About Liftopia is the largest retailer of ski lift tickets on the web. The Liftopia platform helps ski resorts generate incremental sales through yield management, segmentation, and centralized distribution. The core mission of Liftopia is twofold: help skiers and snowboarders get out on the slopes more often, and help alpine resorts generate incremental revenue. The Liftopia platform gives alpine resorts the ability to sell advance-purchase, date-specific tickets, rentals, lessons and more, while still maintaining complete control over both the price and the quantity of items available for any given day. By selling date-specific products online and in advance, resorts can safely lock in business without hurting on-mountain sales. For skiers and snowboarders, it means that if you're willing to jump through some hoops and purchase a non-refundable, date-specific ticket, you can score deals that are as much as 90% off on-mountain rates!  Liftopia currently sells lift tickets, rentals, lessons and more at over 150 alpine resorts across North America.
Liftopia is located in downtown San Francisco close to BART, Muni and CalTrain.
