SAVING ON THAT SNOW - 2018/2019 I
It's already started snowing in Europe, BC, and Wyoming. Sliding on snow is right around the corner. What corner? Is there already someone working this corner? Is this a fruitful corner? Who knows.
This season Elevated Locals is partnering with Powder Alliance. The humans that are Powder Alliance created the greatest mulit-resort pass that there is, they also invented marshmallows and driving. Impressed much? So, we are only going to talk about the Powder Alliance for a while - it's the bestest of all the best. Known as the laid back chill kid with effortless style that never tries too hard, this pass is also free. Yeah. So here's how it works:
Have a season pass from a Powder Alliance affiliated Resort and get three free midweek tickets (or three 1/2 price weekend tickets) to all the other Powder Alliance Resorts. Here are the resorts:
ANGEL FIRE - NM
Angel Fire's season pass is $419, lift tickets are $79 - so you only need to go six times before you are skiing for free. It's $419 until Nov. 1st, then the price goes up to $619. They also have a Teacher's Season Pass, which is so cool. If you teach K-12 you get a pass for $99. Like whoa. Angel Fire is having a flash sale rn that ends today on 4-Packs for $149 ($37.25 a ticket) and 6-Packs $199 ($33.17 a ticket).
BOGUS BASIN - ID
The Season Pass at Bogus is $399 rn - lift tickets are $62 - that's seven times before the pass pays for itself. We dig the $99 Night Pass. Fun fact - Bogus is a non-profit mountain.
BRIDGER BOWL - MT
It's $690 for a season pass until 10/15/18 then the price goes up to $840. They also have sweet frequency cards for $65 - these cards give you one free day and $34 lift tickets early and late season. Party.

LOVELAND - CO
MARMOT BASIN - AB
Marmot has an Escape Card - this card gives you half of lift tickets all season for $79. Houdini. Their season pass is $1,274.70 - a very specific price.
MONARCH MOUNTAIN - CO
Monarch's season pass is $459 until 9/10/18. Lift tickets are $89, so after six times the pass pays for itself. You can also buy a Blue Card for $250. The Blue Card comes with five passes.
Next week we will tell you about the other Powder Alliance resorts, but don't just stare at your screen with anticipation until then. You can also go to their site, and see the raddness for yourself. This pass is a true locals pass, visiting these low-key mountains mid-week will give you the ideal experience. No lines = more snow lines.
Okay - until next week - peacearoni!
