Hello skiers and riders of the southeast.

Hopefully the anticipation of a new season that is just a few weeks away is not too much of a burden on you. I can tell that my internal skiing beast is starving for stimulation, and Mother Nature seems to be on board too, especially given how much cooler the temperatures have been lately.

By now most of you have done some planning for when and where you will be, but perhaps there are some open spots on your agenda, and you are still doing the research to determine that next “what if” decision.

The internet can be a very big and overwhelming thing at times. I even felt some of the anguish while collecting and consolidating the information shown below. However, that animosity was overcome by remembering that the purpose of this project is to provide necessary information in one spot for all of you to consider.

Please note a few things about this chart prior to viewing it:

  • I obtained these figures from each resort’s individual websites, and not all of them were updated with current figures.
  • Some of these numbers were very easy to find on a simple chart while others required me to open up a calendar and choose specific dates in order to get a price.
  • Information in is information out. These findings were conducted independently, are subject to change, might have an error somewhere, and are meant to be a worst-case scenario guidance (AKA the Maximum window rate).

Let me start with the question marks (???) that appear in certain spots on this chart. The reason for this is because there was either nothing provided, or it was from the previous season.

Of course, this chart is not a one size fits all kind of scenario. There are no universal reporting templates for all of them in which everything is perfectly presented, so here are a few specific bullet points to consider also.

Appalachian Ski Mountain:

  • 8 Hour flex is eight consecutive hours during the 9 AM to 5 PM timeframe.
  • Super Session is 9 AM to 10 PM or Midnight with its own lift ticket rate.
  • Night Skiing is from 5 PM to 10 PM or Midnight.
  • Juniors, seniors, and students have their own lift ticket rates.

Beech Mountain Resort:

  • Sessions are available in 4, 8, and 12-hour increments.
  • Night skiing is available, but their rates were not published.
  • In the previous years they have had midweek night session discounts for men, women, and students. Hopefully that will happen again, but please check their website and social media outlets during the season for more details.

Cataloochee Ski Area:

Hatley Pointe (formerly Wolf Ridge):

  • Nothing has been published yet, but their social media boasts about their investments which will greatly improve the experience.
  • https://www.hatleypointe.com/

Sapphire Valley Ski Resort:

  • They have discounted Amenity rates, which they state are for property owners, a homeowners’ guest, a timeshare owner, or a lodging guest on a resort property with a valid Amenity Card.
  • VRBO Rentals: The VRBO listing should state Amenity Card Info and/or Amenity Availability – if not, please contact the VRBO Property Owner.

Ober Mountain:

  • Non-holiday Sundays are less than Saturdays with a rate of $69.
  • Night sessions on Monday through Friday are from 5 PM to 9 PM.
  • Saturday and holidays appear to be a full session from 9 AM to 9 PM.
  • Sunday night sessions are five hours long and go from 1 PM to 6 PM.
  • Indy Pass is valid at this location.

Canaan Valley Resort:

Snowshoe Mountain:

Timberline Mountain:

  • Their website is different from the rest. They list the lift ticket cost at $95 for ages 13 & up, but there are a few drop downs for various $10 worth of credits to their Timberline Mountain Card.
  • “Take advantage of our Timberline Mountain Credits and use the credits on food, drinks, retail items, lessons, or future lift tickets and rentals!  Depending on how you spend your day on the slopes, you can earn up to $40 in credits per visit!”
  • Curious if that means you must pay the $95 up front and then get some kind of return back in the form of concessions and merchandise only?
  • Save $5 on each Timberline Mountain Card if you purchase lift tickets online.
  • $69 lift ticket for Child 12 & Under/Senior Age 60+/Military

Winterplace Ski Resort:

  • Night skiing is from 4 PM to Close.
  • Midweek prices were not listed on a chart, but when I used the calendar on their website and selected multiple midweek dates, they came up at $75.
  • https://www.winterplace.com/lift-tickets

Bryce Resort:

  • Had to use the calendar on their website and pick random dates to obtain this information.
  • Indy Pass is valid at this location.
  • https://bryceresort.com/winter/ski-and-snowboard

Massanutten Resort:

  • “Tickets for the 2023-24 winter season will be available for purchase starting November 8, 2023 (for dates starting December 16, 2023)”
  • “Early Season tickets will be available for purchase 24 hours prior to Opening Day.”
  • Indy Pass is valid at this location.
  • https://www.massresort.com/play/snow-sports/hours-rates/

The Omni Homestead Resort:

Wintergreen Resort:

Wisp Resort:

  • NO prices have been displayed as of yet.
  • When prompted to select a date and then see availability, their page provides only the costs to their season pass package options at this time.
  • https://www.wispresort.com/Lift-Tickets/

So yeah, that is a lot of information to digest at once. We get it.

Obviously, there are other factors to consider, such as your geographic proximity to the slopes, that will aid in deciding one way or another.

However, if there is flexibility on your end, you might be able to get some of these random day trips in with ease. Going midweek or at night, when available, always will be more bang for the buck and generally less crowded. Beware that any sudden blasts from the Arctic will bring out the powder hounds though, which we hope will happen often.

Nonetheless, keep us in mind whenever you need additional information such as the open terrain status, base depths, and live camera shots. All of that, plus much more, will be here at skisoutheast.com every day during the 2023-2024 ski season.
