    Worst Season Pass Deal

    What's the worst deals you know of?

    Mammoth Black Pass - $8000
    Curbside parking, cutting lift lines, fresh wax, and being a douchebag - for two.

    Bear Mountain Anytime - $700
    You will need to shred 28 days of shaved ice here to get to the golden $25/day zone, all without committing seppuku... Impossible

    Aspen Snowmass Premier - $2000
    What does that buy you? The opportunity to sit in I70 traffic for two more hours than people paying 1/3 the price...

    Clearly you don't know the market, this pass is for people with airplanes.

    If you miss the early bird deal, Stowe ski and ride pass is over $2000.

    $2,000 to ski at Stowe sounds pretty terrible.

    I nominate Big Sky's mid-week pass. It's Monday-Thursday only, which is 57% of the week, but it's 80% of the cost of a full pass. (Yes, I know you get a discount on weekend lift tickets, but it still blows.)

    squaw passes used to be as expensive as jackson...

    i wish they would go back to the higher prices, which would actually improve the value of the pass (by eliminating the crowds).

    squaw was like a private country club before 2010...

    Exactly, I don't see anyone bailing Aspen and moving to Vail, it's actually quite the opposite.

    If you're living the dream... who cares.

    There are some private places that would make a season pass price pale in comparison.

    Wow. Between that price and the crowds I cant believe the majority of the people still do it. Super Pass+ is $440 right now. Must be those back bowls.

    Aspen Premier includes the Mountain Collective pass. If you work for a business that is part of the Chamber of Commerce you pay around $1200. If you would rather pay less and ski closer to Denver, that's your right. If you haven't been here you won't understand the value. It's worth it. Not trying to be pompous, it's just a different scene free of weekend drive up traffic.

    2 hours of driving is better than 2 hours of lines. True statement tho.

    Clearly the winner is the North Carolina Gold Pass- $800 get you "unlimited" skiing at all 6 NC "mountains". My suggestion is take the 800 and buy two plane tickets. One to SLC and one to Denver. Then Commence skiing.

    Any pass at a Southern California hill(Baldy excepted). Maybe not as bad as the NC passes, but close.

    I agree it is a constitutional right for Americans to be assholes...its just too bad that so many take the opportunity...

    Some of the EC pass prices like those for Stowe and such are pretty funny. Big Sky has always been pricy, but in the scheme of things, it doesn't seem way off. Speaking of which, I think Boyne is keeping the Moonlight Pass. Little steeper and there's sales tax on it now, but it's not TOO bad at the sale price.
    Snowbowl is still probably the most overpriced ticket/pass around here. Especially considering the old school, falling apart lifts.
    No longer stuck.
