The sooner you buy, the better is the price
Ski passes have flexible prices also this winter. Are you asking what it is about? Flexible (dynamic) ski pass prices change in the course of the winter season based on several factors. They are not the same all season long. The best is to plan skiing in advance and buy ski passes comfortably online on gopass.travel. The sooner you buy, the better is the price.
What factors influence the prices?
- Date of purchase
- Ski resort turnout
- Date of skiing
- Day of the week
It’s a system that determines ski pass selling prices based on customers’ demand.
Why do we use flexible pricing?
Flexible pricing is a tool that keeps the turnout in individual ski resorts similar during the whole season. It helps skiers avoid overcrowded resorts and buy online ski passes at the best prices in advance. If you buy a ski pass online in advance, you will be rewarded with the best price and a lot of other advantages that the Gopass membership offers.
The number of clients in individual resorts can be estimated very precisely so the prices in the course of the season are determined in accordance with our aim to have similar numbers of people everywhere. The ski passes cost less on days with lower turnouts, which should motivate clients to visit our resorts on those days.
Which ski resorts use flexible pricing?
Flexible prices have already been introduced in five ski resorts – Jasná, Tatranská Lomnica and Štrbské Pleso in Slovakia, Špindlerův Mlýn, Ještěd and Monínec in the Czech Republic, Szczyrk in Poland and Mölltaler Gletscher, Ankogel Malnitz and Muttereralm Innsbruck in the Austria. Each of these resorts has different flexible prices that depend on several factors which are important there. In the future, more resorts will join the Gopass family, which means skiers will meet flexible prices more often.

How much do ski passes cost in ski resorts and at self-service Gopass Tickets machines?
The prices in ski resorts are always higher than online prices. By shopping on gopass.travel, you can save up to 30%. The price can be better even on the day of skiing if you buy your ski pass online, not at a ticket office in the resort. You can do that as a Gopass member but also as a non-member. If you are a new customer, pick up your topped-up ski pass at an automated Ticket Point in the resort. Ski passes cost less at self-service Gopass Tickets machines when compared to regular ticket offices, but online prices on Gopass are always the best.
Can a ski pass purchased online be cancelled?
If there is a change in your plans, you won’t lose the money that you paid for your ski pass. The amount can be returned in the form of Gopass credit at a small fee and used later to buy another ski pass or service. It’s important for us to see you satisfied and enjoying yourself.
If the weather gets worse and you have already bought a ski pass, it can be cancelled one day before and the returned Gopass credit can be used to buy a ski pass for another day. Or if you are staying in Slovakia and have bought a 2-day or a multi-day ski pass, it can serve also as a Tatralandia or Bešeňová water park ticket. With Gopass, you always save money and will never lose it.
How to save when buying a ski pass on Gopass?
If you plan a winter skiing holiday with all your family in spring, use the advantage of flexible pricing and shop in advance. Ski passes can be purchased for any day when individual resorts are open and you can ski at a better price even during school holidays if you buy your ski pass soon enough.
Another way of saving is buying ski passes for days when ski pistes are half-empty. The prices are much lower then. Which days are we talking about? The answer is simple – selected days in January when there is enough snow and the quality of skiing is high.
How was flexible pricing accepted by customers?
Flexible prices were introduced in the 2018/19 season, so we could observe the development for some time already. It’s safe to say that a lot of our customers have moved to the online environment and a great deal of ski passes is sold before their validity dates. These facts prove that flexible pricing was a good idea and we will continue with it in favour of our customers.
