From Deer Valley to Diamond Peak, HomeToGo has done a deep dive into 35 of the best North American ski destinations to help you find where you can get the best bang for your buck this season.


Total Cost = Equipment Rental + Lift Pass + Lunch + Accommodation

The official websites of each destination provided data on the price of ski equipment rental and lift passes for the upcoming 2017-18 winter season. The equipment rental price includes mid-level skis, boots, poles and a helmet for one day. The lift pass price is for one full day.

The lunch price includes a hamburger with fries and a soda at a mid-range restaurant on the ski slopes. The data was provided by online menus. The accommodation price is the average price per person to stay in a 4 person vacation rental found on HomeToGo in the resort, between the dates of December 16, 2017 and April 15, 2018. Our own metasearch data provided this information.

Please note that this is a forecast and that prices may change between now and the upcoming season. When prices for 2017-18 were not available from the resorts, we based our price forecasts on last season’s prices. Prices are excluding sales tax.
