Pass It On

Skiing out of Salt Lake gets easier

By: Janeen Christoff

After a year of record snowfall in the 2004-2005 season, Salt Lake resorts are making it easier and more affordable to hit the slopes this winter with a multi-area lift voucher called the Ski Salt Lake Super Pass.

Now in its fourth season, the pass offers clients the ability to ski at multiple Salt Lake-area resorts for less money than an individual lift pass. Super Pass rates for this season are $46 and include transportation to and from the slopes from Salt Lake City.

New for the 2005-2006 season, Super Passes are available as a multi-use card. These cards can be loaded with one to five days of skiing and are valid for a seven-day period. This gives clients the value of multi-day ticketing that was previously unavailable.

“The average window rate at the four Salt Lake resorts is $52.35. And with bus fare included, a day without a Super Pass runs about $59.25, so it’s a terrific value, especially when you add up a week’s worth of skiing,” said Eric Thompson, director of winter sports tourism for the Salt Lake Convention and Visitors Bureau.

Agents can sell passes by contacting the bureau. Once they have log-on information, a Super Pass can be printed or a voucher can be e-mailed directly to clients who can then print the pass. Printed vouchers can be redeemed at any ticket window at the four participating resorts; Alta Ski Area, Brighton Resort, Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort and Solitude Mountain Resort. Passes are the same rate year-round with no blackout dates.
