Stevens Pass sucks

So how many of you midweek pass holders were told they had to buy a ticket during this peak week ? I know I seen three other guys in the lodge trying to figure out why our passes weren't working, which in the past 25 years we were able to use during Xmas break.

In typical Stevens fashion they once again have taken more midweek/select pass privileges away, we used to get free ski check, we used to be able to ride Saturday and Sunday night, then that was changed to Sunday night only and now our passes are not good to use during peak week and they'll gladly give you a day pass ($74) at a $5 discount big f'ing deal.

Wow, that's a shitty way to treat passholders. Do they have a tiered pass system where "gold" passes or something doesn't have blackouts?

They have a Select Pass and a Premium Pass.

According to their website, Premium is good for anytime they are open, and Select is good for every off-peak day and every night after 4 pm. Looks like you should be able to ride Saturday nights.

This sucks I was going to head up tomorrow and possibly next Monday which is another day we would have to pay. I guess I'll change plans and go to Baker. This along with the fact they are only open 10 days in April (Fri-Sun) also pisses me off.
I see there a few other mid week days in Jan/Feb we would also have to pay. While I'm bitching they could also use another lift or two and some more parking, which sucks big time on weekends.

Speaking of expanding, what the hell ever happened to their big lift and lodge expansion, years ago they had a plan on their website that showed 2-3 new chairs, one on the backside, one starting at the overnight parking lot (moving the RV's across the street), another chair east of the terrain park and finally a lodge at the top of the Barrier chair ?

What up Stevens ? I believe that project was to be completed in 2017 (which seemed like a decade ago when they first announced it) and they haven't even started.

Your best bet is BAKER, Duncan and the Howets know how to run a resort.

That blows. But thank you for posting.

I would've gone up tomorrow and repeated your experience. Shitty pass it is!

between that and the removal of the advantage pass, they are doing their best to increase profits because demand is high. I'm just glad they didn't expand parking.

You hit the nail on the head redlude97, as I stated in an email/complaint I sent them today stating that "it must be nice to run a business that you can piss people off, but they keep coming back for the love of the sport and not the Stevens Pass Experience"

There are two more days that your Midweek pass won't work on, one is MLK Day Jan 16th and Presidents' Day Feb 20th
