    So I checked a random date in December on Liftopia, and was surprised to see that the Peak Resorts mountains such as Mount Snow and Attitash/Wildcat have deals posted. I was kind of assuming that once Vail took ownership of these mountains, they would stop posting any deals on Liftopia. The whole Vail model is high window ticket prices to rope people into buying passes. You can save a little bit by buying Epic Day Passes in advance, but they don't post any deals on Liftopia, as far as I know.

    Could this be a case where Peaks made deals with Liftopia in advance of the sale to Vail? Or is Liftopia perhaps posting old deals from last season and haven't actually made updates for 2019?



    I bought an IKON pass for this season, so I'm not going to get an Epic Pass, but I will say that with the addition of the Peaks Resorts mountains, the Epic Pass became a much stronger proposition. I will strongly consider it for next year. Having Sunapee and Crotched as day trips with Wildcat and Stowe as weekend destinations is pretty awesome.

    Vail has said they will let the mtns run this year as they have. Also those peak deals have been on Liftopia for 2 months now. They are for this coming season

    I'm sure the $49 dollar sunday PM lift tickets are going away next year. Looks like an Epic pass is in my future.

    Thank you for this information. This is great news. I will do a couple early or late season days at Wildcat, like I often do, given that these deals will remain in place. Next year will be the big changes. I will have to seriously consider getting an Epic Pass next year.

    FWIW I was using Ride and Ski Card to get tickets (full day) in the low $40's midweek and low $50's weekends. Looks like that might be good again for at least 1 more year.

    I tried to snag a couple of tickets today, but their website is having difficulties. I was greeted by this message:

    "Sorry for any inconvenience, we are experiencing technical difficulties with our sales platform and will be closing the sales until we fix the problem. We will have the "Buy Now" button back up as soon as possible! Again, apologies for the inconvenience.

    We will send out an email to our newsletter list and post notifications to our social channels (Facebook, Instagram & Twitter) with our relaunch time."

    I guess I'll keep checking back.
