Lift Rate Roundup 2018: Tri-State / Mid-Atlantic

Oh man! A very late roundup of lift ticket and late season pass pricing is finally on the blog for the 2018-2019 season. Resorts in western PA and more have opened up this weekend, if they haven’t been open already! Check out the alpine skiing and snowboarding areas just a drive from anywhere in Western Pennsylvania and listed in PA, WV, MD and NY. The perfect places for a day or weekend trip–just be sure to check the web first for who’s officially open, because, well, that’s going to be changing on the daily. It’s only November!

Rate Chart

Notes about this chart depicting lift ticket rates for the 2018-2019 season: the season pass rates depicted here are non-sale, late purchase pricing. Many of these resorts have spring or fall pre-season pass sales where the majority of them are sold (and when you should buy if you’re seriously considering owning a pass). Unfortunately I missed gathering info on that pricing, so you see the rack rate. All season pass rates are depicted as a single person, full access/classic season pass as purchased today. A few of these resorts are listed under Highland or Peak Pass, which means the resorts are part of a group and the passes have multi-mountain benefits. All lift tickets are set as a single, extended or 8-hour rate, whichever is the “most offered” at each resort.

Lift Rate Roundup & Opening Dates

Original post 12/3/15 – In honor of the snowfall that actually laid for a few hours, I have finally finished my master Lift Rate list! I remember last year scouring websites to make sure I had enough money for gas and a ticket – oh, the ski bum life. So, I decided to map it all out in one document, where you can find lift rates from mountain resorts in western Pennsylvania, Maryland and West Virginia. This is a gold mine if you’re trip-planning and/or inviting friends out and you need a quick cheat sheet.

Update 12/14/15 – It’s 60° outside and slated for 50’s and rain for the rest of December over in my neck of the woods, the Laurel Highlands. This is where 7 Springs and Hidden Valley are located, but I think they can pull off something miraculous in desperate measures. Snowshoe, WV has four runs open with Ballhooter and Skidder lifts running. Peek n’ Peak opens this Saturday, but I am unsure of the percentage of trails with snow.

Western PA and Surrounding Counties Ski Lift Rates
Please note, there may be other, less popular rates that I have not mentioned. I did not list child, senior, or military discounts.

This list can be added to and updated as time goes on. Please feel free to drop a comment if you’d like to see a certain hill listed, if wording is confusing, or to correct a changed lift rate.
