This year Baldy dug deep into the data and went out to its guests asking them how to make Baldy Mt. an even better experience, how to make it more affordable and in the end, how to get more folks out on the mountain having fun with their family and friends.
One area that was looked at closely was the age of Baldy Season Passholders in comparison with the demographics of the regional area they largely come from.
“The data told us several very clear stories,” explained Marketing Coordinator Andrew Zwicker. “First, our single biggest age category by a wide margin for pass holders was the 15-19 year-old category. That was followed up with an 85% drop among 20-24 year olds, suggesting a strong need for a student pass to keep those teens skiing, even if just on weekends and holidays home from school.”
The second thing noticed was a real need for a pass to help parents of young kids get a little more me-time or “Ski-time.” We know early parent-hood is a huge challenge on all fronts and wanted to making it easier and more affordable to keep skiing and riding during the early parent years.
“We then reality checked our assumptions from the data with our real guests through a series of social media questions that got an enthusiastic and thoughtful response from many of our guests,” added Zwicker.
The end result was a whole new set of pass-holder benefits, partnership with other mountains offering free skiing, easier ways to pay, new pricing categories, new passes for students, passes specific to parents and families and the introduction of a flex pass.
“We’re a community-based mountain and our guests are very passionate and knowledgeable about their home mountain, so when we want to try new things, we start by asking the community what they want,” explained General Manager Andy Foster.
