Focusing on selling Epic Passes and online advance tickets, Stowe's weekend retail ticket window rate is now reaching $139, not including Vermont sales tax.
Vail Resorts does not publish ticket window rates, but has listed window rates for January 5th in the online store, the first non-holiday Saturday of the year. In addition, Vail now adds Vermont's 6% sales tax on top of its advertised ticket price. Bundled with the sales tax, Stowe's window rate is $147.34.
Stowe was the first ski area in New England to cross the $100 threshold in 2014 and has seen annual increases of an average of $10.
Killington and Stratton have the next highest weekend day prices in New England at $129.
