For the most part, student ski passes do not exist in the state of Colorado. Instead, Colorado ski resorts sell ski passes by age. Ski pass age groups include: child, teen, young adult, adult, and senior. Each ski resort individually determines the age brackets for pass sales.
Discount Colorado ski passes are best purchased between April and Labor Day.
The student ski passes that do exist are college student passes, the 5th Grade Passport, and the 6th Grade Passport. If you need a college student pass, it's best to purchase it in September.
5th and 6th Grade Passports applications are usually available from Colorado Ski Country USA in September. The application is free and you don't have to be a resident of Colorado. Applications must be done online and are not available for pickup. Here's how to apply.
Some of the best ski pass deals in Colorado for children, teens, and young adults (ages 6-22) include Loveland Ski Area, the Teen Summit Value Pass, the Rocky Mountain Super Pass Plus College Pass, and the Aspen Classic College & Child/Youth Passes.
Most Colorado ski resorts sell early season discount ski season passes and discount college passes to full time registered four year college students. Check for eligibility and pass sale deadlines.
