Buying Season tickets on line

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hi
Some help needed please. We are about to buy our first season tickets on line, and have a few questions, which I'm sure someone can help with. Will we need photos for the ski card, and if so will we be able to scan them in? How can we pay, card, pay pal, sterling, euros? Is there a benefit Code to enter? Is it better to buy the Carte Neige separately? Sorry if these seem easy questions, but we don't want to start the process on line and then realise we need something else!
Thanks

Not sure which resort you're referring to, but I buy my Chatel season pass online, and it gives me an option to upload a digital photo of myself. Can't help answer your question regarding payment - although generally it's best to pay in local currency. if you don't have a local bank account then suggest you take a look at WeSwap.com which will let you exchange for Euros (and other currencies) at mid market rates and you can then treat it like having a local bank account for debit card transactions and cash withdrawals.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

In the past I’ve bought Serre Chevalier and Salzburgerland season passes online. Both required you to upload a digital photo and I just paid by credit card. With the SC one I also opted for carte neige, assuming it would be better value. The passes arrived a few weeks later. There’s nothing better, to get you fired up for the new season, than your pass landing on the doormat!

@ChrissyK,
It can all depend on which ski area you are looking at.

You will need a photo, but a selfie from your phone is fine. If you pull a funny face in it, the lifties will laugh and smile at you when you use the turnstyles.
Paying by card is easiest but some compagnies may let you pay by Paypal
Discounts on lift passes exist if you will be working in the resorts or live in the resort, sometimes if you are just an owner too. If you are going to work and have a job sorted, you can scan the employment contract in or just take some phone photos and upload in the section for discounted passes. You will need to do this before you go near the main buying page. You will then normally get sent a log-in for buying options with extra discounts. If you don't have a job or don't have your contract, you can still buy at the discounted seasonaire price when you arrive in the village and have your papers. Just go to the lift company office.
Defo buy Carre Niege with the pass. It's more expensive and aggro to buy from the Club des Sports.

If the page for discounted passes isn't obvious, drop the lift company an email. they all have people that speak perfect English, or you can use Google translate if your French (or Austrian) isn't very good.

Hello Morgan W,
I am interested that you say you buy your Chatel season pass on line as when I tried I was told that I had to send the lady in the office my original lift pass which she would recharge ( or something ) and then return to me by post. All very well unless it gets lost in Xmas post so I would be grateful for your advise please as you may have overcome this ?

You can upload your photo when buying paradiski season pass. I normally pay with credit card. No code needed, 20% off discount price is given if you buy before end of November. It is easier to add Carte Neige at same time.

+1 to codgers comments, also the staff that handle online ticket sales in BsM speak excellent english. The web site is a bit amazing to fill in, discount period is well advertised.
