Liftopia: the Lift Ticket Search Engine

Liftopia is the full service search engine for lift tickets. The platform has deals available at over 150 ski areas across North America, and they are growing quickly. The simple to use website offers a quick way to find deals as well as discover new ski resorts that you’ve not visited.

How to find deals on Liftopia

If you are looking for deals and are relatively flexible in terms of the mountain that you want to visit you can search by region (Colorado, Northern California, etc.) and get a listing of all of the deals within that larger area. You can then filter those results based on when you want to go and how many days you want a lift ticket for. This quick and simple search engine lets you very easily browse through all of the deals.

How Liftopia gets good deals

The age-old question — can’t I just get a better deal by going directly to the ski resort in person or their website? Because many of the deals that Liftopia provides are online, date-specific products that are purchased in advance, resorts can safely lock in business without hurting on-mountain sales. According to Liftopia, this means that if you’re willing to jump through some hoops and purchase a non-refundable, date-specific ticket, you can purchase lift tickets that are as much as 90% off on-mountain rates.

Learning about new Ski Resorts

Liftopia does a good job of detailing each resort that they work with for the fundamental details such as the number of trails available to skiers and snowboarders of different experience levels, when they are open and what their current status is in terms of trails open and the quality of the powder on the mountain. This can be extremely helpful particularly if you’re planning on heading to the resort within a few days.
