What does your season pass cost? - Page 3

post #61 of 82
Now I know it is just a 635ft incline, but Mont-Gabriel pre season special was only 220$
7day two night pass.

However, I upgraded it as St-Sauveur had a 399 special for all 5 mountains they manage.

1800 but is just outrageous!

For 1300$ canadian, you can get a Maneige pass and sky anywhere in Quebec!
Anywhere anytime!

Snowbowl's Season Pass is $574, it was $509 before November 9th.

I did work trade up on the mountain, so it was 60 hours of work plus the cost of gas for eight days,  maybe $50?

$279 for a Jiminy Peak (Berkshires, Ma) Twilight pass (3-10pm) with no black out dates.  I should have purchased it by the earlier deadline, it would have only been $229.  It's a smaller mountain, but only 45-60 minutes away.  I'm not a morning person, so the night skiing will be great.  Hopefully, we will be able to squeeze in at least one day of week night skiing each week. 

We used to do the Stratton Sunday pass for $199, but we got a little bored of the mountain after a few years of skiing it.

We just moved to Estes Park (wife's job) and I bought an Eldora pass for 419.00 which seems like lot. But an hour drive vs 3 hours+ for the I-70 resorts made me want to try out Eldora-I am hoping it is a good little locals mountain somewhat like Red Lodge where I had a pass last season.

$199; Unrestricted access to Vail, Beaver Creek, Keystone, Breckenridge, A-Basin and Heavenly (that continues on into summer).  That rate isn't "normal" though.

Big sky is big tho.  Probably as big and good as Squaw and Mammoth?  Squaw and Mammoth are both just under $2000, except for the just opened up for a couple of weeks MVP at Mammoth which was about $500, but you have to renew each year to be sure to get it the next year.

I think Jackson Hole is a really bad deal too.  I have never been to JH, it looks really good on paper, but I heard it is south facing and not the best snow quality?  Comments?

True, you only have to live near one of the 7 or so resorts for it to be a good deal.  I am not a huge fan of Heavenly, but just the price of the epic makes it a great deal for someone in SLT

Unlimited skiing at our local bump, Kolsåsbakken:

NOK 3000 = $540 for me
NOK 2600 = $466 for the boy

minus NOK 400 for buying two passes, makes NOK5200 = $933 for the two of us.

Unless we get a better discount through his race team - fingers crossed.

It's an independent owner-operated motel with more rooms than they can usually rent.  Since they usually have rooms sitting empty, they offer a season pass deal - $995 for unlimited stays anytime the lifts are turning with the exception of XMas week.  It probably works out to $50/night.

I live in AL. I have never had a season pass :(. I get about 15 days in out west at a number of great resorts and know how to hustle and get lifties for cheap. Be so glad you have a pass and can ski whenever you want on your days off from Nov-April.

Can you please explain how you got the epic (I assume it is the epic) for just $199??

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.


Yup, the chamber of commerce of ??? had a sale of mt baldy (southern california, REAL socal, like LA, not mammoth) season passes for just $50.  Haven't skied there, but apparently they have ACTUAL expert terrain.  Not bad if you have relatives you visit in socal

Just picked mine up for Mt. Bohemia and Porkies in the MI UP. $131 with all the fees and no blackout dates.

Thank god my wife's family lives only about 15 min. from the Porkies and an hour from Bohemia. Otherwise both places are a trek for most people in WI.

My 20 hour a week job is with a non-profit organization that has an interest in ski racing.  So to begin, I get the EPIC at slightly reduced rate for certain non-profits and on top of that, the organization repays us for a portion of the cost.  $199 is great but so is the normal price for the pass.

What kills me is my LOCKER is up to what some of these season passes cost.  $205!  And I ski enough that it's sort of a requirement.  I will fortunately share it this season with the daughter, halving the cost (phew), but in essence it adds that much to the lift ticket price.  They've been increasing locker prices faster than lift ticket prices.  I guess we're all still paying......

Try pricing a locker at Snowbasin!  And there's a wiating list a mile long.

I looked, but couldn't find the information.  How much is it?

I think the one we used to have is gone.  I don't think anyone used it anyway.
