Outdoor Sports Guide Magazine | Maximize Your Season Pass Perks

Winter is Coming

Ski season is almost here! If you usually buy a season pass to one or two of Utah’s many magnificent resorts, you know it includes as many vertical feet as you can handle, but your season pass also includes a bevy of other benefits such as skiing multiple days for free at partner resorts and steep discounts on food, lodging, and shopping.
Here’s what’s on the menu at some of Utah’s major ski resorts for the 2017/2018 ski and snowboard season:

Ski Utah

Gold Pass $4,900 // Silver Pass $3,150 For ballers and ballers-in-training who purchased the Gold Pass, remember it’s fully transferable and valid for 50 days at each of Utah’s 14 resorts, except Park City, where it’s good for 100 days of skiing—so share the wealth. The Silver Pass is non-transferable, but is valid for 30 days at all 14 resorts.
