No PC Quickstart but half price Snowbird/Alta tix

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

With the gang in Park City not getting along, it appears there won't be a Quickstart free ski day promotion this year.  Quickstart gave you a free lift ticket on the day you arrive by plane in Utah as long as you signed up ahead of time, and showed your boarding pass.

 

However, it looks like Snowbird and Alta have a half-price ticket deal good within 24 hours of your next flight on a Monday-Friday.

With that, it appears if you get there on a Monday night, you can ski half price on Tuesday!  

 

In my opinion a full day half price ticket in LCC is far better than the half day or so you'd get in PC for free.

 

Edit: the Powder Mag article implies half price, but it looks like the snowbird website says its $52.50

Also available from Alta.  The discounted pass is an Alta/Bird combo pass.  MUST pre-register at least a day before you leave home.  $52.50 is 50% off the $105 day pass price for Alta/Bird.  Went up from last season I think.

  • The date of redemption and the date on your airline boarding pass must be within 24 hours of arrival, Monday through Friday during the 2013/14 winter season. Half-price tickets will not be issued on Saturdays and Sundays.
  • Your printed Boarding Pass and ID must be presented at the resort ticket window. You must register for Boarding Pass at least 24 hours prior to your flight departure, no exceptions.

So the way this would work for a M-F gathering (lodging at Alta) plan would be...

 

Arrive Mon- Half day Alta pass (or even the after 3 pass if I'm getting some boot issues handled at the DPH)

Tues- Boarding pass AltaBird for 52.50

Wed- Full day AltaBird

Thurs- Full day Alta

Fri- Half day Alta or head to Solitude and do half day there.

 

For our purposes this would give 2 days of AltaBird pass for average of 2 full day Alta pass.

 

Is that about right?

 

Have to do the math but pretty close to a wash and probably more convenient than a non-consecutive Alta pass, w Wed shuttle ride back and forth to Snowbird and Snowbird day pass for Wed. Either way that's a good plan!
