Can't wait to be 75 or 80?

The 2017-18 ski Pass prices are out for the Wasatch Front of Utah. Prices do vary a great deal, and if you are as old as I am, it's always interesting to see what's offered to older folks.

First, I must say that Park City Mountain (part of Vail Resorts' Epic Pass) does nothing for seniors. Cheaper passes for all, perhaps, but they figure that when you're old and want to ski you need to be rich. Shame on you Vail Resorts for the way your discriminating against old folks like us!

Deer Valley Resort, with it outrageous prices, show that the give “breaks” for seniors. Yet, those still will break the bank if older geezers continue to cling to that resort's “rich” and “old” image. Not impressed!

You'll need to drive far away from Park City if you want a genuine old-person discount.

First, to Robert Redford's Sundance resort that offers a $150 pass for everyone over 65; great job!

Then, Alta must be commended for its $50.00 season ski pass, but you need to wait till you're half-dead as a skier; that's right you must be 80 to qualify, so I find it a real stretch and may not want to wait that long to indulge with the overblown Alta mystique.

Finally, I must salute two resorts that are in the northern Wasatch range, Powder Mountain and Snowbasin, that both make a genuine effort to attract the thinning ranks of the 75 + age group, respectively with $20 (yeah, no typo) and $80 season pass prices. Way to go northerners. I may give you a try pretty soon!
