Whistler Blackcomb Season Pass Prices Released (25-Aug-08)

WHISTLER, BC, August 25, 2008 – Whistler Blackcomb has released its season pass pricing

Whistler Blackcomb has released its season pass pricing for the upcoming 2008-2009 season. From August 27, through to October 13 early bird pricing is available. An unlimited adult pass is available for the Early Bird price of $1,529 including unlimited access to the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola.

“This season is a really exciting time for the whole community of Whistler,” says Stuart Rempel senior vice president of marketing and sales at Whistler Blackcomb. “With the opening of the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola, passholders really will be the ones to benefit the most. Grabbing breakfast in Dusty’s Backside, uploading Creekside Gondola, across the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola and boot-packing into Spanky’s on a powder day all before 11am – phew - it won’t get better than that! The PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola will allow pass holders to really put their pass to use and get the most out of their days on the mountains.”

In 2003-2004 the Unlimited Adult Pass was available for $1,329 which, when factoring in inflation, equates to approximately $1,580 today. The Unlimited Adult Pass for the 2008-2009 season, is available at the Early Bird rate of $1,529, including unlimited use of the new PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola.

“Providing a great product at a fair price is really important to Whistler Blackcomb,” Rempel continues. “We constantly work to ensure that we offer our most valued guests; pass holders, the best possible value.”

In the past five years infrastructure improvements have enhanced the value of pass products with the introduction of Flute Bowl’s 1,000 plus acres as inbound terrain; expansion to the snowmaking infrastructure; and $250,000 worth of improvements to the Roundhouse Lodge. However the introduction of the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola will have the greatest impact on improving passholders’ experience on the mountains. The PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola will help dissipate congestion areas around the mountain. If Emerald Zone is particularly active, using the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola to check out Crystal Zone suddenly becomes an option. Following the sun or the snow becomes much easier with the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola. Ski Whistler in the morning; then head over to 7th Heaven for the afternoon sun.

“How many times has the great debate gone on: what mountain shall we ski today,” inquires Rempel. “Or how many times have you called a friend midday, only to find out they’re on the other mountain? It won’t matter any more with the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola. Skiers and riders can hit their favourite spots on a powder day, on both mountains. You can follow the sun from Whistler in the morning to Blackcomb in the afternoon. You can have waffles at the Crystal Hut for lunch and be at Dusty’s for après, all without trekking to the valley and up the other side again.”
