5 Utah Ski Resorts That Give You The Most Bang For Your Buck

Utah’s snow is legendary, and our resorts offer some of the best skiing terrain in the country, but lift prices can be expensive. We have nothing but love for our Wasatch Front resorts, but you’ll want to plan on shelling out around $100 for a day pass, and prices can be as high as $180+.

If you’re willing to travel a bit farther and ski at a resort with fewer amenities, you can enjoy a day on the slopes without taking out second mortgage. Check out these five ski resorts that will give you the most bang for your buck.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Pro tip for skiers all over the state: The window rate for lift tickets is typically a lot higher than if you purchase your ticket in advance online, and that’s true for the Wasatch Front resorts, too. We’ve seen discount rates as high as $67% at some resorts, depending on the day of the week and how far in advance you purchase. Serious skiers purchase season passes (buy during spring/summer months for the best deal), which can bring your daily skiing price down a lot, depending on how many days you ski.
