Ski with a Friend prices

I see these aren't posted yet this year. Can anyone tell me how much they were last year?

I'm coming out for sure for 3 days in Feb with a few buddies and was wondering if it would be cheaper for us to each buy 3 day lift tickets ($252 each) or get a Summit County season pass ($409) and use the 6 ski with a friend tickets. If my calculations are correct, the Ski With a Friend tickets would need to be about $25 cheaper than a normal lift ticket to make it worthwile.

There's a small chance I'd come out again and ski so that's another though into buying the season pass.

I see that the SWAF prices change throughout the season, we are going to be skiing Feb 3-5.

I know they had prices up there last week - don't hold me to it - but I think it will be about $89 for the dates you mentioned. I am not sure where I am pulling this number from within my head. Could be BS - good be extreme psychic abilities - could be repressed memory for the crappy discount - who can really say. Maybe try calling and asking. http://www.snow.com/info/swaf.aspx

I don't recall what they cost, but I seem to think they're cheaper than $89. I got a Copper/Winter Park pass this year and buddy tickets are $69, although Vail Resorts will likely be different.

Make sure to check exclusion dates if you're thinking of going to Vail or Beaver Creek. I'm not sure when President's Day is, but I think that weekend is excluded for Vail/Beaver Creek. (probably is for the three day as well, but another thing to consider)

Prices still aren't up. I think I am going to call this week.

We are going Feb 3-7 so we don't have to worry about any of the blackout dates.

I'm looking for the Ski With a Friend lift ticket prices that come with your season pass. I did find the regular lift ticket prices earlier, I know that will be $252 for a 3 day pass. I need to figure out how much cheaper the Ski With a Friend tickets are to see if it's worthwile for me to just buy a season pass and use the SWAF tickets for the people coming with me.

I ended up calling them and they told me it would probably be about 20% off the single day lift ticket price. I'm guessing single day tickets are 90-100, so I'd only save about 15-20 dollars per ticket.

I found this chart online too, looks like its from last year and that's about the same discount they are telling me this year.
