So, you bought your 2012/13 Squaw Valley USA season pass? Or you haven’t yet. Either way, it’s good to know what benefits come with this year’s season pass. Last year, there was a KILLER powder day on Sunday, March 18th. If you had a gold pass, you could have gotten early ups and gotten 6 laps in deep blower snow on Granite Chief before the public. This 6 laps is confirmed by a friend who was there and did exactly this. She had a Gold pass and the early ups was a free benefit of her pass. We were chumps, had Gold passes, didn’t know we could do this and waited in the KT line for hours with the other commoners. Squaw Season Passholder Benefits Explained | Unofficial Networks

So, you bought your 2012/13 Squaw Valley USA season pass?  Or you haven’t yet.  Either way, it’s good to know what benefits come with this year’s season pass.

Last year, there was a KILLER powder day on Sunday, March 18th.  If you had a gold pass, you could have gotten early ups and gotten 6 laps in deep blower snow on Granite Chief before the public.  This 6 laps is confirmed by a friend who was there and did exactly this.  She had a Gold pass and the early ups was a free benefit of her pass.  We were chumps, had Gold passes, didn’t know we could do this and waited in the KT line for hours with the other commoners.

It’s good to know this information especially to hook up friends and family with tickets.  Those top two benefits on the list are for buying tickets for friends.  Cool to know you can get afternoon rates on your blackout dates.

You definitely wanna use those 2 Dawn Patrol on powder weekends next year.  Be on top of that one for sure.  That is the best benefit in here.  Early ups like the pros for free.

If you’re gonna buy a pass, you might as well milk all these benefits that come with it.
