108 Ski Resorts In North America Recognize Seniors With Free Lift Tickets.

 

 

 

 

 

 

SeniorsSkiing.com’s co-publisher Jon Weisberg has another article on Huffington Post, this time describing where seniors can ski for free or for very little money.  [NOTE: You can only download this list from SeniorsSkiing.com.

We are told by ski industry veterans that free skiing for seniors used to be much more widespread. However, a decade or so ago, some resort owners decided that they would rather cash in on seniors rather than gift them a ski lift ride in recognition for years of loyalty to the sport; big discounts and free skiing were gone.

From this list of 108 North American ski resorts, it appears that some more enlightened resorts might be swinging the pendulum back to free skiing.  Sure, some of these resorts are small- or medium-sized, but they are attracting seniors, filling lifts, especially mid-week, and perhaps hosting their families.  The impact of having a loyal group of seniors gathering at the lodge, skiing together, having lunch, staying occasionally for dinner is a huge positive for a ski resort.

Part of our mission at SeniorsSkiing.com is to show the industry the value we bring to their businesses beyond passes and tickets.

    So this article points at the Huffington Post article, and the Huffington Post points at Seniors Skiing, and neither of them actually provide a list of the 108 ski areas. Why not simply provide a link to the page containing the list?

    Not sure HOW you fixed this. I still can’t reach the article. Click on the title and I come back here. What’s the correct procedure?

  4. Looking forward to your research results.
