By the end of its second season, the Magic Pass has maintained its cap, and the annual subscription for more than 30 ski resorts is once again positive. At the end of April, more than 3 million ski days were recorded, an increase of 7.7% compared to last year.

Magic Pass, which has just launched its 2019/2020 package with the striking arrival of the Haute-Valais, Leukerbad and Saas-Fee / Saas-Almagell resorts, is making a very promising start to the sale with already more than 121,000 past packages.

Attendance is still rising. The final score of the winter season 2018-2019, counted 3.015 million days skied on all 30 Magic Pass stations. This represents an increase of 7.7% compared to last season at the end of winter and 54% compared to the 2016/2017 season, the last pre-Magic Pass season. In terms of overall turnover, there is an increase of 9% compared to the full 2017-2018 season with a total amount of over CHF 88 million (of which CHF 36.5 million generated by Magic Pass in winter). Each ski resort is again making a positive balance this season with the Magic Pass

Launch of the Magic Pass 2019/2020:

Unveiled on March 13, 2019, the new annual Magic Pass subscription, which now includes more than 1,200 km of pistes in the Valais, Vaud, Friborg, Bern, Neuchâtel and Jura cantons, also met with one-franc success. In just 35 days, the offer sold over 121,000 Passes for a turnover of 46 million. This represents a 33% increase over sales in the same period in 2018.

“With the entry of the new resorts, we were hoping to conquer the Swiss German skiers’ market. Thanks to the extension of the Magic Pass offer, we have tripled the number of subscribers in the German-speaking regions,” said Sébastien Travelletti, member of the Magic Pass administration.
