Cheapest Option: Mountain Collective vs. Ski Utah Super Pass vs ? - for Mammoth and LCC/BCC Trip

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I set this up for myself, to do a price comparison, based on what I *think* I will do: 

 

Mammoth and Alta/Bird/Brighton/Solitude with Mountain Collective: $783.50 total 
$389 for Mountain Collective
Mammoth Day 1 - $0 (free day from MC)

Mammoth Day 2 - $0 (free day from MC)
Md3 - 49.50 (Half off from MC)
md4- 49.50 (half off from MC)
md5- 49.50 (half off from MC)
abirdd1-$0 (free day from MC)
abirdd2-$0 (free day from MC) 
utah - $72 (Solitude)
utah - $66 (Brighton)
utah - $54 (half off AltaBird on MC)
utah - $54 (half off AltaBird on MC)

Mammoth and Alta/Bird/Brighton/Tude with Super Pass: $913 total
$426 for 6 days of LCC/BCC Skiing
$487 for 5 day pass during Christmas week (this is based on mammoth's early season lift ticket buy on their website right now...)

 

 

Am I missing something? The only other price savings I could add is to lower the day to day utah pass by buying a discount lift  ticket at Powder House by the 7-11 at the mouth of the canyons. But even doing that isn't going to make the ski salt lake super pass cheaper.

 

The only way I could see the super pass being worth it is there's a way to save major money on a day to day pass at Mammoth that I am missing or am unaware of? Liftopia is totally booked for Dec 21 - 28ish (roughly those are my dates!)

The only thing you are missing is that the MCP would give you 50% off any additional trips to either Mammoth or AltaBird, if you chose to do so. The Superpass option won't. There's a good chance that once you do your planned trip(s) you'll want to do some more.

Right. Those are accounted for with the two days listed at $54 for utah (thats half off the altabird pass) and the 3 days listed at $49.50 at mammoth. 

Added bonus: contemplating an early season trip to Banff. MC becomes a nobrainer, even if there is no snow there. Nice to have as a possibility!
