Ticket to Ride: 5th and 6th Grade Passport

by Mountain Correspondent on Dec.05, 2013, under Colorado Skiing, Resorts

Ever wish you could be a kid again? This will definitely make you jealous: Colorado Ski Country offers 5th graders 60 days of FREE skiing and riding!!! That’s for Zero! Zilch! Nada! Over 20 Colorado resorts–like Copper Mountain, Telluride, Steamboat and more–offer 5th graders three full days of fun as part of the renowned Passport program. And, after kids graduate from fifth grade, no one’s left hanging.

6th graders get a pretty awesome deal, too, receiving four days of skiing and riding at all 20 member resorts for just $99–that’s 80 days of fun! That amounts to $1.24 per day. That’s kind of ridiculous. There’s also a rockin’ deal for kiddos who have never had the chance to try skiing or snowboarding: The First Class Program provides one free lesson in January to 5th Grade Passport who have never skied or snowboarded. Resorts have excellent ski and snowboard schools, where taking a lesson from a pro will help your child get better faster.

What a perfect excuse to partake in the Coloradan tradition of skiing and riding!

I recently got the chance to meet up with Colorado Ski Country’s esteemed 5th grade blogger, Emma, and hang out with her rad fifth grade posse. Check out all the fun we had at Copper Mountain, all thanks to the Passport program:

While we can’t turn back time, we can at least tell every 5th and 6th grader you bump into to sign up for a year of FREE skiing and riding. Learn more about the Passport program here: http://www.coloradoski.com/passport.

You did a good deed.

Best of the Southwest get dumped on

by Mountain Correspondent on Dec.14, 2012, under Colorado Skiing, General, Resorts

We all knew this storm meant business. I knew it, my fellow skiers and snowboarders knew it, and this crazed-looking guy from the weather channel definitely knew it:

This storm's gonna be intense! Just look at the size of the 'L'!

This storm's gonna be intense! Just look at the size of the 'L'!

Sure, there was a big winter storm headed for Colorado, but where was it going to hit, and when? Living in the southwest corner of the state, it’s often feast-or-famine; when the front range ski resorts are getting pounded, sometimes we’re dry as a bone. But my fears vanished when I saw the next image from our deranged, bald meteorologist.

Arapahoe Basin Launches “Double Down” Pass

by Colorado Snow Sensei on Sep.01, 2012, under Insider Secrets

Arapahoe Basin Launches “Double Down” Pass
The 2-season pass is first of its kind in the ski industry
ARAPAHOE BASIN, Colo. – Arapahoe Basin Ski Area (A-Basin) announced the launch of the Double Down pass, the ski industry’s first two-season pass product. With the Double Down pass, skiers and riders have the advantage of locking in the pass price for two seasons at a great rate without worrying about a price increase.
This adult two-season pass is valid for unlimited skiing and riding at Arapahoe Basin for the 2012-13 and 2013-14 seasons. The Double Down pass costs $499 and saves regular A-Basin adult season pass holders at least $99 over two years.
“With an average of 233 ski days per season, our A-Basin guests can now get two very long Colorado ski seasons at a very affordable price,” said Alan Henceroth, Arapahoe Basin COO.
The Double Down also affords its pass holders the same great on-mountain benefits as the regular single-season A-Basin pass. These include 10 percent off food and beverage purchases as well as purchases made in the Arapahoe Sports retail shop. A-Basin pass holders also receive one $45 half-day class lesson with the A-Basin Snowsports School (Friday through Sunday), $10 off performance tuning (valid all season), one unguided day at Silverton, and discounted pricing on lift tickets for friends and family.
Interested skiers and riders are encouraged to buy the Double Down soon, as it is only available until December 31, 2012. Pass holders who have already purchased a single-season A-Basin pass can upgrade to the Double Down for $200.

Single-season A-Basin passes are also on sale: $299 for adults; $209 for youth ages 15-18; and $139 for children ages 6-14. Seniors 70+ ski for $75.
Plan on making mountain trips a family affair? A-Basin offers the Family Pass incentive: purchase three or more season passes for your immediate family and receive one $10 A-Basin gift card per pass! The gift card can be used at any of our on-mountain restaurants or retailers.
All A-Basin passes qualify for the A-Basin Charge option. For more information about this program, please visit arapahoebasin.com/passes.
While all A-Basin season passes are non-refundable and non-transferrable, A-Basin is now offering pass insurance through Travel Guard. Pass insurance, available for purchase along with the season pass, allows skiers and riders to purchase their two-season pass with the confidence that they can be reimbursed if either of their seasons is cut short.
Pass insurance is priced at 6 percent of the total pass price. Pass holders have 30 days from the purchase of the pass or until the first day of ski season (whichever comes first) to opt in to the pass insurance program.
All A-Basin pass products are available at the mountain, online or by calling 888-ARAPAHOE (272-7246). You can also purchase all of our pass products this Labor Day weekend (8/31-9/3) at Sniagrab at the Sports Authority at 1000 Broadway in Denver. Prices subject to change; buy now to lock in the best rates for this season.
Situated on 960 acres of rugged peaks, spruce forests and natural, rolling terrain, Arapahoe Basin Ski Area boasts the longest ski and ride season in Colorado. A-Basin, known as “The Legend,” combines quality amenities with affordable pricing and a laid-back atmosphere that locals and vacationers of all ages can enjoy. This winter, elevate your experience at Arapahoe Basin.
