The question of 70+ season passes arose in the Perisher snow report thread, so I brought it here so as not to distract from that thread. @oldgeezer lamented that he would not qualify for a Perisher season pass in 2021 because his birthday was too late in June. I replied that I didn't think that would be a problem in Thredbo, (because I had obtained a 70+ season pass immediately after my birthday in mid-July). @Townsend posted that that might not be the case and indeed, on reviewing the Thredbo terms and conditions, it appears that you have to be 70 on June 8th to qualify. In my innocence, I just rocked up to the ticket office, asked for a season pass, showed my licence and got the 70+ price, presumably in error. I inquired at the Perisher ticket office last week and was told I could get a 70+ season pass for next year for $189 (same as Thredbo), or $335 with the ski tube included. I can find nothing online about the season pass for Perisher (they are only pushing the Epic Pass at this stage), so it is unclear what their policy is regarding the cutoff date for turning 70. It's far from universal, as I have got a 70+ pass for Ruapehu ($5 !!!) and they clearly state that it is your age when ordering the pass that matters. It's a moot point for me at this stage, but if anyone can cast any light on Perisher's policy, it might be of help to others.
