Tahoe Local Pass: Any discount opportunities?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

Hello,

 

I am wondering if someone knows anything about it, honestly, I failed to find any data;

Is there a way to get Tahoe Local Season Pass (currently at $439) cheaper if for example I would find n number of bodies to buy this pass with me?

Or any other way to get some discount on season pass?

 

Thank you,

 

Oleg

Those are the best prices on the pass that you can get at the moment.  They usually post a deal early in the spring for early bird pricing and benefits but $439 is the best you can do at this time of year.   Really, that is a killer deal for the amount of skiing you get. 

 

If you want to avoid some of the black outs and have a better opportunity for skiing more regions then you may consider the Epic Local Pass

$100 more but a lot more skiing available.

I had the same pass last season 12/13 for about $380 (don't remember exact price, I had purchased it in Late April) and was hoping that for 13/14 the price would be the same for current pass holders (not like $50+ more) but I guess, I'll wait till October and probably buy it again.

 

P.S. don't mind blackouts, I don't like crowded slopes during holidays anyhow.

The Tahoe Local Early Bird price was $419 last year.

Most of the pass' through the Vail Resorts package increased $20-30/season but they're still one of the best deals in the industry.   Even the Tahoe Super Pass from Squaw/Alpine Meadows.  increased a bit this season. 

 

All of these deals are the envy of our fellow skiers in Montana, Utah and on the East Coast.

my apology, I checked it out, I did pay $419 for the pass, $389 was Kirkwood only pass.

and even so, I would like to pay the same amount this year, since it won't happening, $439 is not bad either.

No apologies necessary.  We all wish we could get our pass' a bit cheaper. 

 

See you on the snow!

You can't get the pass cheaper-Vail is notorious for no deals or prices changes no matter what.

But if you start to bend the rules and maximize your pass benefits, you can start trying to reclaim some money back.  

Depends how cheap you are and how much time and effort you want to put in to get back a few dollars.

For example, and speaking well within your passholder rights, you work hard to arrange to sell your buddy tickets to people who would otherwise are going to pay the walk-up rate, and then profit from the savings.

Whether this comes as a "cost" of your friends, is something you have to evaluate yourself.

no getting profit out from my friends is not acceptable.

I just thought that may be such program exist, why you bring multiple people to sign-up for season pass (like 6 or 8) all of you would get some discounted price (some resorts in the past in Tahoe used this practice), but I guess Vail is not practicing it.

Some resorts may give a group rate if you get 25 or more to sign up, but that practice has gone by the wayside with the cheap pass' that places like Vail Resorts and Squaw/Alpine have been offering. 

 

For the price of a pass to one resort in Utah, I can get two pass' in Tahoe that cover 5 of the major resorts.

Oleg,

 

If you are taking some college classes you can get a deal 

Quote: From snow.com
College pass holders must present proof of at least 12 credit hours (undergraduate) or 6 hours (graduate) for the 2013/2014 school year when picking up their pass.

Checkout craigslist. There's a guy who is selling passes at a 40% discount until Nov 22.
