Snow Creek, in western Missouri a little north of Kansas City, runs their season pass sale through the end of the month. It's the last chance to get a discounted pass for the 2010/11 season.
There are passes for those that want to ski or ride daily, and passes that allow you to come out just once a week or just for the late night sessions; lots of choices.
An individual adult pass (ages 7-69) is currently $400. A child's (6 and under) and senior's (70+) season pass is just $5 anytime. It's one of the best senior season pass rates in the Heartland.The adult pass will be going up $50 Nov. 1.
A Family of 4 Pass, good for up to four family members living in the same household, is now $1200. It will be going up by over $150 next month. Additional family members beyond four can be added at any time for $100 each after you purchase the initial pass.
A couple of new passes this season are the Once-A-Week Pass that allows you to ski or ride one day per week, your choice each week, and the Late Night Pass for night owls. It allows you to ski and ride from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday nights throughout the season. The passes are respectively $300 and $190 currently. Both will be going up $30 next month.
A new rental building will be ready for the ski area's 25th season.
An additional bonus for Snow Creek pass holders is you receive half-off a lift ticket at any other Peak Resorts property: sister resort Hidden Valley in Missouri; Paoli Peaks in Indiana; Mad River Mountain and Boston Mills/Brandywine in Ohio; Jack Frost/Big Boulder in Pennsylvania; and Crotched Mountain in New Hampshire.
