Lift ticket prices at King Soopers, City Market, and Safeway

by G. Kunkel

It seems everyone wants to find out the lift ticket prices for ski resorts in Colorado grocery stores. The challenge - lift ticket prices are not static throughout the ski season.  Just like the price of gasoline - they go up and down.

Colorado ski resorts know when the peak times are for skier, snowboarder, and skibiker visits. As for-profit businesses that rely heavily on lift ticket revenue, they are going to charge premium pricing during busy periods. This includes pricing at Colorado grocery stores.

If you want to know the most current price for lift tickets, you'll need to call a grocery store. Prices can vary from one day to the next.

Available lift tickets can vary too. The grocery stores can run out or they may no longer carry the same tickets as last ski season.

Some ski resorts like Aspen and Steamboat stopped selling discount lift tickets in King Soopers, City Market, and Safeway in the mid-1990's. You'll need to buy them with your lodging or very generously tip your ski instructor to find out alternative methods.
