    Resorts posted ticket prices fro 2010 DH season

    Check it out. Keystone, Winterpark and Solvista posted their 2010 season prices. Now I need to plan my season so the lift money buys me the most possible runs.

    That would be service. For free.

    Seriously: Too complex to post all the details.

    i like the keystone 5 pack.. good idea as I always think the season pass is overkill for me (due to my busy life, wish I could go 50 times..)

    Keystone cares about DH mountain bikes again? Early season and a MSC race this year. Winter Park with a MSC race this year and an upgraded DH at Crankworkx. Sol Vista continues to kick ass and hosting Nationals again this year.

    Our summer lift season this year is going to be awesome times!

    Maybe Vail will start investing as well!

    To be fair, I already had that chart ready to go. I removed Vail as they didn't post a season price. If you remove the days we will need the Sol Vista and Winter Park passes for racing, you will get your money's worth in 3-4 additional trips to either.

    It looks like a good year to buy both passes.

    But if you figure a $249 season pass at Keystone (w/ ski pass and buy before a certain date) it'll only take you 7 days for ROI. Factor in a couple of practice days for MSC and that ain't too shabby of a deal, either.

    Half of Keystone mtn probably has just as much vert as all of Sol Vista. In fact, if they start the Keystone race at mid mtn, it'll still be a 4+ min race (IMO).

    It's nice that WP kept their season pass the same price as last year even with all the upgrades they did last year and plan on doing this year. I can't wait to see what they offer this year.

    While true, you can only fit half as many runs in a day at Keystone as you can at SolVista. I'd wager the number of actual minutes you spend riding your bike if you just lapped either mountain all day would be about the same.

    So much depends on the lift lines though.. I have spent a lot of time in lift lines at either places, but Sol Vista ranks up there as the worst experience as far as that goes.. not griping, just saying.. seriously happy to have the options!

    Any Keystone folks know what plans are for this year.

    I like that they started to add some features to some of the trails (ie TNT, East Forest)

    I personally think they have plenty of trail and if work was continued on improving the existing trail it would be great.. TNT seems like an open slate ready for all kinds of things..

    As many of the races I plan on doing this year...i dont think im going to spend the money on a season pass. Im just going to use my winter 5 mtn pass and WP pass to get discounted tickets. I know its not much but its better than full price.

    About the ROI with race weekends included:

    Race weekend lift tickets are generally about $15/day instead of the normal $25+. Did you guys factor that in to the ROI?

    Keystone/wp is still 20-30 minutes closer by car each way, so I can wake up later, ride just as much, and be home in time to hit up a brew at GCB.

    Is there a discount for daily or season passes at WP if you have a ski season pass?

    I couldn't find anything on their website mentioning this.

    oooh idk about that one...

    i could see them closing in the winter due to the close competition with WP.

    but definitely not in the summer...they just built that new clubhouse and just got the new bike lift.

    i doubt it. where did you hear this rumor?

    I am not so sure. Keystone has over double the vertical and has a brand new high speed gondola and it moves pretty fast. Solvista's lift does not. The only issue I see is how Keystone loads their lifts. It would be interesting to get a valid comparison though.

    You can really dial a trail in faster at Solvista for sure.

    There's only one way to settle this dispute: ride both parks all summer long, then compare results

    Did you just make up the part about having to buy before a certain date to get the discount? There's nothing on the web site about it. That is the same price it has been for years and I always bought it at the counter my first day riding.
