Idaho Resorts Couple Free Skiing, Riding This Spring With Next Season’s Passes
With a solid snowfall this season, at least seven Idaho resorts aim to keep the momentum going by digging deep discounts out of cost of a 2014-2015 season pass.
Marketers at several of these mountains in the Gem State also link the purchase of next season’s pass with free skiing for the rest of this season. Similar discounts are reflected in the prices for children, youth, seniors and other groups.
Here’s a look at the latest offers:
Tamarack. For $249 by March 30, an existing adult pass holder gets the rest of this season free and one free buddy ticket for 2014-2015. A new pass holder gets rest of season free and next year’s pass for $279. Prices goes up on March 30, Aug. 30 and Dec. 11.
Silver Mountain. Adult season passes go for $289 and youngsters for $199. Free skiing and snowboarding for the rest of this season, four day pass to Silver Rapids Waterpark, or ski lift discounts for a friend.
Schweitzer. A $99 outlay gets skiing through the end of this season, and the amount can be applied to next year’s season tickets, which are $649 for adults through May 31 for adults 26 and older.
Pebble Creek. The purchase of a 2014-2015 season pass means free skiing or riding through the end of March. Adult pass costs $279 through April 30, then $329 through July 31.
Kelly Canyon. The cost of a 2014-2015 adult season pass is $259 season pass until April 30, then $359 to Aug. 30. The Boise town hill is closed for this season.
Brundage. The purchaser of a $379 season pass for 2014-2015 by April 30 can ski or ride for free until the resort closes this year. Price rises to the sticker price of $529 after that.
Bogus Basin. Any adult who gets to the resort’s ticket window or online site before March 31 pays $249 for next season’s pass – and free skiing and snowboarding for the rest of this season. After that, cost goes up to $299.
