If you are like me, you are trying to determine whether you missed out on the lowest prices of the season at
Vail Park City Mountain Resort. Vail’s marketing said May 30 was the day to lock in the lowest prices of the season.
It is now, May 31st. Well, at least for the Epic Local’s Pass, today’s price is the same as yesterday’s price. You may have missed out on a Buddy Pass or two, but your annual rate didn’t change today. Hallelujah, I suppose.
In reality, many of us are trying to decide whether we want to pony up to pay Deer Valley prices next year. Most would say that Alterra didn’t screw up their local resort as much as Vail did. However, what to buy is a question you can only answer for yourself.
That said, I will say that Snow Basin, only an hour away, has been fabulous every time I have visited before March 1st. Check it out.
So, what are you going to do next year?
The good news is you can still buy a Vail local for $626. The bad news is that Deer Valley costs four times as much… but you get what you pay for.
