The older you are, the less it costs to ski. Many ski areas offer a break on lift tickets and season passes to skiers starting at age 60 or 65, and many stop charging altogether at 70. Some let you ski (or snowboard, snowshoe or cross-country) with your peers at a discount.
If you’re 50-plus, Over the Hill Gang International offers cut rates at nearly 100 ski areas, both here and abroad. There’s also the 70+ Ski Club—with 4,500 active members, 125 of them over 90—who get special privileges worldwide.
Joan Rattner Heilman writes often on good deals and where to find them.
