Sizing Up Ski Passes

Whether it be dropping into the fresh snow of a back bowl, a vacay with the girls, or spring skiing with the family, it’s time to start thinking about the 2017-18 ski season. If you are the kind of person who doesn’t go a winter without a full season pass, it’s high time you consider the Multi Alpine Experience (MAX) Pass. It packs a lot of skiing into one little card. Giving you access to 44 ski resorts all across North America, it’s a great choice for anyone thinking about hitting distant slopes. With up to five days to spend at each resort, it’s the pass that offers you unlimited access to some of the world’s best powder.

Included in the list of resorts are Colorado’s famed ski hills Copper Mountain, Winter Park and Steamboat Springs. Colorado is known as one of the world’s top ski destinations, with the champagne powder and sunny blue skies over the Rocky Mountains being something that everyone needs to experience at some point in their life. Wanting to take a day off the slopes? Denver is a hip city that provides everything needed for the perfect day off, boasting amazing restaurants, a multitude of brew pubs and breathtaking public art.

Just how easy does it make to ski North America’s best slopes? You could ski at Mont Tremblant five times over the course of next season, and then head to Colorado to ski five days each at Copper Mountain, Winter Park and Steamboat Springs. Instead of paying the walk-up price of an average $150, for those twenty days of skiing, you’d pay an average of $32 USD. The savings are so good that almost everyone knows to purchase tickets online before heading to the slopes. Not only is the MAX Pass more convenient, but it saves an average of 20% off your lift ticket. Throw in a weekend at White Face, NY, or a few days at Blue Mountain north of Toronto, and the average day rate drops even more. The MAX Pass is starting to look pretty sweet.

If you are already a Mont Tremblant passholder, you can buy a MAX Pass add-on for $329 USD, which quickly pays over the course of a few lift tickets. If you are thinking about heading out west to ski in the Rockies, for instance, it offers huge savings.

If a ski getaway is in the cards, consider Colorado as the destination and reserve your MAX Pass here. You don’t have to pay in full immediately, so reserve one soon! The prices go up on May 1, 2017.
