Answers to Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)


2022/2023 Season Passes

How can I use my Power Pass, the Power Pass Select or Power Pass Local?

These products sound the same, but their benefits are different: the Power Pass comes with unlimited access to Nordic Valley and all of our mountains: no blackout dates! If you purchase this pass by 5/21/22, you receive 3 FREE days of mountain bike uplifts at each of our bike parks: Purgatory, Brian Head and Pajarito (in addition to the unlimited access at Spider Mountain through 4/30/23).


The Power Pass Select offers unlimited access to Nordic Valley, Brain Head, Pajarito, Sipapu, Hesperus and Spider Mountain plus 12 shared days between Purgatory and Arizona Snowbowl (blackout dates: 12/26/22 – 1/1/23, 1/14/23-1/15/23, 2/18/23-2/19/23) at a lower price point than the Power Pass. The Power Pass Core offers restricted access at Nordic Valley (blackout dates: 12/26/22-12/30/22, 1/14/23-1/15/23, 2/18/23-2/19/23) and unlimited access to Sipapu, Pajarito and Hesperus. This pass also includes 5 shared weekdays between Purgatory, Arizona Snowbowl, Brian Head and Spider Mountain (blackout dates: 12/26/22-1/1/23).


All of these passes come with six 25% off discounted online lift tickets and the Power Pass and Power Pass Select offer 10% off on-mountain services, including food and beverage, ski school and rentals.

Why should I buy a season pass if lift tickets can be so low?

A season pass remains the best value for anyone who will ski at least 6 days. Power Pass resorts have not required reservations for passholders, which means you have the freedom to ski whenever you want. Plus, a pass means you don’t have to hand-pick your dates and lock them early for a low rate. Don’t forget: when you use our no-interest payment plan, your monthly payments may be less than the cost of a single lift ticket.

What happened to the Power Pass Local?

The Power Pass Core was formerly known as the Power Pass Local. This pass now comes with fewer Nordic Valley blackout dates and new benefits! Learn more.

How to use your current 2021/2022 card for the 2022/2023 winter season?

When you renew your season pass, you can re-use that same card next winter – no need to print a new one!


2022/2023 Lift Tickets

How much will lift tickets be next season?

We no longer have a set window rate – lift tickets are priced based on availability and demand. This year, on peak demand days (holidays, weekends, powder days), prices ranged from $9 to $75. On slower days, prices ranged from $9 to $59. The earlier you lock in your ski day, the less you’ll pay.

How much are lift tickets for kids 12 and younger?

Kids 12 and younger receive a FREE season pass (we call it the Power Kids pass), valid at all of our ski resorts. New! Power Kids also enjoy unlimited bike park access at Brian Head, Purgatory, Pajarito and Spider Mountain! Learn more.

Mountain biking! Awesome! What about other summer activities?
