M.A.X. Pass

Has anyone here ever bought/use the MAX Pass?  With Killington, Pico, Stratton, Okemo, Loon, ect., no blackouts, it looks perfect if you want to ski different mountains during the season.

Re: M.A.X. Pass

I bought one this year.  I have only used it for 4 days at Killington so far but have 12 days planned for the rest of the season.

Easy to justify for anyone in the northeast who wants to do a trip to Big Sky.  Or anyone who can use a season pass that qualifies for the $250 upgrade to the MAX Pass.

Re: M.A.X. Pass

MAX Pass pricing going up a little for 2017-18.  But those who drive from NYC/NJ to the Catskills and ORDA mountains may want to pay attention. The ORDA mountains and Windham are being added.  Presumably still get 5 days at each location.  Anyone thinking of a trip to Big Sky?  After five days at Big Sky, any days at other MAX Pass locations will be "free."

Teaser on MAX Pass FB page:

"Are you all ready? Here's our announcement for 17/18 passes. Passes will go on sale on Tuesday, March 14. $629 for adults with a $49 down payment option and $329 for the adult add-on pass.

We are now at 44 mountains with the addition of Gore, Belleayre, Whiteface, Windham, Lutsen and Granite Peak."

Re: M.A.X. Pass

I see the Facebook post, but can't link to it because they've attached it to some random Loon Mountain conditions report.

The MAX Pass was based on an idea that Intrawest had for a season or two called the Passport.  Then Boyne and Powdr joined and created the MAX Pass for 2015-16.  The big jump in adding other places came last season.  Perhaps the addition of Stowe to the MCP was a factor.  Now Stowe will be on the Epic Pass and Sugarbush is in the MCP.  That has to change the thinking a bit for managers of bigger mountains in the northeast that draw along I-95 from DC and other metropolitan areas to the north.

Note that there is still incentive to buy a season pass for one of the MAX Pass locations for someone who has a favorite mountain but wants to do a little exploring.  Usually only a premium season pass qualifies for the Add-on.  Doesn't take many ski days in the northeast to get value for an additional $329.

Think I'll be jumping on this for next year. I ski Killington normally at least 5 days a season, if not for early and late season turns. With Gore and WF on the pass makes it worth while, plus the ability to get in some days out West.

I see on the FB page in the comments they replied "Stay Tuned"  to someone regarding comments that no other big name mountains were being added such as Sugarbush...Man if they added them that would really sweeten the deal, at least for me. Still is a great deal without it though
