I got my notification and order forms for the
annual Ski Council passes yesterday. Anyone looking to ski in
Canada this winter should check these out, as the prices are
unbeatable. However, they sell out super quick, as you'll see below.
As a plus, the passes are tax deductable as a charatible
1. There are five levels of passes, although
Level #1 ("The Whistler Pass") is sold out every year before the passes even get
to the general public <darn>
2. Passes are sold in books of 20 tickets (#5
is sold as a 15 ticket book), good every day of the season in the areas as
#2: Every area in Canada except
$40 CDN/ticket (~$26 USD)
#3: Every area in Canada
$28 CDN/ticket (~$18 USD)
#4: Over 100 areas including Whitewater,
Castle, Le Massif, Stoneham, Orford, Owl's Head etc.
$23 CDN/ticket (~$15 USD)
#5: Over 60 more remote or smaller
$17 CDN/ticket (~$11 USD)
The best deals I think are the $23 or $28 packages,
although the former does not include Sutton for use at Swampfest III. When
you think about it, anytime you can get a twenty ticket flex pass for
$300USD its a steal. The only catch is that these things have to be
ordered, like NOW, or at least by August 15.
Its just a thought, but if we
travelled to Kicking Horse Resort and/or Panorama in BC (ie: rather
than Whistler), we could ski for $18USD/day)..........and Calgary may be
cheaper airfare than Vancouver.............
