Vail lift ticket prices Sunday April 13, 2014

by G. Kunkel

 Here's another reason to buy a Epic Season Pass product in Colorado.   Prices really don't go down at Vail even at the end of the ski season.

I snapped this picture on Sunday while attending a Rocky Mountain-PSIA clinic.   I used my SIA Epic Pass to save PSIA some money.


While conditions weren't the best on Sunday.  Monday was a great powder day.   Too bad I was at home.

While prices have edged up recently for the 2014/15 passes, one can still buy them at a great price.   They can be purchased in the pass office at Lionshead (where this picture was taken), by phone, or online at snow.com.

Depending upon the pass one purchases, they are valid at various Vail Resorts locations:  Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone, Canyons, Heavenly, Northstar, Kirkwood, Afton Alps, and Mt Brighton.  It is also valid at Arapahoe Basin which has a marketing agreement with them.

Blackout days may apply depending upon the pass one buys.

Don't be a putz next season.   Buy your Colorado ski season pass now.

No add-on ski resorts to the Winter Park Season Pass for 2014/15

by G. Kunkel

There's a big change coming to the Winter Park Season Pass.  It could affect your pass purchase decision right now.

In the past, the resort has allowed people to add additional resorts to their WP season pass after its purchase for a few hundred dollars or so for each resort.   Not so next season.   You will not be able to add Steamboat or Copper Mountain to your pass.

The details haven't all been worked out but if you plan to ski or ride at Steamboat or Copper next season, one had best go ahead any buy a Rocky Mountain Super Plus Pass right now.

Resort staff are trying to let people be aware of this new policy right now.  They don't want a bunch of angry guests next season.

The price for the Rocky Mountain Super Pass Plus increases after tomorrow by $70.  It is the best price one will find for it all year.

The RM Super Pass Plus is valid for unlimited days at Winter Park and Copper Mountain.  It also has six unrestricted days at Steamboat and three days at Crested Butte.
