A new ski pass which claims to be Europe’s biggest will begin selling passes on 12th June at 12.12 Central European Time.

Named the ‘SnowPass Card’ and officially a ‘digital partner’ of the International Ski Federation (FIS), the pass lists just over 100 ski areas in nine countries as included for the 2019-20 pass.

The first 50,000 passes are being sold at a discounted price of 395 Euros, rising to 895 Euros after 50,000 passes have been sold.

For children born between 2007 and 2015 the reduced price for early bookers is  345 Euros  (instead of 695 Euros).

Among the better-known ski areas included are Sierra Nevada in Spain; Les Orres and Isola 2000 in France, Galtur in Austria, Aprica in Italy and Saas Grund in Switzerland.

Ski areas in Germany, Poland, Portugal and Slovenia are also included.

Interested skiers are invited to make a no-commitment registration of interest in purchasing one of the discounted passes before they go on sale.

Multi-resort season passes are increasingly popular in North America with the Epic and more recent Icon passes amongst others and Europe also has a number of season passes covering dozens of areas in each of France, Italy, Austria and Switzerland but most are largely restricted to one country.
