SkiButternut.com Window Lift Ticket Prices are a Rip off

Last Sunday took the family to Skibutternut in Great Barrington.

Paid $240.00 - ticket window price: $60/ea for 4 tickets.

Learned that afternoon, most skiers paid;

$30 - $40 for the same Sunday ticket Big 32% Difference.

Here's how the Skibutternut,com scam works.

=================================

Ski Butternut has an inflated retail window ticket price.

Ski Butternut then Discounts from this Inflated Price.

Ski butternut ticket pricing has nothing to do with Costs or Value.

It’s a tricky Marketing Scheme – plain & simple!

I learned they’re many groups you can join for FREE

and get a $40 ski butternut weekend ski ticket.

(32% discount). Wait there’s more…

There are many gas stations on route to Ski Butternut

giving away (with $10 gas purchase)

Free (BOGO) Buy One - Get One Vouchers

(50% discount) $30 ticket.

Paying Ski Butternut’s Window Price is a “Terrible Family Rip-off”!

== Butternut IS NOT A Family Friendly Mountain ==

This SCAM reminds me of the Bankrupt Retailer

Circuit City. They too had a similar Pricing Scam.

Circuit City routinely jacked up prices on popular items.

Merchandise sat cold on shelves for weeks.

Then Circuit City would run a big 30% - 50% Sale.

Innocent buyers thought they got a great deal.

In reality, Circuit City gave them a raw deal.

When buyers found out they were ripped off

They stopped shopping Circuit City.

SkiButternut.com Tickets are really worth $25 - $35.

Butternut is a cute hill not a real ski mountain.

If you Pay Butternut's Full Window Price and you got Ripped Off.

Skibutternut's Marketing Manager, Matt Sawyer defended

his inflated weekend rates, claims “we give great value”.

I dispute this, and compared Matt Sawyer’s claim to:

A Belleayre Ski Ticket - only $47 from liftopia.com

Click Here: http://tinyurl.com/b46xg3b

Stats:

Belleayre is 4x Larger than SkiButternut.com (more trails)

Belleayre ski lifts are faster and newer then Ski Butternut’s.

Belleayre has a longer ski season: Nov – April

$60 vs $47 Belleayre offers 22% more family value.
