With only 10 days until season passes can be bought for the 2010/11 ski season at the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, resort officials announced yesterday not only new mountain biking and hiking trails, major improvements to snowmaking and multiple new terrain park locations, but they also showed a huge commitment to the locals by reducing all access season pass prices by 25%.
Jerry Blann, President of JHMR, outlines the reduced 2010/11 season pass prices.
The Grand Pass, formally known as the All Mountain Pass, has zero restrictions and will be available in the month of August for $1255, a 25% percent reduction from the 09/10 season when it went for $1670 and a price point not seen since the 80′s. This is a huge reduction in price and pretty great news for the ski bum who rides the wire everyday, and brings the cost per day down to $10 if you ski all 128 days the resort is open. Not an easy task, but I know there are many that do. Seniors will also see similar reductions in pass prices, with their passes going for only $815 in August. Now that is what I call a cheap retirement package!
JHMR 2010/11 Grand Pass price is well below the price
it was in 1990…the earliest season pass price on record.
As usual and like past years, prices bump up a bit once September rolls around, but the 25% reduction holds true throughout the price structure. Included in the new pricing are great ski deals for kids too with the Youth Pass (6-14yrs) at $149 and the Student Pass going for $275 dollars. Those Jackson kids are so lucky to have such a great backyard hill; I sure hope they appreciate it.
It’d be nice if everything was all roses regarding the season passes, but the cost of JHMR’s 10-day, 20-day and weekend passes will unfortunately see an increase in price. However, with the reduced cost of the Grand, all-access pass, many would be 20 day’ers might now see themselves dropping-in for a full blow pass, which gives them the flexibility to ski more and not worry about eating into their previously limited number of days. Also included in the Grand Pass are full START bus privileges, a JH Ski Club membership, invitation to Pass Holder Party, mountain discounts and summer tram use.
Other winter improvements include a 25% increase in snowmaking, which will hopefully allow the resort to open up more of the upper mountain earlier in the season. Another big plus for locals since the resort is nearly void of tourists prior to the Christmas holiday rush. In addition, the resort has also teamed up with Burton Snowboards to provide 4 new “Burton Stash Parks” which will incorporate numerous natural features into the trail system and allow for increased jibbing and bonking for those that need more to keep themselves occupied.
