Re: “Whistler Blackcomb announces 2017-18 pass pricing

Sorry, pushed Post Comment prematurely...to continue:

...would have to double in cost for us...which is not going to happen. I guess it's time to explore other mountains.

Closing, I will say earlier announcements about price slashing are complete garbage. I only hope that enough people will refuse to pay extra for what's already quite expensive.

Bye, bye Whistler. After so many years our family of four will not be getting 2017 - 2018 cards this time around.

There is no need to repeat all valid concerns of people from the earlier posts. All I will say is that with the removal of some more affordable options skiing in Whistler would have double incost for us

Re: “Harriman enjoys lucky seven in Boston

PERMANENTSPELLCAST@GMAIL.COM WhatsApp: +2348100663964, www.permanentspellcaster.com . All thanks to Lord Henry of permanent spell cast magics for bringing back my ex and mending my broken marriage. I almost lost all hopes of getting back my ex after 2 years of breakup. My name is Emilia Book, i and my husband broke up 2 years ago after a fight. He packed out of the house leaving a note which read "AM DONE" I got back from work that evening only to get the note and didn't find my husband. I visited his friends home to know if he was there but he wasn't. I lost him for almost 1 year and 7 months until i was told by a friend the he was living in Paris with another lady. It hurt me so much because i was already 2 weeks pregnant when he left. I went to Paris, met with him and tried to talk to him but he didn't listen, i told him he was the father of our child and he said he knew and drove away. I felt so bad and hurt. I went back home with tears from my eyes and ever since i always tried every possible means to get him back home but all always got lost. I was introduced to Lord Henry of permanent spell cast by a neighbor who gave me Lord Henry's email and phone number. I contacted the spell caster regarding my marriage problems and he helped me with love spell on my husband. He told me that i shall get back my husband the next 3 days after the love spell. I expected it and it really did happen as Lord Henry told me, my door bell rang that morning and i went to check who it was and to my greatest surprise it was my husband. He said he suddenly had thoughts of returning home to me and our child the day after the spell was done. I was so happy that he came back to me, but i pretended that i was cool. I want to use this medium to thank Lord Henry for mending my broken marriage and making my husband fall more deeply in love with me than before. Thank You Lord Henry. To you that is reading this story and all that is facing problems in marriages or relationships, contact Lord Henry too for help on Email: permanentspellcast@gmail.com , permanentspellcast@yahoo.com , and permanentspellcast@hotmail.com .

Re: “Vail bends to pressure following backlash over removal of parent pass

Spangler: That page was edited after I posted the link. I'm not surprised, they are obviously making this up as they go along. I am calm, and thanks for the advice, but I just can't cheer up since I found out we're out of the Mountain Collective - no lame mountains in that collection. The epic pass is indeed epic, many of the mountains, not so much. Vail itself is just great, however - kind of like a bigger Big White...

Re: “Vail bends to pressure following backlash over removal of parent pass

As a parent affected by the eliminated parent pass, I agree that this is a great first step and is a big financial relief for next season. I'm also nervous and curious about potential changes to the Sea to Sky student pass, but I'm even more curious as to why other Vail resorts have a discounted 'Epic Local' pass for those who are only skiing their local resort, but at WB we have to pay more for a WB only pass?

Re: “Vail bends to pressure following backlash over removal of parent pass

What about the Edge Card devaluation? WB expect people to pay more for less value than this season? 10% price hike, reduction in early and late season benefits, the list goes on. The parent pass was just the tip of the iceberg. All of WBs passes are heavily devalued this season. Why pay more for less?

Re: “Vail bends to pressure following backlash over removal of parent pass

So what's happening with the Sea to Sky student pass next year?https://www.whistlerblackcomb.com/purchase… If it gets discontinued, then rich kids from the city will see the price of their passes passes drop, all while local kids ages 13+ see their passes go up about $300

Re: “Whistler Blackcomb announces 2017-18 pass pricing

I am so disappointed the parent pass has been discontinued. This will affect many families in the Sea to Sky corridor. Our children are future consumers of this resort, and we are the fabric of this community. Clearly Vail does not value our Whistler Families. Shame.

Re: “WB announces 2017-18 pass pricing

I've been buying the edge card and skiing at Whistler three weeks each season for the last five years now. My partner is disabled, and staying in the village was a good value for us. The Crystal Lodge has been our Whistler home, and we have befriended many of the staff. We won't be back next season. As was probably expected, Vail is shooting themselves in the foot by alienating returning guests. Like any business, repeat customers provide the backbone to success. Vail has just told me how much they value my patronage. Mt. Bachelor is looking pretty good next year.

Re: “Whistler Blackcomb announces 2017-18 pass pricing

Epic fail for Vail! (Or, in Colorado lingo -VILE-) They don't seem to get that a primary purpose of the midweek pass was to give some locals a reason to not ski weekends, and as a result least slightly reduce the crowd sizes. Was happy to leave some pow for the weekend folks, but now, when the conditions are good, I'll be up there in the hope of getting 1 good run in, mixed in with the hours of putting up with even bigger crowds.

Re: “WB announces 2017-18 pass pricing

So no 1 day edge card for the semi local who goes a handful of times. Boy with the traffic in and out of whistler, the astronomical day prices, the massive line ups, the fight to get a few powder turns per day, why on earth would I bother going to whistler anymore when there are so many other places to ski?

Re: “Whistler Blackcomb announces 2017-18 pass pricing

Not only did they discontinue the parent pass, doubling the cost for my family to ride next season, but to also charge more for a WB only pass when in the US Vail offers discounted Epic Local Passes for those who only want to ski local resorts, is the insult to injury. Why do we have to pay more for a local only WB pass when other resorts pay less for the same kind of pass for their local resorts?

Re: “WB announces 2017-18 pass pricing

The 10 day Edge Card has increased in price by $70 that's a 10% price increase from last year. They have also discontinued the unlimited Spring skiing add-on and reduced the window for unlimited early season skiing from 4 to 3 weeks. Coupled with reduced perks on the Unlimited pass, static pricing on the Spirit Pass and elimination of the parent pass this has been a PR and marketing disaster for WB/Vail.

Re: “Whistler Blackcomb announces 2017-18 pass pricing

Holy cow. Could Vail screw this up any further? Let's see

- Eliminate parent pass
- Eliminate 2 free tickets for season pass holders
- Increase price of Edge Card and add restrictions
- Eliminate 3 and 1 day Edge cards
- Eliminate unlimited Spring skiing add-on for Edge Card
- Reduce the early season unlimited skiing for 10 day Edge Card from 4 to 3 weeks

Thanks for looking out for your loyal customers /sarc
