Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

3 Valleys don't seem to have published their prices yet. Should be good for a laugh / bank loan, but assume they'll be similar to EK.

To be honest though, all season passes are great value for those of us fortunate enough to be able to make use of them. I reckon most ski areas make a lot more money selling 6 day passes to the holidaymakers who have just one week a season to enjoy.

The Mont Blanc Unlimited price doesn't tally with the email I've got from them which says €803 discounted until 16/10/16, €844 till 30/11/16, then 1071 after that. That's for an annual pass, not just a season.

The Chamonix Le Pass is €618/660/706.

It's possible that my email is aimed at residents or previous pass holders, but it doesn't explicitly say that anywhere... www.compagniedumontblanc.fr/fr/forfaits/club-prive

Also note that the MBU isn't just days in Courmayeur & Evasion Mont Blanc, its unlimited access/all you can eat.

@Chamcham, The Grand Massif is showing as giving 1 day in Les Deux Alpes, 1 day in Les Menuires plus 3 days in your choice of 3 different Haute Savoie resorts. No list shown for the Haute Savoie ones, but last year it was a great long list. In addition there are the extras that @Zorrac mentioned.

@BFG_Skier, I don't think that there is a discount for buying the season pass early. We get discount for being local residents and for being old but I am sure the early bird discount is for one week or two week passes.

Thanks for the correction, on second viewing of the site you are right. I got the discount a few years ago but then I went out and got it early, I think all they seemed to want then was a photo. They probably have tightened up these days.

@Chamcham, You are incorrect about the GM pass. It does have extras. A few discounts I have never used and a number of free days in other resorts which I have. The resorts vary slightly each year but always include Morzine area and Praz de Lys (good during holidays and other peak days.) both approx 30 mins from Samoens and Verbier. Obviously it easier to use any of the frees days if you have a car.

Resurrection Alert>>>>

Midsummers day, beautiful sunshine and I've just had an early purchase bargain from an area I've previously bought a season pass in.

Valloire (& Valmeinier): €305 valid from 1st July until 30 September then it steps up to €450 then €702 from 1st December. Not bad for 150km, nice town.

As it is I've already bought a MagicPass which is currently CHF459.

It's a great deal, but the Eskimo pass (La Norma/Valfrejus/Val Cenis/Aussois/Bonneval) is a similar price with double the amount of kms.

+1. Spain has no mainstream "culture of skiing" despite being peppered with ski areas in modern times, and the prices are generally uncompetitive. The French Pyrenees, in contrast, can be very cheap. Oh for a Pyrenean Epic Pass Exclamation

Grandvalira in Andorra (now with added Arcalís goodness) is decently prices at about 650 until mid December.

Grand Massif prices out already for next season:

Forfait Saison Hiver Grand Massif Adulte (18 ans et + )
489 €* au lieu de 978 €

Forfait Saison Hiver Grand Massif Enfant (5 à 17 ans)
289 €* au lieu de 578 €

* Ces tarifs privilèges sont valables jusqu'au 10/12/2019 minuit.

summer and insurance can be added as well

https://hiver.lescarroz.com/domaine-skiable/les-forfaits-de-ski/forfaits-saison.html

If you have 16 and 17 year old teenagers, then on the standard daily/weekly pass they have to buy an adult pass, but with a season pass they are still kids, so its cheaper with an early purchased season pass if you intend to ski 7 days or more

New Freizeitticket prices aren't out yet, but last year was €488.

That got you 18 ski resorts (plus a few single lift kids training slopes), 10 months of skiing on Stubai glaclier, free use of lifts in the same resorts for hiking and MTB all summer, and free access to a bunch of swimming lakes and pools.

Interestingly, it's now called Freizeitticket Tirol, not Innsbruck, so may now be available to more people.

Depends very much on what type of skiing you do/want to do. I'm biased because I do a lot of off-piste, couloirs & touring as well as piste skiing, but the EK offers by far the greatest range of all types of skiing, and one of the longest seasons in the world. 25% discount if purchased up to the day before lifts open on 30th November, €1035 as mentioned above.
