Vermont Lift Ticket Prices Increase 9%
The average weekend non-holiday adult ticket price is now $115.
Inflation, increased demand, and mega-pass business models appear to be putting more upward pressure on retail ticket prices in Vermont. Prices are set to jump 9% this winter, following an 8% increase last winter.
The average weekend full day adult lift ticket at a chairlift-served ski area including tax and RFID fees is $114.82, as compared to $105.40 last year. The median price is $96, a 4% increase compared to last season.
All but three areas increased prices this season. Seven ski areas have prices in excess of $100, all of which are on either the Epic or Ikon Pass.
The most expensive full price ticket in the state is Sugarbush, coming in at $185.20. The rate, which includes tax and excludes early purchase discounts, is a 14% increase over last season.
The least expensive ticket in the state continues to be Quechee, which crossed the $50 threshold with 6% increase.Source: "NewEnglandSkiIndustry.com"
