Discounted lift tickets - Whistler

Hi all:

I'm already dropping a ton of cash on flight/lodging for a trip next week to Whistler and am hoping to save some money on lift tickets if possible.

In Tahoe, we can oftentimes pick up discounted tickets/coupons or vouchers at local ski/board shops or even grocery stores. Is there anything like that in Whistler?

A quick Google search yielded crappy results. Thanks in advance for any help or advice provided.

Someone had mentioned a while back that you could pick up discounted tickets in Squamish on the way to Whistler, at the 7-11 or something. Might've been grafta, but can't swear to it.


Illegitimi non carborundum.

I have been to Whistler twice but the most recent trip was about 7 years ago so it may not be the same now, but we were able to pick
up half price tickets at the 7-11 or similar type convenience store in Squamish as mentioned. Worth a shot....

Look at Whis website and get an edge card for however many days you need. It goes 1day, 3day, 5day. More days = cheaper per day.

Alternately get discounted tickets at 7-11 vancouver or squamish

Do not buy tickets on the hill.

I'm fairly sure the edge card is cheapest way to go

Grafta: Thanks for your help. It looks like Edge tix are only available for CA or Washington state residents; however, I called the ticketing folks who confirmed that discounted lift tickets can be purchased at the 7-11's. Thanks again.

Oh snap! Yeah sorry forgot bout that. 7-11 it is

Hey my other thought is try to get an accommodation/ticket deal package if you haven't already booked.

Have fun on the hill!

Accommodations are all set. I'm really excited about this weekend. A buddy and I are splurging and doing a heli day through Powder Mtn on Friday. I've never done that before and am freaking out with excitement.
