Above: Not Nebraska
Cornhusker Ski Club, Lincoln
Social events, discount tickets, bus trips…the usual. Hey, it’s Nebraska, and it’s skiing. At least people who enjoy skiing, and they’re doing things. Nice things we hope, that involve skiing.
Nebraski, Gretna • 20 skiable acres on 200′ vertical — CLOSED

Omaha Ski Club, Omaha
Skiers, snowboarders, outdoor enthusiasts; bus trips, etc. Good group of folks.
Prairie Hills Golf and Ski Club, Pleasanton • 15 skiable acres on 120′ vertical — unconfirmed

The SKInny: This is a golf course that is said to offer winter skiing operations, attempting to verify. From all appearances, it is a place to ski.
Lift Tickets at Discount: This is a “clearinghouse” of sorts that many ski areas use to raise cash by selling discount tickets in advance, called Liftopia. If you haven’t used this service, it is important to knowfor certain that you are going on a specific date. The deeply discounted tickets must be purchased in advance; generally up to two days out. The sticking point is that some ski resorts only make a limited number of tickets available to Liftopia for any given day, so they might be sold out if you wait too long…so, as soon as you are absolutely, positively sure that you will be skiing on a certain day, click this link to get deeply discounted tickets. I’ve used this service many times, but again, ONLY when I am absolutely certain I will be skiing on a specific date. You need to have access to a printer to print out your receipt, and you have to take identification with you to the mountain. I’ve knocked a third off the price of some tickets. Not every area participates, but it’s well worth checking if you’ve got a date nailed down.
