Who has signed up for passes for the 2017-18 ski year?

I’ll have year three of the Timberline #NotSoAwesomePass, Canaan Valley (early purchase discount), Mountain Collective (3rd free day at Jackson Hole, will hit 3x Utah resorts), and will do Spring Pass at ABasin (with upgrade to following year’s pass.)

 Laurel Mountain pass, Timberline #NotSoAwesomePass, and although not purchased yet I will be getting the PA Dedicated Skier pass. I might get the MCP. JohnL, do you have to pick the third day of MCP at the time of purchase?

Yep, on third day. That xtra doesnt last long.

I currently have snowshoe for next year, and will probably get snowtime pass or advantage card and depending on work travel might add the max pass to my snowshoe pass.

wisp posted something on instagram making it sound like they will be running a special on their pass. I wonder if this has anything to do with the feedback they got from their lack of snowmaking this year.

Lowest price for the MCP, with bonus day, probably will be gone within a week.  The bonus day has been available until June in the past.  But no guarantees the same will happen this year.  Slight changes in pricing and timing every year.

MCP just went up to $429.

Just purchased the MCP. To further update my pass purchases for next season, I still have a sizeable balance with Liftopia from cancelling this year’s Utah vacation due to my wife’s protracted illness. Now I might finally break that 50 day per season threshold next year.

Did you buy some sort of ticket insurance?

The insurance offered through the MCP is not available for residence of PA. for some reason. What was the deal on the insurance?

I was asking about Lifopia balance, not MCP. I thought Lifopia was use or lose. Is there something I’m missing?

Hope Kathy is doing better.

Kathy is doing better and now she has an additional reason to hit her fitness goals. This protracted pulmonary illness has left her really weak. Her breathing is much better. I’m suspecting that her “asthma” was a long term bacterial infection, real long term.

Liftopia will credit your account with proof of valid medical reason (letter from your doctor). They will not refund your money but they will credit your account for your original purchase amount. Not only did they credit her purchase but also the amount my son and I spent. 

Do you think this is the Capitols year or will they continue to dissappoint? I think they are the team to beat this year, at least in our division. The Pens have been playing well and getting a lot of “secondary” scoring but I worry that inguries will catch up to them.

I have the Snowshoe pass for next season.  Strongly considering the Max Pass Add on if it is an option this year.

rbr - My buddy in Deep Creek txt me last night - Wisp has a 249 pass

The MCP went off sale as of 7/1/17 at $449 with the bonus day.  Website says it will be available again in the “fall” and usually means some time in August.

6 days ago

The MAX Pass went up to $729 for adults after 10/10/17. Still a decent deal for someone who can get in 12+ days, especially with one week ski vacation to Big Sky or Steamboat or Crested Butte. Or one of the higher end resorts in the northeast such as Tremblant, Killington, Stratton, or Okemo. Essentially any place where it’s hard to find a lift ticket for <$90/day.

The Add-on, Teen, and Youth prices went up $50 too.

6 days ago

The MCP was $469 in August and September, then went up to $489 on Oct. 1.  Niseko was added during the summer.

Of course, it’s hard to say what U.S. locations will be with the MCP for 2018-19 with the ownership changes completed in 2017 for Intrawest (Snowshoe, Tremblant, Steamboat, etc.), Mammoth, and Deer Valley that combine them with Squaw/Alpine.

I Plan on using MCP for Alta, Bird, Snowbasin, JH and Sugarbush this season.

When are you going to SLC?

I’m going to Taos and Telluride in Feb.  Alta/Snowbird during late season per usual.

Pugski Gathering is main trip. Hope to get another first week of April.

I’ll make a note about early April.  Current plan is that Bill and I will be at Alta Lodge in the middle of a longer stay.  But if other friends don’t make it that week, we might go elsewhere for a few days.  Or do day trips away from LCC.

What did the Max Pass start at this year? It is now around 800. Still a good deal. 

I am locked into Epic this year but my return to the East Coast may have me look at Max next year. Especially as I like to ski multiple places.

Yep, still a decent deal for someone who is planning to ski 5 days at one of the major resorts on the MAX Pass.  But probably more useful to someone who wants to add on to an existing season pass.  For a standalone MAX Pass bought in October, makes sense only if can be sure of getting in 12+ days by the end of the season.

With the change in ownership for Intrawest and the creation of a multi-resort company that includes a few current MCP destination resorts (Squaw/Alpine, Mammoth), very hard to say what the MAX Pass will include for 2018-19.
