When you’re planning a vacation to go skiing at Mammoth, one of the unavoidable expenses is your lift ticket. Lift tickets have gotten fairly expensive in recent years, making this one of the highest costing items, behind initial travel and lodging. Still, there are several ways to save money and score some discount Mammoth Mountain lift tickets, while also making sure that you’re getting the best bang for your buck. Listed below are the prices for Mammoth Mountain for the 2015-16 season.

Let’s face it. Nobody likes to feel like they’re being taken advantage of when it comes to buying anything. When it comes to lift tickets, if you find yourself at the resort window about to pay for lift tickets with no coupons, they are taking advantage. The window prices are the absolute maximum that they have calculated that people will pay for lift tickets. There is no reason to pay these prices when it’s so easy to get discounted Mammoth Mountain lift tickets.

For that matter, you may find yourself at the slope on your first day without a lift ticket and thinking that a half day ticket is a good deal. Imagine you’ve gotten to the slopes a few hours after opening and a couple hours before the 12:30 half day cutoff. You probably think that waiting for a bit to save $25 is a good deal. Still, you’re on vacation, and you came to ski, not hang out in the lodge. Of course, you can avoid both of these scenarios with one simple tip.

Buying in advance also does more than just save you money, it saves you time. If you buy your lift tickets far enough in advance (usually at least a week), the resort will mail them to you.
