    If youíre with your wife or significant other itís a great time to get busy and pass the time until they drop the chains on the doors and you have about an hour head start to lap the Collins chair before the crowds show up.

    sorry this might be buried in the thread, but if I use a day at Alta, and then go through the gate to Mineral Basin to Snowbird, is that still one day? Do I have to pay the $38?

    I'll take two, Please.

    Yo Pluffen - it's when the only road up to the AltaBird closes for Avy danger/slideage and the peeps staying at the ski area lodging get to make laps as soon as it opens but before the masses get to drive up. That's an outsider, neverhadit summary. Feel free to correct that, SLC mags.
    I suspect Interlodge is Unique to LCC at least in the lower 48.

    It's a grail to wish/hope for. I bet a handful here have experienced it, gots to be powski heaven.

    Soli Parking pass is $150, DAMN.

    My JH pass for the Ranch lot, (AKA the Boondocks) is $575 w/10 blackout days. $675 for no blackout; The All lot pass is $1350/$1150 Blackout.

    On the blackout days I just park in the one hour parking right in front of the tram, before the masses show up. Hang out in line for a while, then recruit 2 peeps to jump in the rig, drive out to the lot, park for free w/3 as a 'carpool'. Then we ride the shuttle back to the tram. Usually less than 300 paces all in and it's easy to get takers when I offer them a safety meeting before we get back.
    Met some cool tourists that way. Kinda blows their mind; and I am a chronic overloader...heh.

    Yeah, FKNA right it's crazy.
    But after 12 years of poaching the shite outta all the 1 hr parking spots, I decided to work a few extra days and just pay the fucking Man.

    Der Parking Fuhrer and I had an understanding that so long as I moved the car in a timely fashion, he'd keep his SS off my back. They nicknamed my Pathy so they could ID it over the radio and save themselves an earful from me.

    Happened occasionally at my long time home hill, Stevens Pass. West side of the pass would close. Sometimes would result in an entire morning with the chill eastern folk and no hoards from Seattle. Had a 30" day like that. Still have memories of that one.

    And paid parking, WTF! And they wonder why the sport isn't growing...

    Silverton gets snowed in several times a winter, but the road from town to SM closes rarely (they helibomb it).
    It's not quite as exclusive as Altabird interlodge though.

    The Interlodge at altabird is really something special. Iíve caught it a couple times on some big snow days. Ghost town for many many laps.

    You have to scan your pass to go through the Mineral gate, and I think you have to already have the $38 Bird ticket purchased and on the pass from the Alta base area. You canít do it at that checkpoint.

    Honestly, just ski Alta, then ski the Bird on another day. $38 is better spent on beers than trying to wrap your head around quality runs in all that terrain.

    Pick Alta or Snowbird for the day - either has ample terrain. The ability to cross between them is a marketing thing, but not really useful.

    And I think one Ikon day gets you one or the other, but not both. Not sure though.

    Keyhole before 3:30 is a fun run and free drop.

    Pretty sure Ikon days are Alta/Bird combined, so you can pass through the gates as you want.

    And it is more than a novelty, particularly when certain terrain is open or when certain lifts open after a storm. But I'm not going to spew my crowd avoidance strategy all over the internet

    Its very useful when you are on the MC and chose your bonus 3rd day for use at Alta, but then your significant other wants to snowboard... Its still only $38 to upgrade the MC comp ticket to an Altabird ticket.

    I used MC in the past and a single MC day covered both Alta and Snowbird. I didn't know that about Ikon.

    Yup, it's usually the other way ... you're at the 'Bird, visibility sucks, and you want to get in the trees, so you head to Alta for great trees.

    That will be the end of the cheap ass mid week Boomer pass. That’s too bad. That was one of the best deals going right now.

    So no unlimited access? Is that what they did in other acquisitions?

    Sugarbush Resort Ikon Pass access will remain the same for winter 2019/2020, with 7-day access on the Ikon Pass and 5-days access with blackouts on the Ikon Base Pass.
