Welcome to the Pentagon Ski Club!
May 1, 2022
We're still in the process of setting them up, but most of our 2023 trips will be to resorts that honor one of the multi-resort season passes. You may purchase passes directly from the suppliers (click on the logos above), but our tour operators have promotions offering rebates on the trips you might take with the club. You may wish to consider purchasing your passes through them. The exception is Military passes, which must be purchased from the suppliers.
Here's our current list of trips, indicating the pass products ... and tour operators ... for each:
Be sure to read the fine print describing the benefits of the specific pass product you're considering. Limitations may apply on the number of days passes are valid at each resort, and Blackout dates may apply.
A couple of things to note. For example, the Jackson Hole trip is during a holiday blackout period, and the only IKON pass that will be valid during the trip is the FULL IKON pass (not the Base or Base Plus passes). If you plan to take the trip to Jackson Hole and also plan to ski at another IKON resort, it would be more cost effective to purchase the full IKON pass rather than the individual lift tickets at the two resorts. (We don't yet have pricing on JH lift tickets for the 2023 season, but indications are that they will be $100+ per day.)
Another nuance is that for some EPIC pass destinations in Europe, the validity of the pass is dependent upon the lodging property used. This is the case for the club's second European trip to Austria. We are working to finalize a contract where we will be staying at one of the hotels included in the EPIC pass. For the Trois Vallées/Meribel trip, there is no restriction and the full EPIC pass (not the military EPIC pass) allows for 7 days of skiing.
You should consider purchasing passes early-on as the cost typically increases at the start of the summer, and then again around Labor Day. Pass sales are likely to end sometime in the fall.
