DISCOUNTED SKI PASSES
Depending upon the time of the year, there are discounts on season ski passes and discounts on lift tickets. The trick is to find them whenever they pop up. The Pittsburgh Ski Club tries to help you locate them and tries to encourage the patronage of the local tri–state ski resorts by listing the opportunities for these discounts. Listed below are some of these opportunities for local ski resorts. For the very latest prices, we suggest that you contact the resort directly, either by phoning them or accessing their websites.
If you know of any other discounts that you would like to share, or if you have any questions about the ones we have listed below, please send our local skiing rep an email.
Each ski area keeps up to date information about their Annual Season Pass rates on their website. Rather than duplicate that information here, we recommend that you visit the appropriate ski resort’s website. You can do so easily from our Ski Reports page.
