Mountains that don’t get it yet will have to very soon
Jay and Smuggs did announce season pass prices. Smuggs is only $299 for people 26 and under, while those 35-69 pay $549. I understand that many people like high-speed lift infrastructure and vertical at places like Stratton, but if you've ever been there on the weekend or Presidents' week, you know how packed the slopes can get. Bromley and Magic give you more breathing room, and in my opinion feel more homey and less sterile than Stratton. I do think there is a market that is willing to pay a bit more for the atmosphere and space.
Windham I know wants to be seen as more spacious and upscale, but I agree there pass prices are exorbitant. They still do have lift ticket discounts in ski shop coupon books and for ski councils, something I feel will go away at the Peak resorts.
