How to Score Discounted Lift Tickets to Maine Ski Areas

Page last updated February 28th, 2024

With walk-up lift tickets well over the $100 barrier at the larger ski areas in Maine, many skiers and riders are looking for lift ticket deals and ways to buy discounted lift tickets. With a little planning you don't have to pay the window rate for lift tickets at Maine ski areas. 

If you plan to visit a ski resort more than 6 times you should consider getting a season pass. Alternatively, many ski areas offer buy-ahead lift ticket options (further ahead you buy, the more you save), partial day lift tickets and discount lift ticket days where you can save some significant money. And the smaller ski areas in Maine always offer tremendous value for your outdoor recreation dollar.
