Did you know that one of the best ways to get cheap lift tickets is to get give-away's at pre-season ski shows, swaps, and movies?

Ski/ snow / snowboard and skate shows are the best bet for free lift ticket vouchers. The vouchers are not really free, as you must pay to go into the show. But, shows are usually around $10-$15, and the shows have a lot of other attractions including resort and manufacturer exhibits, and discount equipment from local retailers. 

At a lot of shows and movies, it's worth it to go just to get the lift tickets. Further, there are a lot of shows where they don't really care if you buy more than one ticket. Or, you might be able to go in a few times, all in an effort to collect a few lift tickets.

But, it's worth it, even if you can just get one, and even though the vouchers are usually limited season tickets, only good in early and/or late season. When you figure that a full priced ticket costs $50 or more, collecting some vouchers in October and November at the ski shows and movies works pretty good. 

Also look for lift ticket giveaways and discounts from Sportings Goods Retailers. Sportings Goods Stores across the country make available discount lift tickets, and they often run promotions that include vouchers for lift tickets.
