These days, buying a lift ticket is like handing out cards and deciphering how best to play them. This season in the Vermont ski areas you will meet special ticketing cards called Magic, X2, Points, Passport, Fanfare, Club and Express to name a few. Purchase one of these cards and get discounts for ticket tickets for lifts and possibly other goods and services. It is noteworthy that the Ski Vermont trade association sponsors free, training, ski training or package packages in the participating ski areas across the country from 4 to 10 January. Check skivermont.com in December for details. Here's a snapshot of the best lifts currently available at the Vermont ski resorts:
