    September 2, 2014 2014-15 Season Pass holders SAVE 50% off window ticket rate at each partner resort.

    Whistler Blackcomb and Sun Peaks Resort are excited to announce a new reciprocal seasons pass agreement. This agreement allows 2014.15 Season Passholders to receive a discount of 50 per cent off the window ticket rate at each of the resorts, Whistler Blackcomb and Sun Peaks Resort.

    This new agreement coincides with Sun Peaks Resort’s recent announcement of adding over 500 acres of alpine terrain to become the second largest ski resort in Canada. Whistler Blackcomb is the largest ski resort in North America.

    “We continually look for new and exciting ways to add value for our season passholders,” says Stuart Rempel, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Sales at Whistler Blackcomb. “This is an exciting season for us with our new Whistler Village Gondola cabins and RFID access, both which will be ready to go for opening day. We look forward to welcoming Sun Peaks’ passholders to come and experience what skiing and riding in Whistler is all about.”

    The offer applies to 2014.15 Whistler Blackcomb Unlimited Season Passholders, including Whistler Blackcomb Spirit Passholders, and 2014.15 Sun Peaks Alpine Season Passholders. For Whistler Blackcomb Passholders, this offer excludes Midweek, 15-Day, Student, Graduate, and Spring Passholders.

    “We couldn’t be more excited about the agreement,” says Aidan Kelly, Director of Sales and Marketing at Sun Peaks Resort. “With our new terrain development, we saw lots of opportunity to build our relationship with Whistler Blackcomb. We wanted to add value to our existing season passholders while opening us up to additional markets. Having an alliance with Whistler Blackcomb means combining two significant resorts. We hope Whistler Blackcomb passholders take advantage of this great opportunity to explore the interior.”

    Whistler Blackcomb’s official opening day is November 27, 2014, and Sun Peaks’ official opening day is November 22, 2014.

    A 50 per cent discount will be applied to the current Window Ticket rate at the time of purchase and the Season Passholder must show valid photo identification along with their 2014.15 Season Pass for their respective resort partner

    Nice one.

    I love all these alliances etc.

    If I go to a wedding in France in March this year in Courchevel, my Buller SP gets me a 5 day FOC ticket there.

    How many have you ticked off with a discount MS ?

    You can buy a Rabbit Hill season pass for $279 and get 25% off quite a list of other resorts inc Sun Peaks.

    Not as many as I'd like.

    But I have plenty of time.

    50% is a good deal and its an interesting exercise comparing season pass cost + benefits to a multi resort trip.

    Not really much use for a single resort trip except of course for the marketing angle.
