There is big news this week out of one of Colorado Ski Country’s most unique ski areas, Silverton Mountain. The area is keeping it old school and bringing back the ½ price unguided season pass sale for only $399. Need a better deal? The unbelievable season pass deal also comes with ½ price heli drops (standby), an additional 15 free ski days at other Colorado Resorts (five days at A Basin, five days at Monarch, and five at Loveland) and $79 guided skiing (standby).

Starting August 1, the price increases to $499 and once a predetermined limit is reached the price returns to the regular $799.
