2012 - 2013 Colorado Costco lift ticket availability

by G. Kunkel

Lift tickets for some Colorado ski areas are available for the 2012 - 2013 ski season.  Availability varies by state and from store to store.  The price can vary too.


The Costco in Thornton, Colorado has a three-pack of Eldora Mountain Resort lift tickets for around $149.   It seems Costco's in other areas of the USA have them for $119.  Which Costco locations are offering them and their price is a mystery.  They are not listed on the website.

Durango Mountain Resort in Durango, Colorado also has their tickets available in some of the Dallas-Fort Worth area stores.   The store locations and price are unknown.  Again, not listed on the website.

No sightings yet for Arapahoe Basin in Denver Metro stores.  Give it time, they may yet appear.

If you want to find what your local store is selling, you are going to have to call them.

Don't hold your breath for popular or destination Colorado ski resorts to offer discount tickets in Costco.   Places like Vail, Aspen, Steamboat, and Telluride never sell them in discount outlets.  They don't need to.

Tip a great ski or snowboard lesson.

$199 Steamboat Discount Pass in 2013

For a limited time Steamboat Ski Resort is offering a three day lift ticket pass for $199.   The 50th Anniversary Pass is celebrating the ski areas' fifty years in business.  If you've ever wanted a high season discount pass for the 'Boat', this is your best bet.

The pass is valid any three days from January 21 - February 15, 2013.

The pass must be purchased 48 hours in advance and is non-refundable.   There is a limit of one pass per person.  Quantities are limited.

The current lift ticket window rate is around $109/day.   Sixty six dollars/day sounds much better.  This deal was supposed to end December 31, 2012 so this promotion will probably end soon.

Telluride Crested Butte Ultimate 6 Pass

Telluride and Crested Butte now have a combo discount lift ticket pass for the 2012- 2013 ski season.   I can't believe it!

These two ski resorts joined forces and now have a pass that is valid for three days at each place for $439.  Considering that a high season window rate lift ticket is going to run over $100, this offers significant saving.  If three days isn't enough, the Ultimate 6 allows the holder to purchase additional days at 20% off.

This offer was originally supposed to expire on December 15, 2012 but it looks it's been extended.  The price jumped up from $399 to $439.  The pass can still be purchased online at Liftopia.com but quantities are limited.

The Ultimate 6 Pass is a picture pass and is non-transferable.  Pass can only be reloaded after all six days are used.  It's valid throughout the 2012-13 season.

To get the pass:
  1. Visit Liftopia.com
  2. Buy the pass and printout the voucher
  3. In Telluride: visit either the Mountain Village or Coonskin Season Pass Office
  4. In Crested Butte: visit the Adventure Center Season Pass Office in Mountaineer Square
  5. Get your picture taken and sign a waiver
  6. Go skiing, snowboarding, or skibiking*.   *only at Telluride
I don't know when this offer expires.
