2015-2016 Season Passes

Thank you to all of the Season Pass Holders who have stuck with us through thick and thin. We know it’s been a frustrating season. Although the season hasn’t been all bad (we’ve had some great days too), we know some of you probably regret purchasing a pass. It’s a gamble pass holders face every year. Luckily the odds are in your favor as this type of season has only happened 3 times in the past 39 years. Similar seasons were 2004-05, 1991-92 and 1976-77. Between those seasons there were a lot of really good ones – like 1998-99 when it snowed 600″ and the 2010-11 season when we skied until July 16th. We value and appreciate all of our season pass holders, therefore we’ve made some special considerations for the 2015-16 season including a 20% renewal discount on next years passes and some new added perks.  We simplified our passes to the two basic needs; Anytime and Midweek and we’ve included the gondola proving all-mountain access for everyone.

We’re Also Excited to Announce We’re Bringing Back the Child 10 & Under Pass for the 2015-16 Season

We know you didn’t like the changes we made last year and when you’re unhappy so are we. We listened to all of your feedback and voilà – it’s back! We’re committed to providing a great family experience every time you come to the mountain and we know this helps a lot of families spend quality time together – there’s really nothing else like it. Skiing and snowboarding is a family-tradition for many of us who work here, and we love watching our guests share their love for skiing and snowboarding with friends and future generations.

Enjoy Convenience, Flexibility & Other Great Benefits with a Season Pass

You not only get direct-to-lift access to world-class terrain, you also get discounts at our Western sister-resorts and the slope-side retail shops where you’ll find friendly and knowledgeable staff along with a great selection of winter gear.

Season Pass Holder Renewal Rates

All 2014-15 pass holders qualify for the renewal rates listed below and some sweet new V.I.P perks.  It’s our way of saying thank you to our loyal and dedicated customers.  Everyone will receive a shiny new season pass in the mail this year so this would be a good time to update your photo (this can be done during the checkout process online or in person at Guest Services).

Depending on the pass you choose it takes between 8-10 ski days to break-even with the Tier 1 renewal pricing, or 10-12 days as a new season pass buyer (based on an average price of $72/day).  That being said, we realize season passes aren’t for everyone which is why we also offer a great deal on 5-Day Voucher Packs which give you the same flexibility with less of a commitment.

GO Card & Other Unused Rollovers

Do you have a prepaid GO Card with remaining days left from the 2014-15 season?  If so, the value can be applied towards the purchase of a 15-16 season pass or 5-Pack.  Rollovers must be completed by June 30, 2015. Learn more
