The first European-wide season ski pass claims it will bring together 100 ski resorts from 8 countries. All for a launching price of €395. NEW

 

 

 

 

50,000 ski passes are said to be available for €395.

The reduced rate passes will go on sale on 12th May.

When the first 50,000 are gone, the pass price will increase to €895.

It will be the first European season ski pass.

The Snowpass Card will reportedly bring together more than 100 ski resorts, though no details have been released about which resorts will be included.

It has been suggested the resorts will be in eight European countries, including Austria, Italy, France and Switzerland.

Snowpass Card holders will have access to the biggest group of ski resorts in the world.

The card will allow pass holders to ski in all partner ski resorts, meaning a huge variety of slopes for 176 days though the use of the card in resorts will be limited.

There is a limit of 10 used days in each ski resort or group of ski resorts, though details at this point are somewhat vague.

The Snowpass Card will run from 1st November, 2019 through to 25th April, 2020.

It appears that around 40,000 people have already pre-registered an order for their card.

Among the pre-registration, Germans have shown the greatest interest with 20% of the total.

Though people have signed up from all over Europe.

The Snowpass website says the list of the partner ski resorts will be announced on the 8th May.

Here at PlanetSKI we will bring you full details.

Sales will start on 12th May.

Snowpass and the International Ski Federation (FIS) have announced they are digital partners.


Snowpass claims to give everyone the opportunity to enjoy the slopes during the whole ski season at an affordable price, whilst providing necessary revenue for the ski resorts involved.

Here at PlanetSKI we believe it may be a significant venture and could prove very interesting.

"The key thing is which resorts are involved and which companies are behind it," said the PlanetSKI editor, James Cove.

"It has all come somewhat out of the blue and details are limited."

Here at PlanetSKI we will be making further enquiries and will keep you posted.
