Get your Kirkwood Network Pass Before they are History!

I have some sad news about the Kirkwood Network Pass program.  Unfortunately the new owners of Kirkwood, Vail Resorts, have decided to cancel the Network Program effective October 1, 2012.

So what does this mean???
  • If you've already purchased a pass for 2012/2013, not to worry.  Your pass is valid at Kirkwood for the 2012/2013 season.  You don't have to do anything.  Passes will be available for pick up or mail out in late October, early November.  In upcoming years, however, the pass will not be available for purchase.
  • If you still want to get a network pass, you have until October 1st to make your purchase.  Passes are now $409.  For comparison, the equivalent Kirkwood Pass from Vail is currently $459.  So you can still save $50 if you purchase your pass in the next week.  After October 1st, you will only be able to purchase a Kirkwood Pass from Vail.  Network Passes will no longer be available.
As a reminder, Network passes have no holiday restrictions, unlike the Tahoe Epic passes, so you can ride over thanksgiving, xmas through new years, martin luther king weekend and presidents' week.  Never miss a pow day!  Your pass pays off in as little as 6 days on the mountain.

Purchase Your Pass Here

*This price is only available through your Network representative and is only available for purchase online. The Network pass does not include buddy tickets of any kind or skiing privileges at any other Vail Resort.


buddy tix

I've been been getting a lot of questions about buddy tickets on the network passes.  Thought I'd clarify a few points:
  • the (6) buddy passes that Kirkwood is marketing on their adult passes are basically $10 off coupons for full day lift tickets for your friends.  They are NOT comp passes, free passes, etc.  They just enable you to pay $70 for a lift ticket.... instead of $80.
  • You can typically find much better deals on lift tickets for your friends at REI, sports basement, costco, groupon, shell 2 for 1, etc.  you just have to plan ahead.  
  • Unlike previous years, 2013 network passes do not come with buddy passes.
  • But just do the math.  You save $50 on a network pass.  If you buy the kirkwood pass, you are essentially paying $50 for 6 opportunities to save $10 on a lift ticket.... when there are so many other options out there for discounted lift tickets, it doesn't really add up. 
I hope that helps in making your decision... the network pass is a better value for your $$$s.  Lock in the savings here:
