Vermont ski resort trims prices

Lift tickets $10 cheaper than last year?

And savings up to 50 percent when they’re purchased online?

As other snow sports resorts throughout the country increased the cost of their lift tickets for the 2014-15 season, including Hidden Valley and Seven Springs in Western Pennsylvania, Bolton Valley in Vermont decided to lower its prices.

“We’re always trying to make skiing and snowboarding more accessible to everyone,” said Josh Arneson, the resort’s sales and marketing director. “By lowering ticket prices and unveiling an online store for even more savings, we hope to add more value to the whole experience.”

Mr. Arneson said the idea to reduce the price of lift tickets came from the resort’s owners, Doug Nedde and Larry Williams, both of whom have real estate businesses in nearby Burlington, and their management team.

If adults purchase lift tickets at the window, they’ll pay $49 midweek, $59 on weekends and $69 during peak holiday periods. But, by buying them online, they’ll pay only half as much. Read More
