I'm not sure why anyone would pay to ski at Breck in the first place...even if they had the Epic / Epic local pass. Especially when you can get a TWO-season pass to A-basin right up the road for $499, or Copper for $399.

The Epic Pass is such a good deal - I don't know why anyone would wait till now to buy a pass when the Epic Pass is so much cheaper in advance.

Highest place I know of for season passes is Killington, who charges $1350 for unlimited skiing for a season.

Aspen was $1599 this year if you bought before September 15. $1959 now.

So pleas'd at first the towering Alps we try,
Mount o'er the vales, and seem to tread the sky,
Th' increasing prospects tire our wand'ring eyes,
Hills peep o'er hills, and Alps on Alps arise!

Still not as high as the people who pay for one of them. That's just absurd.

gotta remember that is 4 mtns though, aspen/highlands/snowmass/buttermilk which highlands alone beats any of the vail pass resorts. T-ride and CB are both over 1k even if you got them early.

Right now none of those ski areas are worth skiing at all and won't be for a while. Window ticket prices should be proportional to the amount of terrain open or on a scale related to it. Who the hell is gonna pay $100 a day (window price) to ski 2% of Vail. I mean, just the fact that a ski area has the audacity to charge their full price for only a fraction of their facilities and terrain is immoral at best.

If they undercut the daily lift ticket price they are ripping off their season pass holders. It is no different charging full price for their limited terrain than the Rockies charging full price to attend a baseball game this past year.

The EPIC pass at less than $700 is actually a very good deal and IMHO the best deal in skiing.

At least in the baseball game you get the 9 innings. Imagine paying for the ticket and only getting one.

I'd say the Rockies only gave about 80% this year, so the comparison of their season ticket holders with Epic Pass holders is appropriate.
