Gore season pass / M.A.X. Pass

Gore adult unrestricted SKI3 season pass is $759 (until 8/11).  M.A.X. Pass add-on is $329.  Since we will be doing weekends and holidays at Gore, the MAX Pass (either alone or as an add-on) doesn't make sense for us.  But I can see the $679 MAX Pass making a lot of sense for frequent NY-area skiers without a home mountain.  Anyone here doing it?

I'm thinking real hard about getting the stand alone, one each for me and junior, maybe the 10 yr old as well. It's a lot if skiing for the money, makes a lot of sense for the EC.

Re: Gore season pass / M.A.X. Pass

I've had a Gore pass for a few years, but I got a Maxpass for next year.  it works for me because I split my season between Upstate NY and Colorado, and my son has a Rocky Mountain Super Pass, which has the Colorado Maxpass mountains.

After January 1 I'll qualify for a Gore senior pass, so maybe I'll get that if I burn through all my Gore/ Whiteface tickets.

I hope the Intrawest sale to KSL doesn't bust the Maxpass next year.

I dropped my Gore/Whiteface pass after 15 (ish) years straight (?). Our family of 4 is branching out and doing MAX pass only. We're at the point where the kids can ski other places and we're looking forward to trying new mountains and taking some trips. For me, and maybe this will change with Bone in charge, there's a certain frustration with Gore managerial decisions in regards to the mountain and how its run, where snow is blown, what is open/not open, etc. I may just be too close to it and need a break or I could be in one too many circles of jaded locals. Either way, we'll still get days at Gore and Whiteface, but also check out and enjoy plenty of other mountains. I see a trip to Tremblant and Big Sky on the horizon this season.

Re: Gore season pass / M.A.X. Pass

I did it last season and got good use from it - 17 days as it set up perfectly for where my son would be racing. I won't be doing it this year as it does not  fit his schedule.  I also got to Mt Bachelor which I'd highly recommend for a spring trip.  

Just a note that every Mt is different on how it works with max.  Some are direct to lift.  Others you need to go to any sales point.  Others require you to go to a specific office or sales counter.  My advice is find out ahead of your visit.  You could end up at a base area and find out that they only redeem max at a different base lodge - it happened to me more than once.  Usually you also have to go back each morning as the system won't allow multi day redemptions nor the afternoon or night before like with other lift tix purchases.  There software I'm told is a bit sketchy and slow and doesn't mesh well with all lift ticket systems.

Same.

Looking forward to early and late season at Killington, 5 days at Gore, 5 days at WF, Sunday trips to Stratton or Okemo or Pico, a trip to Maine to return to Sugarloaf, going out to Created Butte to see a buddy, and an epic Kicking Horse/Fernie Trip sometime in March.

Will be a fun year of branching out.

Let me know before you do that.  I know someone who lives in Fernie and lived in Golden.  I can ask him for intel.

Re: Gore season pass / M.A.X. Pass

The Max is pretty much a no brainer if you can travel just a little. Ten days in SLC, five in Big Sky, and don't forget Steamboat. I'm hitting Maine this year for the first time. If only there was a Maxpass for hotels.

Sometime I wish there was a MaxPass for life.

Re: Gore season pass / M.A.X. Pass

For future reference, the MAX Pass prices went up $50 on 10/10/17 for the 2017-18 season.  Now $729 for adults but still a decent deal for someone who can get in 12+ days, especially if planning a ski vacation to Big Sky or Steamboat or Crested Butte for 5 days of skiing. Or any one of the northeast locations where it's hard to find a lift ticket for <$90/day.

The Add-on price,teen and youth prices went up $50 too.
