Ok. So summer isn’t technically over yet, but if you’re like us, you’re already praying to Mother Nature for an early start to the season! In between your ritual pre-season snow dances, you’re dusting off your skis/snowboards, scanning the Internet for gear sales, and mapping out your resort wish-list for the season.

Well, get pumped (if you’re not already)! Because just like us, ski resorts around the world are getting ramped up for next season too. From new lifts to expanding terrain, we can expect an abundance of new improvements for 2014-15.

So while you’re busy gearing up for Winter and while resorts are busy improving the terrain you love, we at Liftopia are busy helping you score sweet lift ticket deals by letting you purchase in advance. Book your lift tickets now for any of the below ski areas and get ready to save big time — but hurry, quantities are limited!
