Buy discount lift tickets at LiftTickets.com

Liftopia.com is not the only online discount lift ticket sales outlet for Colorado ski resorts. LiftTickets.com sells discounted ski passes to many ski resorts around the state.

To find current deals go to http://www.lifttickets.com/ and scroll down to the section where is says 'Find Deals by State'. Click on 'Colorado'

Right now the only deals available are at Ski Cooper and SolVista Basin. Probably more dates will open up after the new year.

Most Colorado ski resorts blackout the major holidays for coupons and special discount passes. Regular season passes should be good to go all season.

The Snow Day Pass returns to Copper Mountain for 2011-12

The 2011-12 Copper Mountain Snow Day Pass went on sale yesterday on their website. The price is the same as last season - a measly $99.

Anytime the Copper Mountain website reports 4" of fresh powder, the pass is valid. During last season's wild La Nina weather - Snow Day Pass holders got the workout.

The pass is only available in limited quantities and for a limited time. Sneeze and you may miss the chance to buy this gem.

The Snow Day Pass has no blackout days and holders are guaranteed at least two snow days - Super Bowl Sunday and Closing Day. The pass is also loaded with two $69 friends & family tickets.

The pass is a non-transferrable picture pass and cannot be resold. The pass is only valid at Copper Mountain.

More details at http://www.coppercolorado.com/winter/landingpages/snowdaypass

One detail - Copper Mountain only allows skiing and snowboarding. Skibikers you'll need to head to Winter Park Resort, A-Basin, Keystone, Eldora Mountain Resort, Snowmass, or Durango Mountain Resort.
