***How We Produced This Guide***
Total Cost = Equipment Rental + Lift Pass + Lunch + Accommodation
The 50 ski resorts in our ranking provided information on the price of ski rental and daily lift passes for the upcoming 2019-20 season. The ski rental price includes intermediate skis, boots, and poles for one person for one day. The lift pass price is for a full day’s skiing for one adult on 02.22.2020. These prices were researched in fall 2019 and may include discounts that are offered to customers who buy in advance.
The lunch price includes a regular cheeseburger and fries at a restaurant on the ski slopes in the Yelp $$ category. Yelp’s online menus were used to obtain these prices. The accommodation price is based on HomeToGo’s own metasearch data: It is the average price per person, per night to stay in a 4-person vacation rental found on HomeToGo close to the resort, between 11.16.2019 and 04.11.2020.
All prices are in USD. Please note that this is a forecast and that prices may fluctuate between now and the start of the ski reason. When prices for 2019-20 were not available from the resorts, we based our price forecasts on last season’s prices. Prices do not include sales tax.
