Adults can save the most by purchasing a season pass on sale for $975. The price after the sale increases to $1,100. Sale passes for seniors cost $600, and then go up to $650.

Sale pass rates for youth, teens, and young adults ages 7-26 run $225-600, depending on age. Their passes increase by $50 after the sale.

Families can get discounts on season passes, too. A pass for the first adult in the family costs $975 while a spouse pass costs $625. Passes can be added on for youth and teens for $175-275 each, depending on age.

Midweek passes, which are on sale for $550, are good for those trying to avoid weekend crowds. They are valid Monday through Friday during winter with no blackout dates. The passes increase by $100 after the sale.

Snowbasin offers passes for active duty or retired military personnel, but with no special sale price. Military passes are available before and after the sale for the same rate of $525.
