Have you skied a Western Slope resort recently? If not, this season is the time to make sure you catch up. Coinciding with the annual launch of fall pre-season pass sales, Powderhorn Mountain Resort recently announced three new partnerships with other major Colorado resorts and resort operators: Aspen Skiing Company (ASC); Steamboat Ski Resort and Telluride Ski Resort.
Each partnership offers unique features, showcasing skiing and riding opportunities across the state. All partnership products are available exclusively with the purchase of a non-transferable Powderhorn Mountain Resort season pass. Fall pre-season pass sales for Powderhorn began on Saturday, Sept. 1 and run through Thursday, Nov. 15, 2012, which will be the best absolute price point for the 2012/13 season.

The partnership with ASC provides Powderhorn passholders with an exclusive opportunity to purchase a “Classic Pass” product, valid for skiing and riding at all four ASC resorts: Aspen, Snowmass, Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk. The Classic Pass features a four-day (Adult $204, Kid/College $169) option that allow guests to ski and ride for less than $50 per day, in addition to discounts on extension days and summer lift access.
“Aspen/Snowmass is excited to partner with Powderhorn to provide Western Slope skiers and snowboarders with an amazing combination of mountains and value under one season pass purchase,” said Christian Knapp, vice president of marketing for Aspen Skiing Company.
The Steamboat Ski Resort partnership provides Powderhorn season passholders with the exclusive opportunity to purchase the “Steamboat 5 Pack” pass product for $149. The nontransferable Steamboat add-on pass provides five unrestricted days of skiing and riding valid any day of the 2012/2013 season at Steamboat.
The partnership with Telluride Ski Resort allows Powderhorn passholders to purchase a three-day Telluride pass for $169 (days do not have to be consecutive) with a 20 percent discount off window rates on additional days.
