Variable Pricing Comes to Jiminy Peak


HANCOCK, Mass. (Date) – As skiing has begun for the start of the 2017-18 ski season, the Fairbank Group of New England ski resorts – Bromley Mountain, Cranmore Mountain Resort and Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort – today officially launched airline-style variable lift ticket pricing for skiers and riders able to plan ahead and purchase tickets online before they arrive.

Discounts of 30 to 50% off the walk-up ticket window price represent the resorts’ largest lift ticket savings ever offered and provide substantial savings in exchange for a non-refundable/non-transferrable advance sale ticket purchased online. The percentage savings on holidays and weekends are slightly less than midweek rates. Visitors access the resort website, click the pricing calendar, then select their age group, number of tickets required, and specific days between now and April 2018. After approving the itinerary, they check-out and receive email confirmation to present to the ticket window upon arrival.

Similar to airfares, lift ticket rates may expire, sell out or be priced higher the closer you get to the day you plan to ski, and advance tickets are limited, according to Michael Van Eyck, assistant general manager of Bromley Mountain in southern Vermont.

“We want to reward skier and riders for planning ahead and committing early. Advance sales also provide us with a projection of how busy we will be on any given day,” said Van Eyck, who reminds skiers and riders to check the websites of each resort for specific restrictions.

Some sample ticket prices reveal substantial savings:
• At New Hampshire’s Cranmore Mountain Resort, purchase an adult ticket for New Year’s Day 2018, and the advance purchase price is $49, a $26 savings off the walk-up $75 window rate that day, (35 percent discount). The same price is available most midweeks in March unless it sells out early.
• On the Bromley Mountain website, for instance, skiers can pre-purchase Dec. 15 lift tickets for $42, a $29 savings (48 percent off) the walk-up rate of $80. Buy the first week of January for $49, and the savings is as high as $31 per ticket, or 39 percent off the $80 same day ticket window rate, assuming its still available at time of purchase.
• Plan in advance to ski Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort in western Massachusetts during the first week of March and the $43 advance ticket represents a 43% savings compared to the walk-up rate of $76, assuming the ticket is purchased soon enough and doesn’t sell out, which skiers will know at the time of purchase.

Famed American poet Ralph Waldo Emerson, a native Bostonian, once said, “The future belongs to those who prepare for it.” In this case, the earlier you plan the more you save.
