I am nervous about booking with an online company. How do I know you are legit?
Our track record speaks for itself. We have helped thousands of travelers and have been able to maintain an "A" rating with the Better Business Bureau. We are also backed and accredited by ARC (ARC-accredited agencies are the most select group of dedicated professionals in the U.S. travel industry only receiving accreditation after meeting stringent financial, operational, and security requirements). But do not take our word for it, please ask around. Talk with any of our travel suppliers (resorts, condo management companies etc.) to learn for yourself why Ski Trip Advisors is rapidly becoming a well-known name in the ski vacation planning and ski resort communities.
What does (2 of 3 days, 3 of 4 days, 4 of 5 days, ....and so on ) mean regarding lift ticket pricing?
The first number is the number of days you have to ski,. For example: 3 of 5 days you can ski 3 days out of a 5 day period starting when your ticket is scanned in the lift line for the first time, so if you start on Monday you can ski any three days between Monday and five days later (Friday).
