We’ve received many questions about Pajarito’s season passes for the 2014-2015 winter. The details for this sale are still being worked out, but here is what we know so far:
Season passes will be available for purchase very soon. We expect the sale to begin no later than July 8, 2014.
An Adult Premium Pass will start at $299. This will include unlimited access (no blackout dates) at both Pajarito and Sipapu, and Premium Passes will include Passholder Perks, which include three free days at each partner ski area (a full list of partners is listed below). This pass is created for skiers and snowboarders who want to hit the slopes as often as they can at ski areas in New Mexico, Colorado, Utah and throughout the country.
Only Premium Passes will offer Passholder Perks. Here are the 27 ski areas that Sipapu currently partners with, and we anticipate having agreements in place with all of these ski areas on behalf of Pajarito by the time our passes go on sale:
Premium Passholders will receive 3 free days at each of the following mountains: Red River Ski Area, Ski Apache, Grand Targhee Resort (with lodging purchase), Sunlight Mountain Resort, Ski Cooper, Powderhorn Mountain Resort, Las Vegas Ski and Snowboard Resort, Brian Head Resort, Eagle Point Ski Resort, Devil’s Thumb Ranch, Kendall Mountain, Lookout Pass Ski & Recreation Area, Silver Mountain Resort, Labrador Mountain, Sunburst Ski Area, Little Switzerland, Mount Bohemia, Snowy Range Ski and Recreation Area, Catalooche Ski Area, Indianhead Mountain, Blackjack Ski Resort, Mission Ride Ski & Board Resort, Eaglecrest Ski Area and Ski Mystic Deer Mountain.
Premium Passholders will also receive 3 half-day tickets at: Arizona Snowbowl and Sundown Mountain Resort.
An Adult Value Pass will be available starting at $199. This will include limited access to Pajarito (blackout dates will be December 22-23, 2014; December 27-31, 2014; January 2-3, 2015; March 8-12, 2015 and March 15-19, 2015) and will not include Passholder Perks. This pass is ideal for skiers and snowboarders who want to ski at Pajarito only this winter and don’t mind the added restrictions.
We will also offer a Family Pass, which will be perfect for families looking for the most affordable way to ski or snowboard this winter. Like the Value Pass, the Family Pass will offer limited access to Pajarito (with the same blackout dates as listed above) and will not include Passholder Perks. Family passes are good for immediate family members, all living together and supported by the same income. The first and second pass may be purchased for any age, and the remaining passes are valid for dependent children ages 19 and younger only.
For the first time, Pajarito will also offer a Sunday only pass, which will be fantastic for those who want the freedom of a season pass and don’t mind limiting it to Sundays. There are no Sunday blackout dates on this pass.
We will continue to offer adult, child, student and senior season passes. Our plan is to discontinue the “dependent” pass (although our student pass will be available for guests ages 13-20, college students of any age who are enrolled in a minimum of 9 credit hours, and graduate students of any age who are enrolled in a minimum of 6 graduate hours).
You will be able to purchase your pass in the exact same ways you have done in the past: online at skipajarito.com, by phone at 505-662-5725 or at the administrative office at the mountain.
Know that we are committed to communicating the pass sale launch, the pass sale pricing and deadlines to you. Once the season passes go on sale – and throughout the season pass sale period – we will keep you informed via email, at skipajarito.com, on the Pajarito Facebook page and through this blog. Please continue to let us know how we can make this information available to you, and we look forward to this next step toward the 2014-2015 winter season!
