In this Nov. 16, 2014 photo provided by Keystone Resort in Keystone, Colo., skiers take a lift on a snowy mountain. A recent report commissioned by the National Ski Areas Association shows that the percentage of people with household incomes over $100,000 who participate in snow sports has risen over the past eight seasons from 45 percent of ski area visitors to 56 percent of visitors. But there are ways to make a ski trip affordable, including skiing at smaller resorts, buying multi-day, half-day and advance tickets, and taking advantage of discounts for kids, seniors and groups. (AP Photo/Keystone Resort, Cody Mendoza)DENVER (AP) — In 2010, the price of walk-up, single-day lift ticket at Vail and Beaver Creek ski resorts topped $100.
