Default Whitetail Resort

Season passes and Advantage Cards are on sale now You kno what that means. Winter is coming... This will be my first full season and I'll probably be getting the Advantage card this time with the wife. Thought long and hard about a pass, but doubt we would both use it enough to make it worth it. We need to use the Advantage about 20x to equal the passes value. This will be a test year to see how much we go. Can't wait! Anyone else going here or Liberty / Roundtop?

Your math is off...

You get a 40% off each time you buy a lift ticket and the 6th visit is free.

You pretty much make your money back at that point. I'm not too sure how you're coming up with the 20+ number.

Pretty sure OP is saying advantage card + 20 days would be what he needs to = a season pass. I'd do the advantage card too, full pass to those resorts isn't worth it.

That's really the only option we have that's decent without a long drive. And yes, that's what I was saying. I've been over the numbers a lot. Two season passes at $469 and 369 each is $838 for two of us. For $159 pass, we have a long way to get to that number. I think it was between 18 to 20 visits to get to the two pass equivalent. I'm talking weekends mostly and the occasional weekday maybe during the season. If it was just me, then the pass may be the better option at $469.

Ah...my bad on that part. Reading comprehension fail.

For Whitetail/Liberty/Roundtop get the Advantage Pass. Another option to look into is also getting the Night Club Card with the Advantage Pass as an option.

It'll be good for one free lift ticket after 4PM to close every weekday and 3PM to close on a weekend day. This is what I would do. I would get a discounted 4 hour lift ticket at around $35 and then once 3-4PM rolls around, I would go back to the window and get the NCC ticket. Pretty much gives you a full all day ticket for $35.


If you want to get a season pass, message me. I'm putting together a group through my company for group season passes. Passes would end up being discounted and you'd be purchasing the passes directly from whitetail.

Just curious, but what do the group rates typically run for a season pass? I still think we are going for the Advantage Card just to try the first season. Being an hour away from Whitetail, we aren't sure if this will be weekend only time or if we will make it more. Liberty is about 1.5 hours and Roundtop is about 2 hrs from us. I'm in Winchester, VA.

My math shows if you and your wife go more than 9 times a season pass would be cheaper and if less than 9 times the advantage card is cheaper. The thing to remember as well is if you have a season pass that doesn't require you to spend $80 every time you go, you will be more inclined to go because you can just walk up to the lift and ride whenever you want. Cash out of pocket each time can deter you from going. So I'm saying it would be easy to get 10+ days and most likely get you around 20+ days with a season pass. Especially if you are new and have a lot to learn, a small mountain is still really fun when new.

Normally they don't do group buys for season passes which is what the sales person says, so she's talking to her manager to get the final numbers to us. I'll let you guys know in case someone is interested. Need about 15 people (I think I have about that much in terms of interest within my company and group of friends).

Just got my pass usually haunt liberty cause whitetail has no bar. And unless you board twice a week season pass usually doesn't make sense.

See, that's where it gets tricky. I don't think she will go more than 5-6 times with me and ski, but she may surprise me. She may lose interest after a couple times. That would leave me with more trips. That's why I'm feeling it out this year first to see how much we can physically make it up there with weather and such. If I paid over $800+ out at the beginning for 2 passes, I feel I may not make that back if she loses interest. At $159 and a few discounts, we ended up at break even.
