    I was looking at buying a thredbo pass again this year and was shocked that they want $1400 .
    Perisher emailed me again today they want $870 or something like that. I know the passes went on sale ages ago but I had no interest in giving them money on nov, as I always buy around this time. I paid about $900 last year , any ideas why the big increase ?

    You need to get in early!
    The 365 pass was $849, that’s an all year every day pass for lifts, golf, pool, gym and bobsled.

    The discount is for going in early. Taking a risk on snow conditions.

    Yeah, I hate those lousy snow conditions over summer on the MTB.
    It’s a risk :D

    The risk for me is mountain biking, I did two trips there during summer and only got one run each trip.

    Even then it was only the first third of a run then a limp back to the bottom with a busted bike.

    I got my moneys worth on the bobsled

    Two seasons passes are $2800 for a couple.

    Playing Captain Obvio here but thats a month’s rent.

    Why dont I buy Season passes again?

    And sorry Earlybirds (Vic) are always too close to end of previous for us.

    Day ticks for me at what &135 or so?? ☠️

    Earlybird is the way.

    6-7 day trips and you've covered the cost of a season pass

    Yeah the only time is matters is Thredbo - cause to use the summer facilities you have to pay upfront. (but you don't have to if you only want it to ski)

    But otherwise EVERY other Aus season passes earlier bird is nominal amount due at season end - rest use Autumn next year.

    The timing seems to not work for people for some reason, some friends paid not much less than I did for the 365, for the mtb summer pass, some didnt buy it, it all went up after September or maybe October (I just paid my deposit when I got the email). Not sure if it applied to cheap winter only as well, but had to be paid in full by end November this time.

    Its called time value of money.

    I only bought the winter pass as have zero interest in mtb. Paid the deposit in Sep last season and the balance was due at the end of last month. Waiting patiently for the 4 dayer to be released and we're good to go
