Alberta’s Lake Louise has their spring passes on sale now. The pass is valid for Canadians to use starting March 1, 2014.

The spring pass works for lift access between March 1 and May 4, 2014, the tentative closing date this season. While that allows for 65 days of use, most skiers will get the value in much fewer days.

Some of the passes pay for themselves within four or five days of use, making them viable for visitors; however, you must be a Canadian resident to purchase one. Four days of use gets the value out of a midweek pass, and five days of use get the value from an adult pass.

Spring pass purchasers get discounts added on. Pass buyers can also bring four friends skiing daily April 21-May 4, 2014. The friends can receive $20 off full-day adult tickets during those Bonus Days.

Purchasers also can get discounts on accommodations, dining and retail items. The passes also grant discounts at partner ski resorts and for heli or cat skiing.

Spring passes cost $399 for adults, $799 for families, $299 for youth and $124 for children. Rates are available for other age groups, too.

The spring passes are for sale online.
