Each year here at Source Magazine we take the price of the Portes du Soleil winter lift pass and compare it against the price per skiable kilometre of other big ski domains. The PDS pass always comes out on top, consistently providing the best value for money in the Alps.
And if you live here for the full season, or ski several times in the Portes du Soleil, your winter just got a whole heap cheaper.
In a move which it hopes will inspire more young people to take up skiing (or indeed ski more often), The Portes du Soleil have introduced two new season lift passes for this coming winter season.
PDS Young Person’s Pass
For those of you aged 26 and under on 30th November 2017, your season pass will cost just €370 (or 400CHF) this winter. You must buy your pass online before 30th November, they’ll be available from the beginning of August on the PDS website.
This ridiculously cheap season pass is likely to be a huge win with seasonaires heading to Morzine, Les Gets or Avoriaz this winter. Similarly, if you enjoy multiple ski holidays in the area each winter and are used to paying between €230 for 6 days on a youth pass or €255 for 6 days on an adult pass, you’ll save big time when you buy the Young Persons’ Pass.

PDS Children’s Pass
Children under the age of 10 years enjoy a FREE PDS season pass with the purchase of one adult season PDS pass during the Winter 17/18 season. Yes, you read that correctly. You must buy your passes on the PDS website before 30th November and your child must be under the age of 10 on this day to get a free pass.

Ski Area Exchange Vouchers
We’re all used to getting those precious little tickets to ski in other European ski resorts with the purchase of our season lift passes. These will continue and during Winter 17/18 will include 5 free day tickets for the 4 Valleys ski area in addition to 5 free day passes for Aletsch Arena. You’ll need to buy your passes before 30th November 2017.
Is it too early to start the Winter 16/17 countdown clock?
UPDATE: Here’s the official announcement from the Portes du Soleil regarding the special lift passes for this season. It’s not currently available on their website so we thought we’d share it here!
