discounted ticket pricing. Both resorts are offering significant discounts off of the walk up ticket window price for purchasing lift tickets in advance.
