Any good multi-resort season passes that would be attractive to East Coasters

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Mountain Collective has Stowe but that's it, and there's the 2-days-per-resort rule to contend with as well. Any other passes for 16/17 that we anticipate will have substantial East Coast participation?

 

Thanks!

have you checked out MAX Pass?

Just discovered it and it seems like the best option for East Coasters. Anything other than the MAX pass? Thanks!

Check out the  Mountains of Distinction Program offered be many Eastern ski areas.

You still need to have a season pass at one of the areas to participate.

 

These areas include:

 

Ski Roundtop, Ski Liberty, Whitetail, and Seven Springs in Pennsylvania;

Wintergreen in Virginia.

Shawnee Peak in Maine;

Crystal Mountain in Michigan;

Jiminy Peak and Wachusett Mountain in Massachusetts;

Mt. Sunapee in New Hampshire;

Windham, Bristol Mountain, and Holiday Valley in New York;

and Okemo and Jay Peak in Vermont.

Just to be clear, after the 2 included days at each destination, any additional days are 50% off for someone who has the MCP.

 

With the MAX Pass, 5 days are included for each location but there is no further discount for additional days.  Two ways to get the MAX Pass, either as an add-on to selected premium season passes or as a stand along pass for $600-800 depending on when it's purchased.

The New England pass includes Sunday river , Sugarloaf & Loon. Discounts if you buy it by April 30.

The price for the MAX Pass goes up after 5/2/2016.  Added Solitude, Alyeska, and Wachusett for 2016-17.

I looked at Mid Atlantic resort pass offerings a couple years ago.  Saw several that looked very enticing and thrifty... until I dug in to the blackout dates.  It seems that in the West and Midwest you can still find resorts that offer full access passes for under $500 that have no blackout dates.  I believe that Timberline might have GREAT deals on passes since they are perpetually in dire financial condition and always scrambling to raise capital quickly.  Other than that, I haven't found anything for under $1,000 with no blackouts east of Ohio.

 

It's easy to say $1,500 is a value for someone that skis 25 days since lift tickets most places are pushing $75 now.  If you ski bell to bell and pay full price at the window that is 5 free days because breakeven is 20 full weekend/holiday day top price tickets.

You mean east of Ohio? Seems like you're contradicting yourself.
