ThunderChunky For once I'm happy to have my little 500 vert hill in New York. I have never waited in a lift line at my hill. I went at 9 on a weekday one time and there was only one boarder and a skier there for the entire resort until about 1.

deepakhj You can get the Epic Local pass for $519 which lifts the Saturday blackouts. It's only $139 more and comes with Keystone, Breck, and Abasin unlimited too.

Artoo_812018 Vail bought North* and Heavenly, not Sierra. Which sucks cuz that double whammy with Sierra and North* was dope...

North* isn't doing their Fast Passes anymore from the looks on their site and from word of mouth. Sierra still sells the Fast Passes. You can buy a season fast pass or one the day of if they have any left.

Well, yes obviously. I meant specifically, the details. Usage, restrictions, prices, how many of the express passes they sell etc.

CheeseForSteeze Doesn't Sierra have an express lane thing you can buy on your pass? How does that work? Maybe it's not Sierra, I remember reading someone at Tahoe offering an express pass.

Also, I thought Vail owned Northstar and Heavenly, not Sierra?

killclimbz Squaw is pretty nuts with people. The terrain is so much better though. Back in the day they were experts at getting the lifts loaded. They had a deal where you could pay extra on your lift ticket that you would get your money back if you waited longer than 10 minutes in a lift line. Free money for them. I never waited more than 10 minutes for any lift. Hopefully that trend continues to this day.

I either get there by 9am. Ride, but NEVER back down to the bottom until it's lunch time. Or get there by 11am and just call it a half day.
I was there in January on a Saturday and the wait almost everywhere was pretty ridiculous. The backside where I thought would be better even had a long wait.

Going to try squaw this year instead.

Donutz Cypress has something similar. As long as it's possible to buy a full-access pass, and as long as the rates are comparable to what they charge at other similar places (Not true at Cypress, unfortunately), I don't see a problem with it. It's no different than off-season or off-peak rates offered to try to spread out usage.

Unfortunately, in the local case, Cypress seems to think they're competing with Whistler and have priced themselves accordingly. Reality is they're competing with Grouse and Seymour and they're not that much better.
