Now is the time to book your winter getaway — or start planning at the very least.
HomeToGo, a vacation rental search tool, has compiled a list of the most affordable ski resorts in North America so you can tear up the slopes, even if you’re on a budget.
They gathered data for the 35 top-rated ski resorts in the US and Canada, and then estimated the average total cost of a one day/night stay. The final cost includes:
- Equipment rental: mid-level skis, boots, poles, and a helmet for one day.
- A one-day lift pass.
- Lunch: a burger with fries and a soda at a mid-range restaurant on the slopes.
- Accommodation: the average price per person for a four-person vacation rental found on HomeToGo in the resort, between December 16, 2017 and April 15, 2018.
When prices were unavailable from the resorts, HomeToGo based price forecasts for this winter on last season’s prices.
