Who's bought their ski pass already?

post #1 of 160
Thread Starter 

Have you bought your ski pass yet? What kind of early season deal did you get? When will the early season deals be over at your resort?

 

Today I acquired the $375 midweek pass at Bridger Bowl, a savings of $100 off the regular price that goes until October 9. 

 

This year's season pass also has some neat perks:

 

Quote:
New This Season:  Ski 1/2 price at Utah's Alta Ski Area with a 2012-13 Bridger Bowl Season Pass!  If one of those proverbial "storm warnings" goes south,  good chance it will hit the Wasatch ... and so can you at half-price!  You can also ski other Montana ski areas at the half- day rate with a 2012-13 Bridger Bowl Season Pass!

Our 2012-13 Bridger Bowl Local's Guide is online and in print available at your local ski and snowboard shop.  Get up-to-date information on all of our Bridger Bowl services including snowsports lessons, ticket prices, events and more.

Got the Rocky Mtn Super Pass+. Winter Park, Copper and Steamboat. I got it for $420 and I think the rates go up at the end of September. They set us up with 1 free guest ticket at each mountain in the early season as well.

 

Still considering a 5x Crested Butte Card or a 4x Loveland Card…

Got the Epic Ski pass in April.  Not sure if there was any saving for the pass I bought, but I believe that it will only be sold until certain time (sometime in December?)

Renewed my season's pass to Stevens Pass in April, $429.  this is the first year they were offering early renewal at the end of the season, previous owners didn't offer it until September in past years. 

 

No special perks that are useful to me, but then no blackout dates, and night skiing until 10pm is available 5 days a week, so a pretty good value all in all, especially since the season starts in mid-to-late November and continues until the at least the end of April.  In 1-12 They had a 3 week extended spring with a separate pass, or with early renewal for 12-13, buit didn't get a lot of skiers. Then for the last weekend they opened it again to 11-12 pass holders, with an apology and a promise that the 12-13 pass will be good as long as they are open.

I took advantage of the Snowbasin value pass @ $469.  There are some blackout dates, but those are the days I normally stay away anyway (Xmas, MLK, Pres Day).  I don't feel that I will be giving up any days from last years' pass, but will be saving over $500.  Not a bad deal.

We got our Revelstoke passes for $739. Prices jump to $1049 October 1st. Not bad considering our neighbors all have early bird sale prices on right now that are about $1000 (ferni, kicking horse) and Whistler' early bird is $1500 (ouch!)

I renewed my Snowbasin pass also but went with the full benefits pass ($650ish) since the boys and I like to go to Sun Valley for a long weekend and we may try to ski on some of the blackout days.  Last year it was good for 6 days at Sun Valley, this year 3.  It also includes summer gondola access, 2 buddy passes at 50% off, discounts on repairs and probably some other things I am forgetting.  Saved about $300 over last years pass.  My kids passes ended up about the same.

 

I am also thinking about getting the Moutain Collective Pass (Alta, Jackson, Aspen, Squaw) but that is probably going to be too much of a time commitment.

Man, I wish there was some kind of Montana Pass, as I will probably be spending my time pretty equally at a few different mountains. Wife has a pass for Red Lodge already, but we will probably be spending more time at Showdown, Bridger Bowl, Big Sky and Moonlight Basin this season.

 

Anybody know of the best way to score good prices on BS/MB tix? Is the Gallatin Valley Food Bank going to do the Turkey for a Ticket event this year? I sure hope so! Great cause, great incentive!

I got the Epic local pass. Breckenridge, Keystone, A-basin ( all unlimited)  and 10 days split between Vail and Beaver creek. $529.

I got mine in June.  IIRC, I think the early deal ended on 6/30.  They're $479 now until 10/31 at which point they go up to the regular price of $799.

Got my Sugar Bowl weekday pass for $329 back in May. I got it early because Sugar Bowl has a loyalty program and I got 25K points for buying it early. It is then pretty easy to get another 25K points during the season, which gives me $50 off my next season pass.

I think she gets some tickets to Whitefish with her pass.  I know we are supposed to get 5 days free at Red Lodge.

Damn, that's a good deal.  The Tahoe version is $650ish if you want unlimited access.  I should just move out to Colorado and start saving $100+/year on ski passes alone.

Getting my Whitefish Mtn pass on 6 payment plan. $580 total.
post #24 of 160

I got the Epic Pass and will primarily use it in Tahoe as I don't think I will be going to Colorado this year. FWIW - I will not be going to Verbier either cool.gif

post #25 of 160

Bogus Basin, ID

1900 vert, 2400 acres, 800+ acres lighted for night skiing

$179 adult season pass, no limits, no blackouts, includes 2 buddy passes when purchased before end of preceding season.

Can't beat the price! The skiing ain't bad and despite 16 miles of crazy road to get there, I can leave work and be on the slopes by 6pm. The best of many good reasons to live in Boise.

I got the no blackout version in hopes of making it to Vail for Christmas.  All I need now is some early snow.  Aside from that I'll be spending most days at NS.

Bought my Crystal mtn pass in April for $600. Got in 9 days on it until July 1 close; hoping no El Nino skunk for Pnw this fall!
post #28 of 160

Will go for Mt Hood Meadows @ $525 this season x2 adults, $264 x1 youth an $25 x1 6yo...

 

Will see what future brings @ Bachelor but might only get few days so probably 2x (3 out of 5) with kids ski free package (if available this season).  

post #29 of 160

Bought his and hers gold passes for Squaw back in April.  Saved $50 each based on current pricing, but I think there's another price bump ahead.

 

For the kids' team program, saved $300 each buying in June.

 

It seems less painful to spread the cost across the calendar.

post #30 of 160

Bought ours in April, I think they were about $750 each for Big Sky - no Moonlight. Looks expensive compared to some of the Colorado deals but it's still cheaper than buying 50+ day passes.
