Can you buy a ski season pass at King Soopers?

by G. Kunkel

Reward the instructor for a great lesson.


No.  While one can purchase many lift ticket pass products at King Soopers grocery stores in Colorado,  one cannot buy an actual season pass there.

To buy a ski season pass, one will need to visit:
  1. The ski resort when they are selling their passes.
  2. The annual ski show where ski resorts are selling their passes.
  3. Visit the ski resort website when passes are on sale.
  4. Go to a pass sales event being held at a local ski shop.  
 While in the King Soopers, one can also buy a coupon book filled with ski ticket coupons for $10.  Do not expect to find coupons for Breckenridge, Keystone, Vail, or Beaver Creek in the book.  Vail Resorts which owns all these resorts no longer issues coupons.

Buy your season pass before mid-November.  It may no longer be for sale after that.  If your grandmother has heard of the resort, expect the prices to be high and have a sales cutoff date.

2013 -2014 Colorado season pass prices are now increasing

by G. Kunkel

The ski season has started so pass prices are now starting to increase.   If you haven't bought yours yet, you must like wasting money like the government.

Today is the last day one can buy a Arapahoe Basin season pass for $269.  Prices promptly increase starting at midnight.  It includes two days at Taos and other mountain discounts.

Other discounted passes will soon end their sales periods.    Think Telluride, Crested Butte, and Aspen.  Once they are gone - you're a loser.  No purchases available till next fall.

Expect Vail Resorts pass prices to start increasing soon too.  November is almost here.  Sales will stop before Thanksgiving.   And yeah, Vail Resorts does not offer coupons in discount books.  That includes Breckenridge, Keystone, Vail, and Beaver Creek.

Buy your Arapahoe Basin discount pass at http://www.arapahoebasin.com/ABasin/tickets/season-passes/default.aspx
