Ski for $25 at Loveland Ski Area on February 12, 2015

by G. Kunkel

Hooky Day returns to Loveland in February thanks to a local radio station.

Just print out the coupon (no mobile coupon or printer at the resort),  and take it to the lift ticket window.  Hand over $25 and they give you a ticket.

Just look for the coupon to appear on the 95.7 website the week of Feb. 12.  It is not available earlier than that.

The coupon is valid for a different special if you can't make Hooky Day.

The coupon has a BOGO (buy one get one free) lift ticket offer good for two weeks after the 12th.

Loveland is an affordable option to the big expensive destination resorts.  It's also the closest ski area to Denver excepting Eldora.

Hooky Day will return in March as well.   FYI, this offer only happens on weekdays never weekends.

Costco Crested Butte lift tickets

by G. Kunkel

As of 1/19/15, Costco has Crested Butte lift tickets at its Superior, Colorado location.  They probably had them earlier but I haven't been to the store in some time.

Costco is not yet carrying tickets for Durango or Eldora Mountain Resort for the 2014 2015 ski season.  One can always try King Soopers, REI, or the Eldora Store in Boulder for EMR lift tickets.

The deal offers two days at Crested Butte for $97.99 for one person.

Several blackout periods apply.  It is not valid March 9-11 and March 16-18, 2015.  The pass is valid till April 5, 2015.

 To redeem, just present the voucher and photo ID at the lift ticket window in Mountaineer Square.

Application deadline for Colorado 5th Grade Passport

by G. Kunkel

The deadline to apply for a free 5th Grade Passport in Colorado is fast approaching.  The $99 6th Grade Passport deadline is coming as well.

Applications for the 2014 - 2015 ski season must be submitted by January 31, 2015.  No application code is needed on the form.  That is just used to track applications submitted by schools.

Once obtained, the passport is only valid at participating CSCUSA ski resorts.  It is not valid at Vail-owned resorts (Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, or Keystone).  Vail has a separate program that is only valid for schoolchildren who reside in Colorado.

The application must be mailed in.  It cannot be dropped off.  The passport cannot be picked up either.

The passport is valid for three free days of skiing or snowboarding per resort.  The 6th Grade Passport is valid for four days.

Get more information at the CSCUSA website.

2014 - 2015 Monarch Mountain lift tickets available in Costco

by G. Kunkel

The Superior, Colorado Costco store is currently selling lift tickets to a few ski resorts.  I stopped by on MLK day and confirmed what ones are available.

As usual, Costco does not carry any deals for Steamboat, Aspen, Vail, or Telluride.  That just is not ever going to ever happen.  Costco carries tickets to less expensive ski areas for those on a budget.

Monarch Mountain does offer a discount package for the 2014-2015 season.  Get three adult lift tickets for just $114.99.

The lift tickets are non-refundable, non-transferable, and cannot be resold.
