Our country is built on credit and people like to buy things now and pay for them later.  Well, the inverse is also true, buy now and save on what it will cost you later.  If you are a skier, the best investment you can make is locking down your discount lift tickets before the price goes up.  While there are very few guarantees in life, it is certain lift ticket prices will rise.

SkiGenie is dedicated to helping you stay ahead of the game (but we can only wish you the best of luck with perfect snow conditions).  Over the past few years resorts have shifted their sales model to benefit those who plan ahead while penalizing less price sensitive customers that show up to the ticket window to purchase ski lift tickets day-of.  This model has worked and the ski pass deals continue to flow to those fortunate to know about them while others are busy water skiing and beaching.  If you buy during the offseason you can save big on new passes that offer unique opportunities to visit all of your favorite resorts.  Don’t get left out of the 2014/2015 ski season and you’ll thank yourself come Thanksgiving.


The deals are complex but there is not a lot of fine print (i.e. blackout dates).  Our recommendation for the well-travelled or those seeking to complete their bucket list is the Mountain Collective pass.  If you live in Colorado or ski Squaw Valley often you need the Epic Pass.  If you ski locally in the North East there are a number of options in NH to keep the cost down next season.


  • This off-season Mountain Collective is offering a $359 pass good for 2 days each (12 in total) at Alta / Snowbird, Aspen Snowmass, Jackson Hole, Mammoth, Whistler Blackcomb and Squaw Valley / Alpine Meadows – all for the cost of just 3 single day lift tickets at any of these resorts.  Plus you get 50% off additional days and discounts on lodging.  Available until sold out….


  • The infamous Epic Pass is back again and this year it comes with a range of options from $369-729 for adults, with the best option including unlimited days in Colorado at Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone; in Utah at Canyons; in Lake Tahoe at Heavenly, Northstar, Kirkwood; in the Midwest at Afton Alps, Mt. Brighton and as an added bonus 5-days at Niseko, Japan and up to 5 days at Verbier, Switzerland and Les 3 Vallees, France (if you stay in resort lodging).  If you don’t recognize Niseko, it is the world’s famous powder paradise delivering 600+ inches of snow each year, you can familiarize yourself here


  • The Rocky Mountain Superpass+ for $509 (adults) includes unlimited skiing and riding at Winter Park / Mary Jane and Copper Mountain, plus six unrestricted days at Steamboat and three unrestricted days at Crested Butte.


  • The Salt Lake Super Pass good for Alta, Snowbird, Brighton and Solitude may benefit some but is recommended for extended stays (you must use your days within a 7-14 day window of day 1.  Solitude is often overlooked but offers some of the best snow in the area.


  • The NH Season pass programs include a number of options for some of NH’s top resorts that are a short drive for those Boston based skiers and riders.  Ski resorts include, Waterville Valley, Cannon, Bretton Woods, Cranmore and Mt. Sunapee.


Cheap turns are happy turns 🙂
