I hear you, that would be amazing!

But to be fair to the industry, you're not really describing a subscription when you say one month at a place. It's like asking for a subscription to Sports Illustrated but only for the single swimsuit issue.

And on the flip side it's kind of BS for Loon to consider it a monthly subscription when it's a minimum of 12 months per year! That's just an annual pass.

The typical subscription model based on other industries would be something like: A ski area gives you X number of Tix per month. You can use them whenever you want that month. They win because they garuntee sales of X tix per month. And you win if you use all X tix every month at that good subscription price.

I won't go through all the pricing tiers, but the Boyne NEP flash sale pricing for next week is out and some new stuff.

Plantinum Pass: $1549 adult

          Sounds like a lot but it takes last year's Gold Plus and supercharges it with Sunday and Holiday early lift access at all 3 resorts (last year you could only use this benefit at the resort you bought the pass from) and it includes an Ikon Base Pass!  Now, it sounds like you have to take the Ikon Base it comes with, no option to upgrade that to a Base + or Full after.  You also cannot use Ikon Base days at Loon/SR/SL (sounds a bit like Max add on).  You still get the Boyne Western area benefits too, so 3 free non blacked out days at Big Sky, Brighton, Snowqualmie.  So you really get 8 free days at each now.

At the lower end they added Unlimited and Limited New England 5 day passes for $369/299.  This gives you 5 days total at the three either unrestricted or blackout days.

Gold Plus is gone, replaced by Platinum.  The rest are back including the Nitro, with a bot of price creep up again.

 

As a note, it sounds like Powdr is doing a similar Ikon Base deal at Killington, but they have tied that only to their Beast365 subscription package.  I believe that is a bit less than the NEP Platinum and given the summer K access on it, may be an even better deal.

Pats Peak is out....I added to the first post

https://www.patspeak.com/Shop/Season-Passes.aspx
I was just looking at this and it really pisses me off the the 6-18 yo pass is $80 less than an Adult but the 18-29 is almost $250 less than the adult and $165 less than the youth pass. Why not make the rang 6-29! And how is if fair that a 27 year old parent of a 6 yo pays less for his pass then his kid.

Not gonna list Bretton Woods whole season pass menu.  Just wanted to point out that they do one thing totally different then any other mtn I've ever seen...a HUGE age range for their "non-adult" ticket. 

Adult (30-64) = $839

No-Regrets (5-29) = $399.  

 I guess "no regrets" refers to not regretting having kids because you have to pay for their pass until they are 29 years old!?!?

Hey, if it's a B-Day or Christmas present every year...

Have mountains done away with "Junior" tickets aged 6-17ish?

Yeah, that's nuts, the two prices should be reversed.

Sugarloaf has been added to the Mountain Collective (along with Grande Targee and Panorama).  In addition, the Platinum and Gold New England Pass levels now also include an unlimited 50% at Mountain Collective resorts.

Magic lowering their passes for next year due to Covid

We will be extending the Early Bird sales period by a month  starting on April 15 and lasting until June 15. We want to give people extra time to take advantage of these deep discounts and make sure all these congressional stimulus provisions for workers and families are delivered to help everyone sort through their finances.

Given the new economic consequences of this pandemic, we feel we should also look at ways to make these early pass purchases even more affordable as possible. As a small business, we are taking a hit with the season closing early, and now more than ever, need season pass purchases to carry us through our off-season maintenance and improvements. So together, if you help us and we help you, we can get through this and come out even better as a ski community. So look not only for NO price increases on passes but expect an announcement on April 15th of LOWER prices on many passes compared to last year's Early Bird prices as part of Magic's response to COVID-19 and its impact on family finances this spring. Look also for a new family pass option which will help larger families save even more!

Interesting twist from Loon/Boyne. Lots of people are concerned about the extent of operations next season. There's been a lot of grey area in what will count as a "season". Loon has come out with an explicit definition and garuntee....

"We commit to being open for at least 150 days of skiing this winter. If for any reason our season is shortened, you’ll be given a credit toward a season pass for the following winter. Additionally, we’re giving you the option to roll over the value of your 2020/21 pass toward a 2021/22 pass through December 10, 2020."

Cannonballer, just realize the 150 day season is across all 3 resorts, not just Loon.  So if Loon only hits 130 days, but SR or SL hit 150, that is a "full season" and no pass discount the following.  The other note of interest is for Platinum Passholders and the Dec. 10th cutoff to push funds to 21-22.  It has to be an unused NEP and in the case of the Platinum, the Ikon Base also has to be unused to push the Platinum funds forward.

 

Still, I didn't need anything beyond them saying that yes, we'll push your pass value forward if we can't open for 20-21.  This is great to me because I want to ski and they are offering that option and guarenteeing it for a deceent length or $$ off in 21-22.  And a discount now.  More than I wanted but very nice indeed.

Sounds like that isn't true.  This just came from Loon...

"Just like years before, we remain optimistic that Mother Nature will deliver deep snow and prime snowmaking temperatures allowing us to ski and ride from mid-November through mid-April, keeping our promise of 150 days of skiing and riding.

Collectively, with our sister resorts, we have decided to keep New England Pass off sale. Loon, Sunday River and Sugarloaf will move forward offering pass products that allow each of us to best address the uncertainty and complications that COVID-19 presents. Loon's season pass products will be on sale after Labor Day."

It was back when they started that guarantee.  Now that they are splitting Loon away from SR/SL for the next round of pass products, guess they had to do something for the Loon only folks who buy those after Labor Day.  SR & SL dropped the Maine Passes today, Gold/Silver/Bronze levels that match the benefits of those levels of the NEP EXCEPT NO LOON Access.  And they are pricey at 1399/899/649 for the three levels.  There are Maine Pass 4 days available, both unrestricted and restricted at 349/279 and the nice thing on those is they are good during 20/21 as well as 21/22.  Probably the better offer right now up there. 

NOTE:  If you bought an NEP BEFORE they went off sale on June 15, they are still valid at all three resorts this coming season.

This is interesting. What drove Boyne's decision here?

This is purely a guess, but it seems likely that it's driven by their resorts being in different states.  Boyne probably doesn't want to be at the whim of state policies.  For example, if ME were to go into a hard lockdown that could drive an excessive amount of passholders to Loon.  Could also result in complaints from passholders, locals, etc about how things play out.  Or various other similar scenarios.  Keeping their resorts independant allows them to adapt more specifically.
