Pricing

No! Our introductory rates are the exact same as last year.

We no longer have a set window rate – lift tickets are priced based on availability and demand. 

A season pass remains the best value for anyone who will ski at least 6 days. Power Pass resorts have not required reservations for passholders, which means you have the freedom to ski whenever you want. Plus, a pass means you don’t have to hand-pick your dates and lock them early for a low rate. Don’t forget: when you use our no-interest payment plan, your monthly payments may be less than the cost of a single lift ticket.

A: Great news! The Power Pass and Power Pass Select offer special discounted pricing to young adults based on age (starting at age 18), not college credit.

Product Details

The Power Pass Select offers unlimited access to Brian Head and 5 other mountains plus 12 shared days between Arizona Snowbowl and Purgatory (blackout dates: 12/26/21 – 1/1/22, 1/15/22-1/16/22, 2/19/22-2/20/22) at a lower price point than the Power Pass. This pass also offers benefits such as 6 discounted tickets and 3 FREE days at partner resorts, all at a lower price point than the Power Pass.

These two products sound the same, but their benefits are different: the Power Pass comes with unlimited access to Purgatory and all of our mountains: no blackout dates! If you purchase this pass by 5/21/21, you receive 3 FREE days of mountain bike uplifts at each of our bike parks: Purgatory, Brian Head and Pajarito (in addition to the unlimited access at Spider Mountain through 4/30/22).

Both passes come with six 25% off discounted online lift tickets and 10% off on-mountain services, including food and beverage, ski school and rentals.

A: It all depends on when and where you want to ski. The Power Pass comes with unlimited access to Brian Head and all of our resorts. The Power Pass Select offers unlimited skiing at Brian Head plus 12 shared days of skiing at Snowbowl and Purgatory (blackout dates: 12/26/21 – 1/1/22, 1/15/22-1/16/22, 2/19/22-2/20/22). Brian Head also offers a discounted My Weekday pass starting at $99 that provides restricted weekday access (blackout dates: 12/27/21-12/31/21) at Brian Head only.

The My Weekday pass gives you the flexibility to ski on the weekdays that you choose and adjust your price accordingly. Choose up to 5 days per week between Monday and Friday to ski through the entire season for the same price as last year’s pass ($199, when you select five days), or select 1-5 days with passes starting as low as $99.

This has not yet been determined. At this point, we are not selling Power Packs.

Benefits

Last year, we offered several brand-new benefits on our season passes, including unlimited mountain bike uplifts for guests who purchased a Power Pass during the first sale. Life looked very different 12 months ago. In looking at the data, most guests who used the mountain bike uplift benefit used it 3 days or less. We’re very proud to offer 3 days at each of our bike parks (Purgatory, Brian Head and Pajarito) plus unlimited access through April 30, 2022 at the nation’s only year-round, lift served bike park, Spider Mountain.

No. Last year, we offered 2 FREE lift tickets as an incentive to purchase a Power Pass during our first sale period. This year, if you purchase a Power Pass by 5/21/21, you receive 3 FREE days of mountain bike uplifts at each of our bike parks: Purgatory, Brian Head and Pajarito. The Power Pass also comes with unlimited uplift access at Spider Mountain Bike Park.

In the past, season pass guests received six discounted lift tickets that were 30% off the window rate. With our resort no longer offering a window rate, we decided to provide passholders with the absolute best deal available: six discounted lift tickets that are 25% off the online rate. You can use this benefit for yourself or share it with family or friends.

Your six 25% off tickets are available on the online stores at Purgatory, Arizona Snowbowl, Sipapu, Pajarito, Nordic Valley, Brian Head and Spider Mountain. 

These discounts will be available for online redemption starting winter 2021/2022.

We are actively working on adding partner resorts as a benefit for our passholders. Please keep an eye out on the website for updated information! Value passes and FREE passes like Power Kids and Super Senior are not eligible for this benefit.

Payment Plan

All passes are eligible for our no-interest payment plan which allows you to evenly split your pass price over time. You’ll be charged for the initial payment at the time of purchase, followed by automatic payments on the 30th of each month through November 30, 2021 (or July 30, 2021 for summer passes). Learn more here.

No. There is no interest, finance charge, or any hidden fees.

No. In fact, your monthly payment could be less than the price of a lift ticket.

Yes. Enjoy all the benefits of being a season passholder while you’re paying for your pass.

This is an automatic monthly payment plan. The number of payments – and number of months – depends on when you purchase your season pass. All payments are complete on November 30. It’s important to purchase your pass by the 14th of the month to maximize the number of payments you have and lower your monthly payment. When you purchase the pass, you are charged for an initial payment. After that, you are charged on the 30th of every month until the pass is paid in full. 

How to count the payments: If the guest purchases before the 14th at midnight and selects the payment plan, you get two payments for that month. If the guest purchases anytime between the 15th and the end of the month, they are charged just once that month. Subsequent charges happen on the 30th. Cheat sheet: 9 payments before April 14, 8 payments before May 14…

Yes, you can update your credit card information online.

No. At this time, the payment plan is only an option to purchase season passes.

No. As long as you are regularly making the monthly payment, you can use your pass anytime. If you fall behind on your payments, your pass will be suspended. Payments that are declined may be charged a $20 administrative fee per incident.

Season Pass Refunds

A: Season passes are non-refundable unless the Season Pass Refund Option is selected at the time of purchase.

The Pass Refund Option provides coverage for your pass in specific situations. When this policy is in effect, you’re covered for up to 90% of the value of your pass if your situation fulfills the requirements outlined in the refund option terms and conditions. Government mandated closures such as the ones for COVID-19 are also covered. View full details here.
