      Winter is here! Calling all ski, snowboard and snow reporters!   12/01/2017

      Are you passionate about skiing, snowboarding or snowshoeing?  Can't let your time on the slopes go undocumented?  Do you want to have a place to share your stories? If your answer is yes, then we want to hear from you. ______________________________________ SlopeEdge is looking for ski, snowboard and snowshoe enthusiasts to serve as volunteer contributors while sharing their time on the slopes with us this winter in the form of writing, photo and video. We are interested in bringing on board new team members, to help create more content, and to expand our footprint and regions that we cover. As it is a volunteer opportunity, you are free to contribute and post at your own frequency. If you are already documenting your experiences on the slopes through writing, photo and video, you are already doing what we are looking for. We want to provide you a home to showcase the winter content you may already be creating. What We Do The main goal of SlopeEdge is to create positive promotion and support of the sport of skiing and snowboarding, as well as the many unique ski mountains available to enjoy and discover in the British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario and Quebec regions. We accomplish this through regular ski reports, news and updates, how to guides, ski mountain profiles... just to name a few. We are a fun community of passionate mountain enthusiasts, eager to share our experiences, stories and adventures in the slopes with others. Why Join Being part of our team allows you to contribute and collaborate with a fun and creative community that makes positive promotion of the ski industry in our regions. You will be helping others discover new mountains to enjoy and bring awareness of less known ski mountains to the larger public. In addition to enhancing your on-camera and storytelling skills, joining our team will also allow you to build and showcase your portfolio, reach and personal brand. How to Apply Please send us an email at and tell us a bit about yourself and why you would like to join us. We look forward to working together and helping promote the great mountain sports we all practice in the winter season.

Vermont Lift Ticket Prices for 2017/18

Recommended Posts

Just posted today on New England Ski Industry’s Facebook page and website, the average cost for a lift ticket in Vermont has increased by 8% for the 2017/18 ski season. There are now 6 areas that meet or exceeded the $100 a day lift ticket price! That’s $100 USD! 

Stowe Mountain Resort tops the list at $131 USD/day (add the current exchange rate to that), and the least expensive is Queeche Club bottoming out at $45 USD. THE OTHER $100+ areas in Vermont this year are: Sugarbush, Stratton, Killington, Okemo, Mount Snow to top off the high end. Rounding out the bottom is Magic Mountain, Burke, Middlebury College Snowbowl, and  Queeche.

The biggest spike in price this year belongs to Sugarbush at a jump of $27 USD including the RFID fee.

The link below is to the graph representing lift ticket rates from 2013/14 to 2017/18. 

So fellow slopeedgers, if we want to play in Vermont this year, we have to pay!

Same here. Hard to take people seriously in Quebec when they complain over the ski area charging $30-45 dollars for a day. Go to Vermont and you'll quickly have a reality check. Let's hope the whole industry doesn't head in that direction. I can understand operational costs are increasing but $131 USD for a day at Stowe, that's difficult to swallow.

There will always be a market for the smaller local ski areas, as their pricing and offer can still make skiing affordable and accessible for all. It's good to have options.

This is the prime example of why I support the smaller hills like Cochran's, Lyndonville Outing Club, Northeast Slopes in VT to name a few. I haven't found or seen the average in New Hampshire yet but I do know that Bretton Woods is pushing high $80's low $90's USD for full day. Liftopia may be my best friend this year to save a little scrilla for my US skiing.
