Lift Tickets

Much of what's below will go away by the time November rolls around.   Consider your plans for the winter with the club and on your own, and scoop up what you need while it's still inexpensive!

Aspens
Aspen is again offering the ClassicPass, which will allow four days at any of their mountains with no blackout dates, for $149.  It's a picture card and must be purchased in person if you didn't have one last year.  You can add additional days at a discount.

If you're joining the club for the February trip and don't plan to get back to Aspen some other time during the season, you may instead want to consider the group tickets, which are priced at $53 per day.  It'll give you some flexibility and save some money over an under-used ClassicPass.

See www.aspensnowmass.com/classicpass for locations and details.

Copper Mountain/Winter Park
Both run now by Intrawest, these two areas have some common elements and some differences in their tickets. 

The TransFour Card permits four days of skiing and riding at the resort of your choice.  Purchasers can use the card themselves, or can give it to friends and family.  It also allows up to four discounted tickets per day for your buddies at the window (price will vary throughout the season) and two coupons for $35 lift tickets.  Christmas week is excluded.  The price for the card for use at Copper is $149, and at Winter Park, $169.

These can be acquired through October 15 at such places as King Soopers while supplies last.  See passwagon.com for details.

The Four Pass is a photo ID that is issued for either Winter Park ($99) or Copper ($84).  You must purchase in person at a location described at passwagon.com.  The rate is more attractive than the TransFour, but it can only be used by the purchaser.  We read that they're trying to stifle internet resales of this bargain-priced card through the use of this photo card.  It has the same restriction over December 26-31, and it also allows purchase of four discounted tickets per day for your others in your group, and two $35 Friends and Family coupons .  Again, no guarantees as to price or availability beyond October 15, but we'd be surprised if they weren't at the Denver Ski Show when we trek down there on November 4th.

Want more?  Then look into the season-long passes.   For both mountains - $369 for the Rocky Mountain Super pass; for Copper, $269; for Winter Park, $279.  Look as passwagon.com or call 800-296-9524

Vail/Beaver Creek et al

The Colorado Pass continues.  It provides unlimited skiing at Keystone, Breck, A-Basin plus 10 days at Vail or Beaver Creek (subject to some date restrictions at Vail/BC - Tks, Xmas, Prez)  The price has inched up to $399, and price is guaranteed through October 15.  Six coupons for friends at discounted rates are loaded on your card. Call (888) 215-3867 or see www.snow.com/passsales/ for more.

The Buddy Pass is $369 and give you all of the above except there's no access to Vail or the Beav.  Why do it?

Keystone/A-Basin 4-pack is a $99 ticket with some restrictions, but you can ski for a discounted rate on those restricted days.   Note: spring break is a restricted time.

SkE Card is a free card, and it offers you the best daily ticket rates at the same five Colorado resorts.  Includes six family and friends coupons, which allows them some savings over window prices (but not the lower rate you'll be paying for yourself.)  Deadline appears to be November 1.  (888) 215-3867 or www.snow.com/passsales/

Learn to Ski Program looks like a great way to get someone new on the mountain.  Includes three beginner ski or board lessons, rental equipment and lift tickets.  Upon completion of the lessons, the purchaser is given a season pass to Keystone, Breck and A-Basin.  Sign up through November 5.   Only $259 !
