Next Season's Power Pass Expands Options, Flexibility
The first tier of pricing is out for next season's Power Pass, and the Southwest Rockies regional season ticket has enticements to buy early, a new limited-ticket pass, plus accommodations due to the uncertainty of the coronavirus.
May 29 is the first deadline for purchases of the Power Pass -- the brainchild of James Coleman and Mountain Capital Partners who started out by buying Purgatory in 2012.
Marketers have sweetened the pot for the preseason Power Pass with two free buddy passes, a refund option for certain personal conditions, a guarantee of being open at least 100 days next season, or get a discount on the 2021-2022 pass, and free shipping.
Once the May 29 deadline is passed, purchasers will have to pay a 5.5% surcharge if they want the refund/insurance program, and all must pony up for the shipping charges.
New in the regional pass portfolio is the Power Pass Select, which has 12 unrestricted days shared between Purgatory and Arizona Snowbowl, and unlimited access to the rest of Mountain Capital's conglomerate.
There's also the Power Pack -- discounted tickets for 3-5 non-holidays at Purg. Kids under 10 ski and ride free at all Mountain Capital Resorts. And, some passes open up summer activities at Purgatory without charge.
Now entering its ninth season, the multi-resort season Power Pass gives unlimited skiing and riding at MCP-owned mountains – Purgatory, Arizona Snowbowl, Ski Hesperus, Pajarito, Sipapu, Brian Head and Nordic Valley. Each season, pass marketers have added partner resorts where the Power Pass means a limited number of days at resorts across the U.S., Canada, and Europe.
