What does your season pass cost? - Page 2

 Stowe pass = over $1800, $1400 pre-season. I think the next highest in VT is Sugarbush at $1400.

I saw that, thats just outrageous. Stowe has good skiing no doubt, but Ill be much happier at Mount Snow with an extra $1200 in my pocket...

$795 for 24 lift tickets good at 22 Pennsylvania ski areas . Some resorts have black outs. The tickets are transferable and I can use multiple tickets per day. I don't think I could stand skiing only 1 PA resort all season so this makes sense to me. I'll use about half of them myself and the rest will go to family.

Bought an all mountain pass for Sugarbush for $999 in May which includes a pass for my 11 year old.  Purchased early to save $$. Current price is $1,469

The wide range in season pass prices is amazing, isn't it?  And it doesn't seem to be directly related to amenities, size, competition, placement on the magazine Top 10 lists.....

I am such a romantic. For our 23rd anniversary I bought my wife the most thoughtful gift I could imagine - his and hers New England Ski passes - Sugarloaf, Sunday River and Loon. Got the Silver for $649 which has 14 blackout days around the holidays. No biggie because we usually go to Le Massif in Quebec during the Christmas vacation (amazing hill!) and would stay away from the Loaf during zoo conditions in Feb. At something like $75 per day ticket, not a bad deal - but nothing like the Epic Pass out west. Dang!

What is the pass called and where did you purchase it?
post #40 of 82
Well, my formula for the how much my past costs me goes as such:

$0 for the pass
-$2000 in pay for the season
+$500 spent on food at the mountain
+$1000 spent at the lodge bar
= The mountain pays me about $500 for my pass.

Oh, and my pass costs me all of my days off between December and March.

Location, location ,location.

Well, let's define what you mean by that.  Aspen, for instance.  They have plenty of competition.  They don't have that much acreage.  What makes them so high?  Why is Stowe so high?  I think it would be interesting to name what someone thinks the variable is that is the main factor and then line some of these areas up side-by-side (distance from a metro area, acreage, terrain variety, income demographics, whatever...) and see if the season pass prices really track by that variable.

I don';t think this is what he meant by location, location, but snow-making, snow-making.

We paid a little over $1200.00 for the two of us at Bristol Mountain NY for their "Executive Pass" and locker. They have an early buy program which saves $100 and allows payment over 6 months. Sure, it's not cheap compared to some of the Colorado deals, especially considering the size difference, but is competitive with other Upstate NY areas that the deliver the same level of service as far as lifts, snowmaking etc.
I average about 60-70 days there, so the per day price is pretty low. Yep, I'd rather ski out west or Vermont, this is where I live.............

$350 to Brundage, ID.  Not a big hill, but a fabulous little place, plus discounts at Sun Valley for a winter Roadtrip! only 5hours down and back up!

Bought my 11 year old son a season pass for $139. If he maintains a 3.0 GPA and doesnt get in trouble at school, they take the kids to Dodge Ridge every Friday beginning in January. Now thats a good deal. I am hoping my 15 year old daughter gets a job up there to cover here pass. At my job, they cut costs be giving us 15 furlough (unpaid) days off plus our regular vacation days. The adult season pass at Dodge is $349. With reports of El Nino, I am pretty stoked about the how much skiing we'll be doing this season.

$289 gives me weekdays, nights, and weekends before december 26 and after february 28 along with a $15 discount on all other lift tickets i may buy. I need to go about 6 times to earn it back which is good for me because I'd like to check out some other mountains.

all mine costs is a few days of teaching to get a free pass to Stratton and all other Intrawest resorts for 5 free days. :)
post #49 of 82
midweek plus (weekends at silver creek )snowshoe $314 back in oct.
post #50 of 82
I think I paid $320 for my unlimited pass. This was with the student and early purchase discounts, but I could have saved more if I had bought back in the spring. Live and learn.

About $500 for the ski pass (Nubs).  Another $1000 for the lodging pass, but I split that with my wife, so it's about a K for unlimited skiing and accommodations.

I'm debating on whether to buy a White Gold Card this season (24 days at 24 different resorts for under $200).  I had one last season but didn't break even on it due to the passes above.  Maybe if I could plan a swing through the Yoop...

6 more days to those planning on at least 2 weeks in Colorado, Me I'll spend some time & $$ in Utah

Yeh, also some time and $$ in Mi. - maybe I should just say the h--l with it and winter over in the west. If I could just convince - - - -

$199 at Bogus Basin. Pass rates go up as the season gets closer. For that price, you have to purchase in February. It's a combined alpine and nordic pass and comes with one free guest day pass.
post #54 of 82
I think it was $379 for the Seven Springs Pass
                   $439 for the Epic Pass

Never seem to have more than $25 in my wallet , so I couldn't afford to go skiing without it already being paid for!

$300 for a season pass to Squaw Valley.  Blackout dates are Dec 26 - Jan 2, Jan 16-17, and Feb 13-14
post #57 of 82

490 euros for my pass bought early (50 euro discount), which covers ALL of the Valchiavenna. That's just one ski area, actually, albeit a pretty big one by US standards.

 

Another 160 euros for Prickly Jr.

Mrs. P usually buys 2 or 3-hour ski passes only.

 

Don't even want to get into lessons, babysitting, food, gas (diesel, now), beer. Let's not. 

Next year I think Prickly Jr. moves up from the baby to the Jr. pass category, which will take a bite. And Prickly Jr. Jr. will be skiing too, adding even more cost, though at least lessening some of the babysitting expense. 

No wonder I'm poor. That and all the gear purchasing...

 Alyeska is $1210. You can get up to $100 off by buying early (as we did).
Perhaps not a great bargain compared to some of these areas, but the season is supposed to run to the end of May again. And it is one heck of a little ski area. We always get our money's worth.

What really surprises me about this thread is how many people have season passes to areas nowhere near where they live.I'd be interested in knowing how often people buy passes to areas far from home.
Since we live just a couple blocks from the ski lifts, a pass is a natural.
But I am not sure it would occur to me to buy a pass to an area hundreds or thousands of miles away.
post #59 of 82

Well, it all depends. Some of those passes are so cheap (Copper Mt. comes to mind) that it makes sense to buy one even if you're only planning on skiing for a week or so.

 

And then if you live in some non-skiing shithole, maybe you buy or rent yourself a place in the Rockies, and get yourself a couple of 10 or 20-day stretches during the season.

I'm about 100, 150 kilometers from where I own a pass.

Mt Hood Meadows, bought in groups of 4, $449, bought mine at the end of last season for $399. 16 year old sons pass was $299.
