Default Europe’s Most Expensive Lift Tickets 2007/8

Most of Europe’s ski areas have now published their 07-08 lift ticket pricing.
For a six day pass, most resorts fall between 150 – 200 Euros. The lowest prices amongst those resorts featured in the main brochures are offered by resorts in Finland, with Yllas for example charging between 117 and 137 Euros depending on the date of visit.

There are also resorts dotted across the Alps with lower than average prices, for example Val Cenis in France is charging 126 Euros for a six day ticket. Some of the biggest resorts are offering big discounts in low season, for example Val Thorens’ six day ticket, normally 169 Euros, drops to 127.50 in the first weeks of the season.

Europe’s three most expensive tickets look set to be:


Les Arcs/La Plagne - 3rd most expensive lift pass
- Third most expensive - Paradiski (La Plagne/Les Arcs
Last year’s number two, the full Paradiski Pass, covering 425km (266 miles) of runs and more than 185 lifts in Les Arcs and La Plagne, at 237 Euros. Various cheaper variants with more restricted use of the lifts available.










- Second most expensive - Zermatt/Cervinia
The 'International Ticket' that gives full access to the lifts of Zermatt in Switzerland and Cervinia in Italy. This has been Europe’s former number one on price in the past but had been dropping down the top ten in recent years. It now appears to be moving back up. Cervinia is pricing the ticket,
Zermatt/Chamonix - 2nd most expensive lift pass
which covers 400km (250 miles) of piste, at 240 Euros through the main season. The ticket can be purchased for 192 Euros in low season. If you buy the pass in Zermatt it costs 390 Swiss Francs so you may get a more favourable exchange rate. The resort also sells a Zermatt only six day ticket for 346 Swiss Francs or you can buy a pass that includes more Aosta Valley resorts (linked by bus) as well as lift-linked Cervinia at 410 Swiss Francs for six days. It’s possible to buy cross-border extensions on the regular passes for Cervinia Only or Zermatt only which may work out cheaper than buying a full pass if you only cross the border once or twice in the week.


Chamonix Valley - probably most expensive lift pass
- Most expensive - Chamonix Valley
Although 2007/8 pricing has not yet been published, the Mont Blanc regional pass looks likely to be most expensive again this winter, if it is offered again this winter, as it cost 250 Euros for a six day ticket for children aged 15 up and adults, and 200 Euros for children aged 5 to 14, for a six day pass in 2006-7. The Mont Blanc Pass is one of the world's largest covering nearly 800km (nearly 500 miles) of trails around Mont Blanc at a dozen resorts including Chamonix, Megeve and Les Contamines, even limited use on the Italian side of the border at Courmayeur. Although the pass covers the use of 230 ski lifts in the area, most of the resorts are not lift linked and without a regular ski bus link, except in the individual sectors, so a car is essential to make full use of the pass (www.pays-du-mont-blanc.com). Lower priced tickets are available at individual resorts and groups of resorts such as those around Chamonix (two options, Chamonix Le pass and Mont Blanc Unlimited) and around Megeve, the former announcing a price freeze on ticket prices from 06-07.

Yeah, it seems like a price range that is way out of my budget! Maybe I could save the cash for it and give it a shot one day

For a six day pass that isn't bad at all. I think that would be a great trip to take for such a small price. I would have thought it would at least been 15 a day.

6 days of skiing for 200 Euro doesnt seem bad at all. Doesnt sound like you get any savings off the daily rates thought.
200 Euro roughly converts to 290 CDN, which would be about 48 dollars a day - which is basically the price of a full day ticket. Not a bad deal, but no real savings here.

Default Baqueira Beret (Spain)

Hello!

Baqueira Beret has only 100 km and a six day pass costs 208 € last season. For 2007/2008 maybe 240 €

I think Baqueira´s ratio price/km is worst tah another ski resort.

You can read it at resort web.

Baqueira Beret 2006-2007 . La estación . Precios forfaits

Excuse me my bad English. I am spanish.

Bye
