Just received an e-mail today saying Quad Packs are back. I believe the prices seem higher than I remember, although it has been a while since I bought one (and honestly I thought they were a bit TOO cheap for a while).
Purchase by October 14th and it is $399 for a transferable unrestricted quad pack. There's also a new mid-week Quad pack that is $299 through October 14th.
yep, saw that this weekend. disapointed but not surprised.
The old Quadpacks were $259 in 2019. that year I could get a day pass for 70-80 bucks max if I bought it ahead of time. They were a good deal.
Last year I saw the jump in ticket prices, thought "well, thats OK its just this year".
Shame on me.
The midweek one isnt that bad a deal but the blackout dates in february kills it for me because I used the quad passes to get my kids up there midweek. I've never skied Sugarbush on a weekend and don't want to start this year. In the past I would get a couple quad packs, pull my kids out of elementary school and we would go spend a couple days up there midweek once or twice a year. Thats place really helped them develop into great skiers.
Now my son is in seventh grade and missing a day of school really makes him work hard to catch up on homework etc., So pulling him out midweek is no longer an option, his mid week ski days will be on school vacation days....so that mid week pass dosent help me.
If me and friends want to buy it for mid week trips i may get one, but the days of me skiing there with my kids are over, which sucks. I will not pay $100 a day to ski. I'm sorry, thats just my limit. I havent seen the per day pricing yet, but I'm sure it'll be $100+ no matter how far in advance you buy them.
I'm assuming $30 Thursdays at ME are a thing of the past as well.
We got the epic pass this year so I will take the $400 I'd spend on that quad pass and spend it on a cheap hotel near Stowe (it will buy me 2 nights at a dive hotel, I've checked) and we will ski Stow 3 days midweek in school vacation week instead of Sugarbush this year. New Hampshire and Vermont's school vacation weeks in February is the week after New York and Massachusetts so the crowds shouldn't be that bad. They've never been that bad in New Hampshire that week anyway. And yes I bought the epic pass that lets me ski stowe with no blackout dates. We may spend some time around Christmas up there as well depending on conditions.
I know there's a lot of hatred for Vail on this site and who knows after this year maybe I'll hate them too, but until they give me a reason to I'm excited for the epic pass but I will miss Sugarbush.
Enjoy fellas I hope you have a kick ass season up there this year.
