by G. Kunkel

Colorado & Wyoming College Students, Faculty, and Staff - the Wells Fargo 2 for 1 Rocky Mountain Super Pass Sales started July 1, 2011. This is possibly the best ski season pass deal for college students in the state of Colorado. New this year - Wyoming college students are now eligible too.

With the voucher, eligible people can purchase two Rocky Mountain Super Passes for the price of one. Students must be full-time registered enrolled students and purchase a qualifying package at a Wells Fargo location.

The Rocky Mountain Super Passes can be upgraded to Rocky Mountain Super Pass Plus passes for $100. Those who are not a college student in Colorado or Wyoming can still get a discounted Rocky Mountain Super Pass - but you'll need to purchase them in person.

It's Labor Day Weekend - The traditional time to buy or renew your Colorado ski season pass

Labor Day Weekend is when Colorado ski resorts put the big push on to sell season passes for the upcoming ski season. Nothing has changed for the 2011-12 ski season.

Powder Daze has already started and the sale of Colorado Ski Country USA Gems Cards started August 17th. The real madness begins Labor Day Weekend.

Ski passes, 4-packs, and 4 passes will all be on sale. They will be offered at the best prices for the next 2 weeks and then the prices generally start to rise. Some products are no longer offered for sale after October - especially the 4 passes to Copper Mountain and Winter Park.

There are new products from Vail Resorts with the standard lineup. The Colorado Pass has been dumped and is now the Epic Local's Pass. I think you can buy it online too. It's heavily blacked out during holiday periods so don't buy it if you plan to use it during a national holiday.

Anyway, Sniagrab, Powder Daze, and Ski Rex all start Labor Day Weekend. If you are going to Taste of Colorado in downtown Denver, just walk down to Sniagrab.
