So most mountains sell discounted passes during the fall. Here are some deals and deadlines if you need to save for a bit; I never have piles of money lying around.
So the season pass is a fortune $1,549 (you need to go 23 days to break even), but there are some sweet deals in here. I got the early/late last year, and it rocked. The best deals need to be purchased before 9/5/11.
Jackson's season is Nov. 26th- April 8th (135 days) so if you hit the hill 100 times it's like $12 a day with a $1,195 season pass- no working allowed (nineteen days to break even) But seriously, they have sweet college deals (Mary).
My east coast fav. The Season Pass is $649 until Oct. 11th. Tickets are $69 so you need to go 10 times to break even.
It's $599 (9 days to break even) for a season pass before 9/11/2011. It's $249 for a college pass (Mary- four times to break even).
Their midweek pass is $499 until 10/13/2011. Their lift tickets are $69 so you need to go 8 times during the week to break even.
A season pass is $849 before 10/15/2011. That's 13 days to break even. But the midweek is $299, only five times to break even.
A season pass is $316.94 with tax.
That's nine times to break even. This deal is good until Sept. 20th.
Breck, Vail, Beaver, Keystone, Heavenly, Northstar, and A-Basin:
The amazing epic pass is $649 and gives you unlimited access to all of these resorts. There isn't a deadline on the website, but I know you can't get this deal after the season starts. Every time I see this deal I can't understand why I don't live there.
Ok, that's where I know I'm going next season- so that's all that matters- Ahahahahah
not really, I'll do more next Fri.
