Below are the prices for lift tickets at Donner Ski Ranch for the 2015-2016 ski season. Keep in mind that these are the window prices at the resort, so they are the highest prices out there. However, there are several key ways to make sure you can save money on your lift tickets.

When it comes to your skiing getaway, lift tickets are usually the second most expensive item, behind lodging. One key way to save money is to prepurchase your lift tickets. But because you have to prepurchase them, paying for a week’s worth of lift tickets often feels like a bigger drain on your wallet than anything else. However, buying in advance is the best way to save money and get discount Donner Ski Ranch lift tickets. To save even more money on your lift tickets, book through us. Our site is constantly updated to reflect the latest savings and deals at Donner. Let us help you get the best deals for discount Donner Ski Ranch lift tickets.

Another way of saving money on your lift tickets is to take advantage of ski and stay packages. These packages are usually available at local hotels. They bundle lift tickets together with  lodging and give you an overall discount on both. In some cases, this discount is on par with those you can find from prepurchasing.  If your hotel doesn’t have a ski and stay package, ask the front desk if they know of any coupons. Often, resorts will give coupons out to local businesses to encourage locals to frequent the resort. There’s no reason you can’t take advantage of those savings to get discount Donner Ski Ranch lift tickets.

There are two situations that you never want to find yourself in when it comes to lift tickets. The first is finding yourself at the resort window without any coupons or discounts. That means you’re going to pay the maximum price the resort can charge you. When you get to the ski area, they know you want to ski, so they’re going to make you pay. There’s no reason to pay full price when discount Donner Ski Ranch lift tickets are so easy to get with just a little bit of planning.

The second is thinking that half-day tickets are a good deal. Half day tickets make it seem like you’re going to save money, which in a way you are. However, you’re also wasting valuable time that you could spend on the slopes. You save $15 but you lose out on half the day skiing. So what if you show up to the ski area at 11. You came to Donner to ski, so ski. Pretty much the only time that a half day ticket at Donner makes sense is if you arrive close to or after 12:30.
