Where to find the best deals for Breckenridge Lift Tickets & FAQ's


Buy your lift tickets online and get the lowest price guarantee!  Purchase tickets 7 days or more in advance for the biggest savings. Purchase tickets up to midnight the night before you ski and still save money off the regular ticket window price.

Epic Day Lift Tickets
Find lift tickets to all your favorite resorts here: Vail, Breckenridge, Beaver Creek, Whistler Blackcomb, Park City, Keystone, Heavenly, Northstar, and Kirkwood.


The cutoff date for the season pass is tentatively set for December 2, 2018. If you miss the cutoff date for a season pass and plan to ski just a few days, buy a 3-day-pack, 4-day-pack, or even up to 14-pack for cost savings off the daily rate.

Vail Resorts offers tiered pricing that varies according to dates and conditions. On an early- or late-season day when not all lifts and/or runs are open, prices can be 30% or more lower than during the holidays or regular season; however, these must be purchased online in advance to get such big savings.

Buddy Passes/Ski With a Friend

If you’ve got a buddy who has a season pass, see if he/she can set you up with a buddy pass or ski with a friend ticket. These are both discounted daily lift tickets. The discount varies according to time of season. Call the lift ticket office directly for pricing and know that your buddy has to be with you to purchase a buddy or friend pass.

Ski With A Friend Tickets
Ski With a Friend tickets can be purchased at the ticket window. You'll need to have with you your season pass and the person for whom you are purchasing the ticket. Let the ticket agent at the window know you'd like to purchase a Ski With a Friend ticket and provide them your pass.


Alternative, Less Costly Tickets: Half-day and late-day tickets are for sale at significantly lower prices

Half-day lift tickets are available for same day purchase only. Prices and start times vary per resort. Please visit any of the resort lift ticket offices for the most current information. Half-day lift tickets cannot be used in the morning.

Half-day and late-day tickets are for sale at significantly lower prices, again in tiers depending on the time of season. For example, at Breckenridge a half-day ticket goes on sale at 12:00 pm for $129 versus $137 during the holiday. This is a $32 savings off of a full-day ticket.  A late-day pass goes on sale at 2:00 pm for $81. These prices drop even further late season in April.

With half-day or late-day tickets, you won’t be getting first tracks, but often you will find that you’ll miss the lunch crowd at noon, or have the slopes to yourself near closing time when those who started early have tired out and called it quits for the day. If you go half day or late when the snow is falling all day, you’ll still find fresh tracks and soft snow.  Half-day and late-day tickets are only available for purchase at the ticket window on day of use. You can call the ticket office for the Vail Resort of your choice directly for daily pricing information.

TIP: Mornings can be a busy time at the windows, so if you arrive the day prior, try to pick up your ticket(s) in the afternoon.  The ticket windows are typically open until 4pm, but vary by location, so check before you go.

The Breckenridge lift ticket office number is (970) 496-5455 or (970) 754-0012.

For more information on daily ticket prices call Vail Resorts at (970) 754-0011, 8am to 8pm MT, Mon – Fri or 8am to 6pm MT, Sat – Sun

Kids Ski Free: The 2018-2019 Kids Colorado Pack offer will expire Oct 7, 2018.  If you missed out, make a note to get in on the deal next year.  Kids K-5 can ski FREE with the Epic SchoolKids Colorado Pack for 4 days at each of these Vail Resorts:  Breckenridge, Vail, Keystone, and Beaver Creek.  This great program also includes one free first-timer ski or ride lesson with equipment rental.
