Powderhorn Season Passes
The Powderhorn season passes are quite good, as far as single resort passes. If their day rates are similar to the 2014-2015 ski season, which was $61/day (the cheapest in the state), then it will take fewer than 10 days to be skiing cheaper than everyone else. That is, if you buy now. The prices listed below are only good through April 30. And they will certainly go up after that and incrementally increase every month up through the start of next season. Powderhorn takes very good care of their locals and now is the time to get in while it is as cheap as possible.
Midweek Powderhorn Season Passes – Ski Monday through Friday
Unless you work some job where you can only ski on the weekdays, I can’t imagine this pass will make much sense for anyone, but they do offer it. Classic anchoring technique to get more perceived value from the full season pass. Keep in mind there are a few blackout dates for this pass, such as Dec 24- Jan 1, Jan 18, and Feb 15.
There will be a little addition to the midweek pass this year. If you want to ski weekends or blackout dates, you do not have to go to the lift ticket office. Once your pass is scanned, you will be charged for a full day rate, which means you need to have a credit/debit card on file. This isn’t much of a bonus, but will save a little time/hassle. Shame they don’t at least give you a little discount for being a passholder.
Other Powderhorn Season Passes
Powderhorn also offers family passes, P-Cards, DECA Packs, and “Learn to Ski & Ride Program” passes. We weren’t 100% sure how all of these worked or their prices, but we will update the site as soon as we find out. For now, just know there are other options if the above passes aren’t quite doing it for you.
