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.
Crested Butte Mountain Resort (CBMR) has just announced its appreciation for everyone who skis or snowboards in Colorado, regardless of which mountain is “home”. From now until March 6, 2013 anyone with a Colorado ski resort pass can ski the legendary slopes of Crested Butte for only $59 per day. In addition, lodging deals are available, beginning at only $59 per person per night at the Grand Lodge and $79 per person per night at the Elevation Hotel & Spa, plus resort fees and taxes.
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:
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 Ski Area (A-Basin) recently 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. (continue reading…)
In an unprecedented move, four of the premier independent mountain destinations in the West have created an alliance to form the Mountain Collective™, offering a groundbreaking pass for the 2012-13 season: the Mountain Collective™ Pass.

Sunlight Mountain Resort season passes for the 2012-13 season are on sale now. When season passes are purchased by August 15, 2012 buyers will receive a free Powder Pass with their purchase. Powder Pass holders are able to load the lifts 30 minutes earlier than everyone else when Sunlight receives 6” or more of snow. That means they get to hit all of the powder stashes first! It’s important to purchase season passes now because once the powder pass is not included with the pass, it goes up to $50 and $70 after September 15th, 2012. (continue reading…)
Oh yeah, it’s getting to be that time of year again. Resorts are starting to announce their pass prices and put their passes on sale. Colorado Ski Country USA launched the Gems Card earlier this week, and today Aspen/Snowmass announced season pass structure and pricing for the 2012-2013 season. Passes go on sale Monday, August 13. The Premier Pass is loaded with more benefits than ever and the Classic Pass will be available as a four and seven-day product once again.
“It feels like there is some pent up excitement for powder after last winter,” said Jeff Hanle, director of public relations, Aspen Skiing Company. “It will be exciting to return to winter as we know it and see our passholders out in force. We’ve worked hard to develop a selection of passes that fit everyone’s needs.” (continue reading…)
