Make sure to book a Peak 1 Express shuttle to Summit County or Vail Valley ahead of time for ease of travel. Our prices are the lowest while our quality is the highest.

One of the easiest ways to save money is to buy in advance. If you pick up ski passes the day of, chances are you’ll spend much more than you need to, so make sure to buy online! One little known tip is that if you plan on hitting the mountain for more than a few days or want to go to multiple locations, buying a season pass can save you Targhee_powmoney. Gear rentals from resort owned shops will be more expensive than locally owned stores. While most smaller shops won’t be located at the base of the mountain, the savings on boots, skis, snowboards, helmets, and more will all be worth it. Don’t forget to pack a lunch to avoid long lines and high prices, and whenever possible, get a group together to get great group discounts on mountain activities and souvenirs.
