Company description

The Liftopia platform helps ski resorts generate incremental sales through yield management, segmentation, and centralized distribution. The core mission of Liftopia is twofold: help skiers and snowboarders get out on the slopes more often, and help alpine resorts generate incremental revenue. The Liftopia platform gives alpine resorts the ability to sell advance-purchase, date-specific tickets, rentals, lessons and more, while still maintaining complete control over both the price and the quantity of items available for any given day. By selling date-specific products online and in advance, resorts can safely lock in business without hurting on-mountain sales. For skiers and snowboarders, it means that if you're willing to jump through some hoops and purchase a non-refundable, date-specific ticket, you can score deals that are as much as 90% off on-mountain rates!

Liftopia currently sells lift tickets, rentals, lessons and more at over 150 alpine resorts across North America. Our list of active resort partners and products is continually growing and changing. If you don't see deals for a resort that you are looking for, sign up for regional deal alerts and we'll be sure to keep you up to speed with what is on the site. We are constantly trying to improve our platform to be more useful for skiers, snowboarders and our resort partners alike.
