    Yup, I gladly would too. And I say that as someone who probably makes a bit less than the average mag.

    That's what I was asking, which I did poorly. Thanks for clearing that up.

    I was tripped up by the language around a non-specific date ticket. To me, that could mean an IKON pass. Then again, I've yet to have an IKON pass and didn't realize it's the new season pass for a lot of ski areas.

    Ikon Pass

    Eldora also announced (though it is well hidden) that they will charge $10 per single occupant vehicle on weekends and pow days.
    So theyíre going to encourage students from Boulder (currently one of the counties with the most cases/100,000 in CO) to pack a car, to avoid that $10 charge?

    I'm sure they'll find as many ways to fuck it all up as possible.

    $10. Interesting. So they're incentivizing people who don't live in the same household to carpool.

    Squaw passes may have been 1600 years ago but in the cheap pass era the price dropped considerably and then went up a couple hundred bucks I believe when they went to Ikon. Some of you guys are living way in the past. (Also, they did away with senior passes, which I think is fair, since seniors probably use their passes more than most skiers and we have all the money as I'm constantly being reminded on this forum.)
    Alpine lot has been filling by 10A on ordinary Saturdays for many years, and Squaw lot has filled before Ikon on non holiday Saturdays as well.

    Edit--combined Squaw Alpine adult pass was $439 for the 16-17 season, first season of the merger. I think it was about 100 less for seniors.

    I wonder if the Covid will do in the IKON pass. Maybe next season I'll be able to buy a Squalpine only pass--for the price of this year's Ikon, or more.

    The website said something like the fee was imposed by Boulder County.

    Telluride's adult season pass price is $1750. They give you a 10% discount off of that price (through end of September) because they closed early last season.

    I just learned Taos has a 14-day quarantine for many states (but Colorado is currently on the exempt list...for now).

    Yes. Ski industry is saying "we need 75% capacity of our busiest day ever." That means its pretty rare to ever hit the cap.

    While that may sound good on paper, I can't imagine what the lift lines will look like to keep everyone spaced out. It will be a shitshow.

    Just snagged A-Basin passes before the price went up. $700 for myself and two teenage boys, which I think is a steal. We will be deferring our Ikon passes until next season. Really purchased the Ikon for A Basin, Taos, Aspen and Jackson, and I really just don't want to mess with the reservation system.

    While we will still mostly be at Loveland, I'm really looking forward to skiing A basin a bunch this year. The east wall and steep gullies are my happy places. It will also be really nice to have 6 days at Monarch.

    ^^ I would kill for that. However, i guarantee the price point won't increase more than 10% in a given year or most of the customers simply go away. Back when passes cost 20x the day ticket price, VR wasn't selling 900,000 passes to people skiing an average of <5 days a year.

    Rusty just sent this out to the Mammoth crew. I like it.

    This effort starts with controlling resort visitation levels to avoid overcrowding. We are prioritizing access for season pass holders and will tightly regulate the number of daily lift tickets that will be available by advance purchase only. To this end, walk-up window sales will be eliminated, and the sale of most undated lift ticket products will be discontinued until further notice. Please visit mammothmountain.com/covid for more information regarding our policies.

    Ikon Pass

    Are walk up sales really that significant anywhere? Multi passes kinda killed them, no?

    Ikon Pass

    I plunked down for the Abasin pass yesterday. Being out of work for 6 months drained the accounts for an expense pass of questionable use.
    But as a friend said. No work, more time to ski.

    They sent that language to everyone. I really want to know exactly what prioritizing pass holders means. And no, walkups are not the problem. Too many IKONs is.

    In my case as a mid week skier, I am feeling pretty good about that announcement. Ski Monday thru Thursday and split. Come back in two weeks and do it again.

    I know on big days the ticket windows at Snowbird have decent sized lines at them. You have to walk through them every tram lap.

    It's obvious that it's not for places that only allow limited days for ikon passes. But for places that allow unlimited, I'm guessing they can't show preference to those who buy their single mountain season pass over those who buy an ikon. But I'm just guessing, no answer has been provided.

    Huh. Thatís interesting. Deer Valley is limited. I wonder if this means that Ikon pass is non reservation at all Ikon resorts?
