Ski Town Deals for Retirees: Lift Tickets

Skiing is an expensive sport. But there are also many discounts to be found, especially for retirees


Many ski resorts discount lift tickets for senior citizens. The price reductions tend to get better as you age. A one-day lift pass at Whiteface Mountain near Lake Placid, N.Y., is $60 for a senior age 65 to 69 on a nonholiday, $14 off the full adult price. But once seniors hit age 70, lift tickets are free.

Here are five more key areas where you should always try to get a discount.
