Ski Salt Lake (Not So) Super Pass

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

 

Prices for the 2011-12 Ski Salt Lake Super Pass have been posted.

 

http://www.visitsaltlake.com/ski/superpass/pricing/

 

The cost has gone up from last year. Worse, the early booking "4th day free" promotion is no longer being offered.

 

We were able to take advantage of that last year to get 4-day passes for $180 each. They will now be $272.

 

That's > a 50% increase for those that previously booked early.

 

This used to be one of the best deals going, and was a definite factor in making SLC the best bang for the buck when it came to ski vacations.

 

I had planned on bringing my daughter out for 11 days (skiing 8 days in LCC/BCC) during her January college break. The $360 difference in what it would cost us in passes compared to last year have put those plans in doubt.

I just booked through southwest vacations and got 3 days for the price of 2 on the Superpass. As well southwest has a deal where if you book a flight hotel combo and enter the promo code SKISLC100 they knock an extra $100 off.

If you can't get the Superpass, the ski shop prices for lift tix are far better than the price of lift tickets at any other major resort in NA worth skiing.

I forgot to mention that the $100 off SKISLC100 promo code expires tomorrow at 6pm.

If you miss the superpass deal, wait for the UAC fundraiser tickets...

Last Jan. I went to the Costco in Sandy, Utah and bought a 2 day lift ticket for Snowbird for $105 but it did not include rides on the tram. Lift ticket prices in BCC and LCC may have gone up in price this season.

The superpass should be called the crummypass now. They have JACKED the prices on it to the point that it is not a good deal.

Makes the Vail resort passes look like a better deal starting with virtually unlimited at 3 resorts (A-Basin, Keystone and Breck) for $409 and 7 resorts for $499 looking better and better.  For those thinking of switching over, hurry because prices may go up Oct 16 and are sure to go up or disappear sometime around mid-November. 

 

In full disclosure, I don't work for VR, but do have a great place in Frisco that I am renting out this year which can cheaper on a per person basis than a SLC motel.

Even worse for 2013-2013.

 

It's now up to $73/day. No word on the  free extra day for early booking that was discontinued last year.

 

2 seasons ago, the price was $60/day with a free day if purchased prior to December 10. So, I paid $180 for a 4 day Super Pass.

 

Last year later, that same " 4 day "Super" Pass would have cost $272.

 

This season, it is $292.

 

 A 62% increase in just 2 years.

 

Unless they bring back the free day promotion, this now seems rather pointless.

Last year, Southwest Vacations gave one day free, plus knocked off $100 per vacation package if you booked the pass, hotel and flight through them.  It was a steal.  We got 3 days for the price of 2 (then bought the 4th day at the ski shop).

 

If they do that again its still a bargain.

We got a 3 day one last year when we visited. It was worth it for the reasons we needed it. 1) Free travel on the buses (that is how we got around). 2). Weren't too sure where we were going to go when we arrived

 

Still - if it keeps going up like that, it may be worth just getting the ski passes separately. It'll probably be close. But if you're not using the buses anyway, hard to justify.

Salt Lake needs to get a combo pass that's good at all the resorts via mass transit. If they really wanted it, they could have it up and running this season?

 

But I don't think that some of the resorts really want it at all and the whole interconnect is pie in the sky boondogle!
