A basic full-day lift pass at one of the major ski resorts will set you back around $100, with discounts available for students and children. A half day pass would be in the region of $75. If you are planning to be on the slopes for more than one day, then take advantage of the multi-day passes available to save yourself some cash.
Season passes are also available and some of these will allow you to get discounted lift passes at other ski resorts. For beginners, there are first-timer packages on offer which include lessons, lift pass and rental equipment.
