Jiminy Peak just announced that they are launching a new ticket option for those skiers or boarders who want an alternative to the usual—i.e., expensive—pass options.
With daily lift tickets running anywhere from $75 to more than $200 per day, skiing has become an increasingly financially demanding sport. Skiers are figuring out that if they are planning on heading to the mountain more than five or six days a winter, then a season pass is the best option for enjoying the lowest lift ticket prices per day. But this entails anywhere from around a five hundred to thousand dollar upfront investment and may not be a good fit for the casual skier or snowboarder who only wants to go a handful of times a season.
