With multiple Massachusetts ski areas set to open later this week, 2019-20 lift ticket prices have now been published. The average weekend full day adult lift ticket at a chairlift served area has increased by 4%.
Jiminy Peak remains the most expensive ticket in the state, increasing from $81 to $84. Otis Ridge has retained the title of cheapest ticket in the state, holding at $40 for the fifth straight season.
Ticket prices have been influenced by the steep cost of doing business in Massachusetts, the implementation of RFID (at Berkshire East, Catamount, Jiminy Peak, and Wachusett), and ownership consolidation (Catamount was acquired by the owners of Berkshire East last year, while Blandford and Otis Ridge were acquired by the owner of Butternut within the past three years). Since 2014, the mean ticket price in Massachusetts has increased by an average of 3%.
The mean price for 2019-20 is $60.92, as compared to $58.75 in 2018-19. The median price is $59, a 4% increase over last season's $56.50.
