Can I keep my current M.A.X. Pass card to use next season?
Yes, your 16/17 MAX Pass card is re-loadable for the 17/18 season. If you have a current MAX Pass and renew, you will not receive new media in the mail. If you need a new card due to loss or damage, email firstname.lastname@example.org for a replacement pass.
Are there any blackout dates?
There are no blackout dates, which provides access to the slopes any day that the resort you want to visit is open during the 2017/2018 season. Holidays are included!
For M.A.X. Pass Add-on Passes - If your qualifying season pass has blackout dates and you purchase a M.A.X. Pass Add-on, the Add-on is not valid at your home mountain(s) and thus cannot be used on blackout dates. For example, the New England Silver Pass has blackout dates on select weekends and holidays. The M.A.X. Pass Add-on does not provide additional days at Sunday River, Sugarloaf, and Loon, and so cannot be used on the blackout days.
How many days on the slopes do we get with the M.A.X. Pass™?
You get 5 days on the slopes at EACH of the 44 M.A.X. Pass participating ski resorts. That’s 220 total days of skiing or riding for the 2017/2018 season.
What is the M.A.X. Pass™ Add-On? What passes qualify?
Guests that have purchased a qualifying season pass listed below are eligible to purchase the M.A.X. Pass Add-on. Discounted or reduced rate passes do not qualify.
Guests who purchase the M.A.X. Pass as an Add-on to their qualifying Season Pass must maintain their existing Season Pass for the duration of the 2017/2018 season. The M.A.X. Pass Add-on provides 5 days at each participating resort, except for the resort(s) accessed with the qualifying season pass.
This holds true for multi-mountain qualifying passes. For example, if a guest purchases a Rocky Mountain Super Pass Plus, they may purchase a M.A.X. Pass Add-on. The M.A.X. Pass Add-on provides 5 days of skiing/riding at each M.A.X. resort except Steamboat, Winter Park, Copper Mountain, Crested Butte, Alyeska, and Eldora. A qualifying pass must be purchased by each person to be eligible for the M.A.X. Pass Add-on.
Only one M.A.X. Pass Add-on can be purchased for each qualifying pass. For example, if a father has a Boyne Gold Pass, he can buy a M.A.X. Pass Add-on for himself. He cannot purchase one for his son or daughter unless he/she have his/her own Boyne Gold Pass purchased in their own names.
The purchase of qualifying season passes will be validated for all M.A.X. Pass Add-on purchases. If you have not purchased a valid qualifying pass, you will not be issued an Add-on pass.
