    I know there's alot of unknowns with the vail takeover but does anybody know if/how much lift ticket prices will actually go up tomorrow? The website says the pre-season "deals" last through today. We have a trip planned for january so I'm debating if its worth it to pull the trigger now or if I can hold off?

    Buy an edge card today if you think you will ski 5 days. There will not be any deals near as good going forward. You can go on WB website and see the multi day ticket cost for your dates right now.

    Vail North aka Whistler Conditions 2017-18



    2 meters (unconsolidated) at Pig Alley is decent for mid November. Looking forward to risking my legs by bouncing over stumps and logs.

    Last year opening weekend Sunday was 3m season to date with 2m settled at Pig Alley.

    Don't you have to be a canada or washington resident for the edge card? We live in Oregon. Also probably only skiing 3 days

    The multi day rates are what I was looking at but it says that the current prices are only good if purchased by today. Thats why I was curious about the rate hike

    Oh I assumed WA for some reason. Only way to know the answer is to call WB which is impossible right now. I would just buy them since Vailís style is not to have cheaper day rates once the season starts.

    hope this pass shit show isn't indicative of how the rest of the mountain will be run this year, although from the things I'm hearing from long term staff, it's a shit show behind the scenes too...if I hadn't read this thread the Mrs and I wouldn't have figured out why she hadn't received her pass, she could've easily made time in the past few weekends to get into guest services to get the photo updated if she knew that had to happen, now she's stuck in work until the weekend and is going to get stuck standing in some stupid line for hours instead of shredding.

    Did they change it? We're Oregonians and had an Edge card last year

    Looked into a sleigh ride when I was there with the wife last February (can't beat USD$118/night for a 1bdr condo in the village!). Was thinking a couple hundo. Nice getaway/xmas/early anniversary gift. Was thinking $200. Nope, $400+ IIRC. Too rich for my blood.

    Passholders perks ?
    Anyone have the beta what perks they will be offering for this season. Will they be doing the 2 for 1 fresh tracks tickets, $500 discounted gift card deal, etc.. Also how does the discounted bring a buddy thing work. It's all so confusing. Esp since the deals are different depending on which pass you have.

WB is supposedly adding more staff/locations to do this (Canski, Carlton etc) but itís going to be an absolute gong show this weekend.

    At least I confirmed my pass is good to go. Guess Iíll see my buddy around noon haha.
    yup i just confirmed this as well. motherfuckers... i guess i'll be one of the many at guest services on sunday morning. hoping the lines aren't too long at creekside. also, for anyone like me that forgot, if you bought your edge card before apr. 8 2017, you get unlimited skiing till dec. 15.

    yeah you can normally tour, but its up to patrol whether they open the "gates". Generally its a good bet they will be at some point if the avi conditions are favorable

    also. its fucking deep up there!

    WB Unlimited pass gets two 50% off day tickets plus 20% food and retail. No mention of the $500 gift certificate or fresh tracks yet. Agree the info is harder to find than normal.

    Iím shocked WB still hasnít communicated to edge/passholders about this fiasco. There are going to be a lot of people waiting in the gondola line with last year RFID getting turned around to go to guest services for a 1+ hour wait. Huge fail to not even send a heads up email with a contingency plan.

    Combine this with huge snow hype, storm forecast Saturday and itís a recipe for a massive gong show. Canít wait for the comedy on the sea to sky... oh well, as long as I ski pow Iíll deal with it.

    apparently also hearing that if you aren't up to date on your waiver you'll need to go into GS and sign one, even if they sent you a new pass...I actually randomly read that online this morning so went to creekside to check, I apparently was up to date, but I did have a summer bike park pass so maybe that was acceptable. I shudder to think what kind of CF tomorrow morning will be

    Creekside GS today... 1hr turn around time. Going to be interesting this weekend.

    Fresh tracks and gift card deal are going to be offered for unlimited passholders again this season. Gift card deal TBA soon.

    I'd be very tempted to just buy a day ticket and then bitch and moan at Guest Services at the end of the day to try to get the ticket price refunded.

    I'm jonesin' to ride the white stuff but a conference Friday to Sunday has me now patiently waiting and a bit of time to figure out the pass. Finger crossed I can shape my work schedule to take some week powder wellness days as the last couple of years have been near impossible.

    You can't blame Vail for that one and besides Whistler has always been a line up and overpay for just about everything kind of place. Or you could just wait until April when the crowds disappear and everything is on sale. Better chance of seeing the sun in April as well.
