The increasing popularity of multi-resort passes has ushered in an era of reasonably priced passes that offer access to unlimited days at multiple resorts. Vail Resort’s Epic Pass provides access to 70 resorts and Alterra’s Ikon Pass 50.

But some people don’t travel, they live in a ski town and ski there all winter. What good is access to 70 resorts when you only ski one?! Those people need a good old-fashioned season pass for their home mountain.

You’d think this would save them money—it must be cheaper to buy a season pass to one resort, right? Nope. Below, thanks to the hard work done by The Storm Skiing Journal & Podcast, are the ten most expensive season passes (if you want to geek out on ski passes, check out his phenomenal chart that itemizes every lift pass coalition in America.)

  1. The big sky season pass at that price, does not include the tram that you are featuring in the photo
