Lift Ticket Information

Breckenridge Ski Resort opening day is November 10th for the 2017/2018 Winter Season. Any guest planning on visiting or skiing Breckenridge more than 4 days, we highly encourage purchasing the Epic 4-day or Epic 7-day pass. The cost of the pass may be less than a multi-day lift ticket if being used more than 4 to 5 times, and gives you unlimited access to Breckenridge, Keystone, and Arapahoe Basin Ski Areas (all located close to Breckenridge). These passes are available for a limited time only, so we recommend purchasing the passes for the 2017/2018 ski season soon. Learn more at

In addition, purchasing individual Breckenridge ski lift tickets in advance online can be cheaper than purchasing lift tickets at the window. Visit our Great Western Lodging Breckenridge Ski Lift Tickets site to book your lift tickets in advance.
