The 2014 - 2015 Wells Fargo 2 for 1 Adult Rocky Mountain Super Pass coming in August

by G. Kunkel

Wells Fargo will be offering their BOGO Rocky Mountain Super Pass ski pass deal for the upcoming ski season. It will only be available for a limited time.

One can get a voucher at a participating Colorado Wells Fargo location when one opens up a new consumer checking account between August 1, 1014 and October 31, 2014.

Existing customers can get one by referring a new customer. It is available to students, faculty, and staff at a two-year or four-year college, university, or trade school.

 It doesn't look like the deal is open to Wyoming college students this year.

Both persons must be Wells Fargo customers. The voucher must then be redeemed by December 19, 2014.

For an additional $100, one can upgrade this voucher to a RMSP+ pass. You'll then get six unrestricted days at Steamboat. Since a one day ticket goes for over $120, this is a real money saver.

The pass itself is good for unlimited skiing, snowboarding, and skibiking at Winter Park Resort. Just skiing and snowboarding at Copper Mountain.

 Get more information on this pass at the Wells Fargo webpage.

Eldora Mountain Resort is now on the Rocky Mountain Super Pass Plus

by G. Kunkel

There's a new reason to buy a RMSP+ season pass.   One can get unlimited skiing, snowboarding, and skibiking at Eldora Mountain Resort.

Eldora joins Winter Park and Copper Mountain for unrestricted, unlimited days.  The pass also includes six unrestricted days at Steamboat and three days at Crested Butte.

The price of this pass is currently $509.  Expect this price to increase over the summer and then become unavailable for purchase sometime in November.  It has already had one price increase since March.

Eldora is only on the RMSP+ and not available on the RMSP.

For those living near Boulder, this is a great option.   Sometimes Eldora gets upslope snowstorms that miss all the other ski resorts.   One can also get away for a few hours in the day without braving the Interstate 70 traffic.

Eldora is just a 30 minute drive up Boulder Canyon.  They allow skiing, snowboarding, and skibikes. 

They do enforce the use of leashes on snowboards and skibikes.  It's still a law on the books in Colorado.

A great writeup on this development was in the Boulder Daily Camera.

Eldora Mountain Resort is now Super Plus instead of Epic.

Vail lift ticket prices Sunday April 13, 2014

by G. Kunkel

 Here's another reason to buy a Epic Season Pass product in Colorado.   Prices really don't go down at Vail even at the end of the ski season.

I snapped this picture on Sunday while attending a Rocky Mountain-PSIA clinic.   I used my SIA Epic Pass to save PSIA some money.


While conditions weren't the best on Sunday.  Monday was a great powder day.   Too bad I was at home.

While prices have edged up recently for the 2014/15 passes, one can still buy them at a great price.   They can be purchased in the pass office at Lionshead (where this picture was taken), by phone, or online at snow.com.

Depending upon the pass one purchases, they are valid at various Vail Resorts locations:  Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone, Canyons, Heavenly, Northstar, Kirkwood, Afton Alps, and Mt Brighton.  It is also valid at Arapahoe Basin which has a marketing agreement with them.

Blackout days may apply depending upon the pass one buys.

Don't be a putz next season.   Buy your Colorado ski season pass now.
