Save money on Food when you are skiing

 

Take packs of hot chocolate and apple cider to the mountain with you and either use free hot water or buy it. For instance at Snowbird's Creekside its 25¢ for hot water and a cup. That certainly beats $2.50 to $3 for a hot drink.

Get hot water at the mountain and take your own instant soup.

Fill a hot flask with a burrito before you leave home or fill it with hot homemade soup.

If you must purchase food on the mountain, just buy fries, or share a meal because often the portions are huge and easy to share.

Cheapest thing at Alta is a hardboiled egg at Watson's shelter. Last year they were 75c each. Buy two of those and you have enough to keep you going for a while, especially if you brought an energy bar along with you as well

 

 

To get even more excited about skiing, check out a Warren Miller movie!

Use day cares in the valley as opposed to the resorts

 

Save wear and tear on your car and take the bus when heading up to any of the Cottonwood Canyon resorts.  Plenty of UTA Park n Ride Parking areas near the mouth of the canyons.
