Sugarloaf/Sunday River...new season pass prices

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Unlimited pass is $799 good at both SR & The Loaf...I'm OK with it, pretty much ski just those two mountains anyway and actually thought it would be higher. Paid $629 last year for the All East Pass....so yes it's higher but still reasonable for a good one-two punch of ski areas.

Sunday River and Sugarloaf/USA unveil The Maine Pass
Combined season pass will go on sale on or before Wednesday, Aug. 15

NEWRY, Maine (July 19, 2007) – Maine’s two largest ski and snowboard resorts, Sunday River and Sugarloaf/USA, are pleased to announce a combined season pass for the upcoming winter season. The new Maine Pass will go on sale on or before Wednesday, Aug. 15.

“We’re pleased to offer a value priced season pass valid at both Sunday River and Sugarloaf/USA,” said Dana Bullen, president and managing director of Sunday River. “Skiers and riders used to sampling more than one resort won’t have to choose between the eight peaks of Sunday River or the snowfields at Sugarloaf/USA. With the Maine Pass they can have both, while also enjoying perks at our new sister resorts out west.”

The Maine Pass is a tiered season pass with three levels. The Bronze Maine Pass is $299 and is an all ages pass valid midweek non-holiday. The Silver Maine Pass is $499 and is an all ages pass valid seven days a week with 12 blackout dates on holidays and select Saturdays. The Gold Maine Pass is valid every day of the season and ranges from $399 for seniors to $799 for adults. The full list of products and prices is available at www.sundayriver.com and www.sugarloaf.com.

Current early purchase rates are in effect until the fall deadline of Oct. 15, at which point rates on all products will increase. Maine Student Passes are also being offered beginning by Aug 15. College Student Season Passes will be announced at a later date.

“The Maine Pass is all about value,” said John Diller, president and managing director of Sugarloaf/USA. “The Maine Pass offers flexible pricing options, diverse terrain and dependable snowmaking. Since Maine skiing offers less crowds, big mountains and great snow, we’re anticipating a positive response from New England skiers and riders.”

Skiers and riders who purchase a Maine Pass will receive additional benefits including retail discounts at the Resorts and free or discounted skiing at Boyne USA resorts in the U.S. and Canada including Big Sky in Montana, Brighton in Utah, Crystal Mountain in Washington, Boyne Mountain and Boyne Highlands in Michigan, and Cypress Mountain in British Columbia.

Sunday River and Sugarloaf/USA are both projected to open in mid-November and operate well into April.

Seems like an OK deal. I wish the had something more for the Maine students, either highschool or college.

Call and see what they're doing for students.

I have no idea what Boyne's policy will be in Maine, but in Michigan, high school and college students from the counties surrounding their resorts get FREE season passes with a good grade report.

Boyne is a very legitimate resort operator with a proud history. You guys are very lucky to have them.

There are lower priced Student Passes and also lower-priced passes with Blackout Days. Interesting that the "Gold Pass" also offers ten free days ay Boyne's Westerm resorts (BigSky etc.) and the "Silver Pass" (12 blackout days) offers 50% discount on Western lift tickets. Check out the link below:

RideC58,

Thanks for the heads up, either those passes were not up when I first viewed the page (the day that Boyne sent out the e-mail) or I just missed them.

So far the prices seem comparable to what has been offered the past few years. Last year I was looking into the College all east pass, I think it was around $350. Something like that would have worked itself out over a few trips to Killington, but obviously that is no longer going to exist.

I'll wait for the college pass prices to be released, then maybe pull the trigger. It seems like every year I'm always right on the border of the break even point for buying a pass, I know if i paid for one in August I would use it in December and March.

EDIT: I just noticed that ASC is still listed at the bottom of the pages, along w/ links to the canyons, sugarloaf, sunday river. am I missing something here?

It is my understanding that Boyne doesn't actually take ownership until July31. Maybe that is why, or maybe they just haven't gotten around to updating all the Web pages yet.

I was impressed when Kirchner took the time to register on EpicSki, and post about the purchase a while back. I think this family owned operation will continue to show respect for the sport.
