Resorts with a pay by use pass?

Note to self, remember the issue about value for money passes Shocked Laughing Currently in the Alps, Paradiski, wanting to do the occasional run but not at the prices aimed at full on skiers! Off to Val D Isere tomorrow at least I think they have a few free lifts.

Must explore some of the above possibilities for next year!

Pila (Aosta, Italy) offers a number of lift pass options (far too many, IMV). Anyway, in one of them you buy a number of points and then spend them on lifts - a little lift is two points whilst a big chair is six. This would be expensive for doing laps but might suit you well:

Silvretta MOntafon has an 'hour pass.' Costs €50, and you get a refund when you go back. So if you only ski for two hours, you get €22 or something back. If you do 5 hours, then you're cheaper buying a day pass.


Arlberg do the same, and also a points pass but it's only valid on certain beginner lifts (in Anton, the button lifts at the bottom and Fangbahn).

The pass that admin organises for Livigno is on a 'points per lift' basis.

My wife used the aforementioned Dolomiti "debit card" passes last season. She is a fair weather skier and does not like low vis or crud so often skis a half day. We spent 6 weeks in the Dolomites and over 25 days skiing she spent about €700 on passes, versus €825 for my season pass which I used for 45 days.

So, it's cost effective for less than about 3 hours leisurely skiing, above that buy a day pass. It is also a bit of a pain using up the last 20 odd points, there is a way of swiping the remaining old card and new card together but she often needed the lifties help.

Paradiski do a 'pay by use' pass. We decided to use this year rather than buying a pass, think you pay 20euros upfront and then 29euro's per day

In Poland virtually all offer a points option, but most of the runs are fairly short!

Really? How n earth do you find out about that? I have searched high and low through the lift pass options over a number of years and not found anything like that

It seems that the large French resort s these days do not want the custom of fair weather, couple of hours skiing here and there customers

I do appreciate all the information on here, thank you to everyone taking the time to reply.

Obertauern in Austria also does a points card

I think almost everywhere does a points pass. Certainly Les Saisies does. But big chairlifts take a lot of points! Excellent for beginners using short drags though.

It's more to set it up as that was a special offer but is still from €29 a day for la plagne

Hemsedal in Norway does a 3-lift pass for not much money. It's not advertised online, only in the shops where the passes are sold. Probably a bit far from where the OP is to be useful though.

Also worth noting that this year's Samedijeski in Paradiski is now all online -no vouchers, you either need to already have a card from last year (or The TO if arriving /handed out early) to charge, or you can order to pick up at a kiosk.

Ready immediately, I did ours on leaving our Bsm hotel and walked straight onto the Funi.

was in zillertal area last week (skied kaltenbach), you can get reduced daily lift passes depending on the time of day you start, so effectively you could get the gondola up at lunchtime and do a few runs whilst having a drink/lunch on the sun terrace if you want.

Not 100% sure but I think the maximum discount was about 15-20 euros on a 50 euro day pass.
