When Do Travelers Start Planning Their Ski Vacations?

With temperatures still well over the 80s –and 100s in some states – it might feel a little bizarre to start talking about ski season but according to TurnKey data, guests will start booking their winter ski trips pretty soon.

During the peak (December-February) of ski season last year, the average amount of time from booking a TurnKey ski home to arrival was about 51 days. Some travelers waited to book until a week before their trip but others booked almost 3 months out to make sure they got the home they wanted.

Whether you’re a guest deciding when to make that deposit on a vacation rental or you’re a homeowner deciding when to list your rental and expect bookings, here’s the average time ahead of travel guests are booking their ski vacations:

How far in advance are travelers booking ski homes?
Vail 57.6 days
Aspen 87.8 days
Summit County 51.4 days
Winter Park 26.3 days
Jackson Hole 64.5 days
Park City 79 days
Big Bear 32.2 days
Steamboat Springs 61.6 days
North Lake Tahoe 46.4 days
South Lake Tahoe 43.1 days
Mammoth 10.1 days
