    There's nothing on their website about the rate for one person in a car by the day, or whether the season pass on that varies as well.

    Was about $15 last year for a solo in a car.

    Rang the info number today and was promised a return call which didn't happen.

    Tomorrow is the cut-off for an early season pass.

    Anyone know anything about this?

    AFAIK, there is a single charge for a car, ie a vehicle under 12 passengers. Apart from that limit, the number of people in that car is irrelevant. Ditto for a season's pass.

    I always buy a season's pass, so I not that sure of daily charges, but I think last year the charge was >$30/day.

    Thanks. But no, they've been charging about half for a car with only one person in it. Been that way for some years.

    There you go, I have learned something new. Thanks.

    I have had season's passes for maybe 10 -12 years, so I have not really paid much attention to daily entry (and, in fact, I cannot remember the last time I actually stopped at Howman's).

    I think last year I got in for $15 by myself. They certainly don't advertise it. I too am deciding whether to go for season pass or not.

    Yeah. Drawback is that if you get a multi-day solo pass they may ask you to join the queue anyway to check that you're not smuggling someone in.

    I remember you can't get a multi-day solo pass. Its only for 1 day and you can only get it at Howmans gap. So if you are staying multiple nights your choices are:

    a) Drive down to Howmans gap after 2pm each day for a new $15 pass.

    b) Pay $15 for the first day, then go to Oversnow and buy additional days at $35/each and keep your car spot.
