Most ski resorts have prices for children, adults, seniors and super seniors but there is anarchy in those definitions. In some sites the adult price start at 20 in others at 12. Senior definition varies from 55 to 80. The choice gets more complicated with some resorts charging different on weekends and week days.
The website www.seniorski.com, has all 370 USA ski sites organized in tables ordered by age instead of arbitrary definitions.
With just a click prices are sorted according to the age chosen. If 370 are too many to choose from, the selection can be done in short tables for each state.
Free Skiing for Seniors: On weekends a senior 65 years old can ski free in 4 resorts, at the age of 70 free passes are available in 51 resorts, 75 year old fellows will get the passes in 69 resorts and those 80 or better will ski free in 77 resorts. On weekdays the choice is even larger.
Many resorts that do not give free skiing still offer substantial senior discounts. All that information is available on the site.
Each resort covered has its own page with extended information, additional ticket and season pass prices, weather reports, accurate maps and up-to-date snow and grooming conditions.
The website concept was envisaged during by a group of senior skiers trying to find a good deal at a stage in life where there is plenty of time available, but income is not as it used to be.
The United States is the first country in the site that plans to cover the world (about 2000 ski resorts)
