Powder Mountain kicked off an unusual campaign for season pass sales this summer. In prior years, season pass prices increased in September and again in November. But this year, pass prices jump based on the number of season passes sold, rather than the date.

For example, only the first 300 takers get the lowest adult price for $650. The price jumps to $715 for the next 550 passes, once those 300 passes are sold.

You can skip the season pass and purchase the Utah Powder Pass. Get it for $20 if purchased by Sept. 1 to save between 29 to 35 percent off lift tickets. That's $16 off an adult day pass.
