SAP, the La Plagne lift pass company have launched their 2011-12 lift pass prices.
Most passes have seen an increase of roughly 2%, which in real terms means, for example, that a 6 day adult Paradiski pass will increase from €249 to €254 for the forthcoming season.
The resort is working hard to attract, and keep, more families this year with no change to the family pass price which will stay at €799 for a 6 day Paradiski pass for 2 adults and 2 children. They are also planning on introducing a free kids liftpass offer over Christmas and Easter, giving one free child Decouvert or Paradiski pass when the parents purchase the same pass.
The 2011-12 winter season will also see a major organisational change, with the deposits for the physical cards themselves being scrapped. Starting from the beginning of next season, the lift pass office will provide the physical cards free of charge to anyone purchasing a lift pass. The aim behind this change is to streamline the system, and to reduce the workload of the lift pass company and the tour operators who sell the passes.
The change has been mostly welcomed, although some have concerns for the environmental impact if an increasing number of passes are being used. The lift pass offices will still re-use all passes that are returned.
