Most Acres Per Buck

Hello,
At GetSkitickets.com, we put our in-house mathematicians to work and came up with the First Annual “Most Acres Per Buck” ski resort line-up, which showcases how many acres-per-dollar our resort partners offer. The math is pretty simple, we took our 1 day adult lift ticket cost per resort and ran the number against how many skiable acres they have. The numbers are in and we’re excited to highlight our most bang for the buck ski resorts across North America.
