They released the passes early this year..

The guest services girls laughed when I asked to buy one and got a high five from someone as excited as me.

Bring it on!!

Last season someone removed the letter C from the trail sign for Love Canal. I had to lol. Those mischievous pranksters.

Still a good deal if you consider that the winter pass is almost 3x as much, but the bike park is funner!

I think they were cheaper for the early bird special. I paid $249 + tax on April 28th for a 5-day pass.

Last year I clocked about 15 days. Looks like break-even is right around 15 days ($619 vs. $415 for 11 days + 4 days @ $49 = $611) so maybe I'll get a pass this year. Then again, I usually do an Elevation Camp which means lift tickets are only $30 for those two days and it would be nice to get out to Silver Star as well. Decisions decisions.

I agree the bike park pass is way better value than the ski pass. Long operating hours, generally shorter line-ups. My body is the limiting factor for getting in laps on the bike whereas I could easily ski more lift served powder if line-ups were not as long.

Any rumours on changes in the park this year? I assume Crank It Up More will open at some point. Creekside running all year? Seven Year War extended further?

I predict at least two threads regarding people standing in the trail/on lips and/or landings of jumps before the end of July.

IT's not a bad value at all. But, I would argue the fun in summer vs winter. As soon as one ends I start missing it….

Good days skiing I have a blast, but I never miss winter during the summer whereas any day the skiings not great I'm missing bikes, also way easier to find time to ride when you can ride something awesome in 90 minutes in the evening or whatever.
