70 SEASON PASSES COMPARED Sept 22, 2009

70 Season Passes in One Place: Adult, Unlimited, No restrictions

Back by popular demand, this week brings an improved edition of the Season Passes Comparison for North America. Time is running short to lock in good season pass rates for the year, but there are still plenty of options. If you're planning to ride or ski more than 3 weekends, or you've got a group of friends who can pool together, then now is the time to get the good deals. We added 10 more resorts to the comparison this week.

If you've done any shopping for season passes online, then you know that it's pretty tough to get to a decent list of comparable prices, or to even find prices for more than one resort with clicking your fingers to the bone. Gabby can attest to this: she's doing the weekly homework for this season pass review, and here clicking finger is still on ice:)

Here is the next installment of her homework to make it just a little easier for you. The Ski Dazzle homework for the week adds 10 resorts for a total of 70 of the 2009/10 season passes from across North America. We'll keep updating this list as the season progresses, and update our weekly deal reviews with information that makes it easier to hit the slopes with the best deals. Here's our plan for the next few weeks:
1. Research season pass deals at more resorts,
2. Check out group passes for our members, and
3. Compare lift tickets as the El Nino snow forecast comes upon us.

We'd love to get your feedback, so leave a comment and let us know what you want to see in the weekly deals review and how we can help make your life a bit easier.

In the meantime, here's our list of 70 resorts, in one place, with 3 things to help shop and compare season passes:
a) the current price of an adult, unlimited and unrestricted season pass
b) the date when the current price offer expires, if available
c) a link to the season pass web pages to check out limited, restricted and group passes that may be a better fit for your budget and schedule**

The 70 season pass offers are organized in 11 regions
  1. Southern California
  2. Northern California
  3. Sierras
  4. Utah
  5. Colorada
  6. Midwest
  7. Southwest
