How to Find Discounts and Deals on Mammoth Mountain Lift Tickets
Making perfect turns through Mammoth Mountain snow is what we all dream about, but actually making those turns happen can strain any wallet.
ASO Mammoth wants everyone to see exactly why we love skiing and snowboarding at Mammoth Lakes, and we don’t want the costs of lift tickets to stop you from doing that. That’s why we’ve listed the best way to save money on lift tickets to Mammoth Mountain, or any mountain, below! Check it out below, and then visit ASO Mammoth to keep the savings rolling by renting the best ski and snowboard rentals in Mammoth Lakes!
Buy Lift Tickets Online and Early
Ski resorts like Mammoth Mountain benefit from having people buy their lift tickets online and well ahead of time, so they incentivize people to do so by offering discounts on packages bought online.
Although you’ll likely still need to visit the ticket window to redeem your lift ticket once you arrive at the mountain, the money and time you’ll save are still well worth it. See what we mean for yourself by visiting the Mammoth Mountain lift ticket reservation page here!
If you or anyone in your family are beginners, then also consider buying a Mammoth Mountain Beginner Pass. The beginner pass gives guests access only to the lower parts of the mountain where they can learn and progress and it’s also cheaper than a full access lift ticket.

Buy From a Third-Party Site
Mammoth Mountain may be the main source for lift tickets, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find discounted lift tickets elsewhere.
There are many different websites and vendors for lift tickets, but there are three main ones which we trust to have the best deals and packages available.
The first is Liftopia, which has discounted lift tickets available for most mountains, not just Mammoth. Liftopia’s website is easy to navigate, has an extremely useful blackout calendar that shows you when you can ride at any mountain on discounted lift tickets, and is a reliable source for deals.
The second vendor we like is REI. If you’re into outdoor sports, then you probably already know REI as a provider for just about any gear you need, but you may not know that they also offer discounts on lift tickets to mountains all over the country. Although REI’s selection isn’t as wide as Liftopia, you should always check their site before buying your lift tickets!
Lastly, Costco stores near ski mountains also carry lift ticket packages during winter. Just like everything else at Costco, lift tickets come in bundles there so it may not be the best choice if you only need a single lift ticket. However, the discounts you’ll find there are always worth checking out!
Buy A Season Pass or Collective Pass
If you know that you’re going to ski or snowboard at a certain mountain several times within a season, then the best way to save money is by buying a season pass from the mountain or a collective pass that covers it.
A collective pass is a pass that gives owners access to multiple mountains, typically spread out over the entire country. For example, Mammoth Mountain is covered under the Ikon Pass which also gives owners access to other mountains all over the world.
Ski Small Then Go Big
Lastly, you can save money on lift tickets by riding at smaller mountains before heading to the larger ones like Mammoth! June Mountain is just next door to Mammoth Lakes, but since it is smaller than Mammoth its lift tickets cost less.
