Industry leaders say that even though last-minute lift tickets at some resorts now exceed $100, skiing has never been more affordable if you're savvy about discounts.
The percentage of people who participate in snow sports with household incomes over $100,000 has risen over the past eight seasons from 45 percent of ski area visitors in the 2006-07 season to 56 percent of visitors in the 2013-14 season, according to the report.
Evan Reece, co-founder and CEO of San Francisco-based Liftopia, an online marketplace for lift tickets, says buying early and booking multiple days also goes a long way in lowering the price of getting on the mountain.
 while large resorts like Vail, Breckenridge and Keystone offer varied terrain and more amenities, smaller resorts can provide their own charm, shorter lift lines, less crowded slopes and cheaper lift tickets.
CJ Hartland, sales manager for Monarch Mountain in southwest Colorado, says the resort's owners have kept lift ticket prices down by offering group rates and free skiing to kids age 6 and under and to seniors 69 and over.
At larger resorts, keeping skiing affordable has come down to an intense battle over season pass prices.
 2009, an unrestricted pass to Vail Resorts at Vail Mountain, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge and Keystone cost $1,900.

Federal officials are preparing to push ahead with a massive thinning project in two national forests in northern Arizona.
The U. S. Forest Service recently released a plan for restoration work on nearly 1,000 square miles in the Coconino and Kaibab national forests, marking a major environmental hurdle for the project that has been in development for nearly four years, the Arizona Daily Sun reported (http://goo.gl/VqK9d4 ).
Goals include reducing the severity of wildfires, protecting watersheds, creating forest-related jobs and minimizing hazards from bark beetles.
The plan calls for about 75 percent of the project area to be mechanically thinned and treated with prescribed fire, while the remaining 25 percent would just see the controlled burns.
The project would dramatically reduce tree density from 400-1,000 per acre to 12-125 trees per acre.
Some environmentalists had pushed to prohibit logging of large-diameter trees, but the Forest Service settled on wording that emphasized the retention of larger trees but provided flexibility to decide when and where such trees should be cut, said Ethan Aumack, conservation director for the Grand Canyon Trust.
"Part of the interesting nature of collaborative processes like this is there's a long list of things people want, and in the end, if the collaboration is successful, folks usually get what they need," Aumack said.
