Arizona's high country is the perfect getaway for a ski or snowboard trip, but you don't have to spend a fortune to enjoy it!
Arizona Snowbowl is offering by deals on different days of the week, but you save every day if you buy online because they guarantee the lowest price.
Lift tickets start at $35 online and go up from there. You’ll pay at least $59 if you buy your tickets at the Ski Hill. I’ve seen tickets for as much as $87.
There are so many other ways to save, including free lessons, shuttles and discounts on lodging:

It is good at Arizona Snowbowl, Purgatory Resort, Sipapu Ski Resort, Pajarito Mountain, and Hesperus Ski Area, according to Snowbowl's website.
