2013 Winter Park Resort Spring Break 4 Pass

Winter Park has been running ads on the radio all day today.  They have fresh snow.

The latest ad just announced a Colorado Spring Break 4 Pass for $199.  That's $50/day for lift ticket.

The pass is valid March 15- 31, 2013 and is non-transferable.

Passes can be purchased online for a limited time at http://www.winterparkresort.com/springbreak

There appear to be no restrictions on the number of passes one can buy.  Pass insurance is available.

It's not mentioned but I suspect this is a picture pass.  No advance purchase policy listed either.

Questions?  Call the Winter Park Resort Season Pass Office.

March Loveland Ski Area Hooky Day Deal 2013

Time for the monthly Hooky Day at Loveland Ski Area.  The March 2013 date is Thursday March 14, 2013.

Those with the coupon get an adult all day lift pass for only $25.  Just visit the 95.7 website that morning and print out the coupon.  Loveland will not print out the coupon for you.  One must present the printout to get the discount.

Can't make March 14th?  Keep the printout.  It's good for a 2 for 1 adult lift ticket deal for the following  two weeks.  Don't wait to print it out either - it's only on the website on the 14th.

The $25 deal is only valid on Hooky Day.  The current window rate is $61.

Loveland is a great alternative to the large commercial joints of Summit County.  Brown bag your lunch or buy the reasonably priced food on-site.   Take three lessons and get a free season pass.

It's right at Exit 216 at the Eisenhower-Johnson Tunnels.

Telluride 3 Day lift ticket pass deal

by G. Kunkel

Run, don't walk to this incredible deal for Telluride lift tickets.  It's a fundraiser for a Colorado Mesa University nursing trip to Nicaragua too.

Get a three day pass to Telluride Ski Resort for only $125.  Yes, an unheard of unbelievable price!

There are no restrictions on this pass either.  Additional days can be purchased for 20% off.  Tickets are normally $106/day there.

Telluride booth at the Denver Ski Expo

There are two ways to buy the pass - in person or online.
  1. Buy at the Telluride ski area Pass Office.  Use promo code CMU125 
  2. Purchase through the Telluride online store at http://telweb.tellurideskiresort.com/eStore/Default.aspx 
    1. Under Passes, choose “All Pass Products” 
    2. Choose “CMU 3 Day pass” Note: $425 discount will apply at check-out 
    3. Follow account set-up directions 
    4. Enter promo code “CMU125” 
That's it.   A portion of the proceeds support the trip.

Then go skiing, snowboarding, or skibiking to your heart's desire.  It doesn't get any cheaper than this at Telluride.

I have no idea how long this deal will last.  It could be gone tomorrow.

Steamboat discount lift tickets 2013

by G. Kunkel

King Soopers doesn't sell lift tickets to Steamboat Ski Resort.  Neither does Safeway or any other Colorado grocery store.  It's a destination ski area in the state and is far away from the competitive Front Range Market.

So where can you get a deal on their tickets?  Very few places.

Lodging

Your best bet is to package your lift pass with your lodging.   Give at least 7 days advance notice so they can buy them for you from the resort.

Buy a Rocky Mountain Super Pass Plus

Anyone can buy these passes online from about mid-March through November.

Buy a 4x40 Pass

These can be purchased online from about March through December.

Buy a Springalicious Pass

It can be purchased online from the Steamboat website.  It's valid the first two weeks in April.

There really are very few discounts available for Steamboat.  If you want one, you'll need to plan your vacation there in the off-season.

More ideas can be found at http://skiing.helium.com/how-to/11967-how-to-get-discount-ski-lift-tickets-to-steamboat-ski-resort

If you want to purchase discount lift tickets to Steamboat in King Soopers, you'll have to use your hot tub time machine. They haven't done that since the mid-1990's.

Eldora Mountain Resort lift tickets in Costco

I spotted 3 packs of discount lift tickets to Eldora in the Superior, Colorado Costco location on Sunday February 17, 2013.

The price for the 3 pack was $119.  That averages to around $40/ticket.

The display is up near the front registers.  It is currently on a corner of the main isle leading up to the cashiers.

The display was rather large.  I don't think they'll be running out of them anytime soon.

Remember: You can always buy lift tickets at their retail store in Boulder, CO. It is located at 2775 Canyon Blvd (28th & Canyon). It's open seven days a week and holidays.  Hours vary.

February 2013 Loveland Ski Area Hooky Day


Get a $25 ski lift ticket to Loveland this Thursday Feb. 7, 2013.

Registered VIP members of 95.7 The Party get that coveted discount coupon for an all-day adult lift pass.  Sign up and then print it out on Hooky Day.

Take the printout to the ticket window to purchase.  It's that simple.

Can't make it?  Print it out anyway.  It's good for a 2 for 1 adult ticket for the following two weeks.

Playing hooky has never been so fun.

Blackout days for the Epic Pass?

There are none for the Epic Pass.   That includes the Epic 7-Day too.

Ski any day you want at Breckenridge, Vail, Beaver Creek, and Keystone in Colorado.  In California, it includes Heavenly, Northstar, and Kirkwood.

Passes with restricted days include the Epic Local Pass, and the Summit Value Pass.  Major holidays such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's, MLK weekend, and President's weekend are out for these passes. One can use the pass to buy discounted lift tickets during those periods.

The passes are sold from around late March to mid-November.   If you are reading this post during ski season, they are no longer for sale.  You'll need to plan ahead for next season.

If you a member of the ski industry (SIA member, NSAA, PSIA, Ski Patrol, Media)  you may be eligible to attend the SIA trade show in Denver, Colorado and pick up an Epic Pass mid-season.  You'll need to be an official badge holding SIA attendee to purchase one.  The trade show is not open to the general public.

I bought the special SIA Snow Show Epic Pass for $259 on Thursday.  It's valid starting February 4, 2013 to the end of the ski season.  It doesn't come with friends and family discounts.  It's still a great deal though.


Information on Vail Resorts Management Company pass blackout days can be found at: http://www.vail.com/faqdetail/Season-Passes/When-and-where-is-my-season-pass-restricted.axd

It's snowed quite a bit the past week here in Colorado.  Time to hit Vail.
