While searching for the best deals, you will quickly discover that there are all kinds of Whistler lift pass discounts, depending on where you live and what dates you want to ski.
Back in the Dual Mountain days of Whistler Blackcomb, I used to work in the Sales Department. Lots of changes have occurred since Intrawest bought out Whistler Mountain, but several of the lift ticket discount programs continue a decade later.
Whistler Blackcomb Website :: Order online, straight from the source. Often not the biggest discount, but fast, easy and safe.
7-11 :: Some Vancouver 7-11 stores offer lift pass deals. Squamish 7-11, which you drive right past on the way up to Whistler, sometimes sells tickets for less. Lift tickets are not always in stock, so better to plan ahead. Note that 7-11 Whistler tickets are not available at the Whistler 7-11 store.
Corporate Tickets :: Select clubs, universities, and corporations pre-purchase large quantities of discount lift tickets for their members. Sometimes members’ plans change and they sell off extra tickets. Prices rely on supply and demand. Logistics of the purchase can be tricky and a bit risky.
Hotel Packages with Lift Passes :: Gaining in popularity are the hotel stay and save on lift tickets offers. Some hotels offer free passes, like stay for 2 nights and get 3rd day skiing free. Lots of Whistler hotels offer accommodation and lift pass packages. Search around for Whistler package deals and you might just get yourself a cheap package price.
Vacation Rental by Owner (VRBO) with Lift Passes :: Websites like www.ResortAc.com offer discount Whistler lift tickets for guests who stay in their Whistler VRBO condos, townhomes, and chalets. Competitive pricing with secure online ordering, plus in-resort personal service.
Kijiji and Craigslist :: Sometimes legitimate, sometimes not… obviously you need to use caution on any Craigslist deals.
Beware deals that sound too good to be true or suspicious in any way.
Edge Card :: Local’s discount lift tickets and other perks for BC and Washington State residents. Proof of residency required in order to get these special discounted lift tickets. One really nice feature is ability to connect your credit card to the Edge card so you can walk right by the ticket windows at the mountain and go straight up the lifts.
Every year Whistler Blackcomb has new lift ticket deals and promotions, so make sure you spend a bit of time searching for the best deal for your ski group. If you have questions or some useful info, please comment below.
