do you have afternoon season pass.

Alta September 10, 2019 Reply to Post

We don't have an all-area afternoon pass. The closest pass would be the Ski At Three, which would allow you to ski Sunnyside and Albion from 3-4:30 every day.

I plan to ski midweek on a 3 day vacation Do you have any discounts on lift tickets for me?

Alta September 10, 2019 Reply to Post

Check back in a couple of weeks when we release our day pass pricing. Purchasing tickets online in advance would secure you the best price for a midweek 3-of-4 day ticket.

Last year's pricing is still available here:

I have 2017-18 senior pass. I think that includes a couple free days at Snowbird. Are they still available and if so how do I obtain them.


Paula Bjornn September 9, 2019 Reply to Post

What about the 1 1/2 hour afternoon ski pass from 3—4:30? What does that cost this year and does one get a discount if bought before the 12th?

Alta September 10, 2019 Reply to Post

Adult Sunnyside @ 3 Card is $39.

Includes Sunnyside lift after 3pm and 20% off...

The Adult Sunnyside @ 3 Card pass includes the Sunnyside lift after 3pm. If you ski a lift besides Sunnyside or decide to ski before 3pm, since this pass is tied to your credit card, we will bill you 20% off the window rate of any ticket type you ski.
