Aspen Skiing Company: Premier, Flex prices flat for 2011
ASPEN – The Aspen Skiing Co. is holding the line on the prices of its two most popular ski passes and it is resurrecting the two-day-per-week pass, which had been eliminated prior to last season, the company announced Monday.
The Premier Pass – which offers unrestricted access to all four Skico ski areas with no blackout dates – will cost $1,099 for members of local chambers of commerce in 2010-11. The price is $1,499 for individuals that don’t belong to the chambers. Both prices are the same as last season.
The best prices, in all cases, are available before the super early deadline on Sept. 24.
The Flex Pass prices, good for one day of skiing or riding per week, will be sold for $699 for chamber members and $819 for non-members, if purchased by Sept. 24. Those prices are also the same as the prior season.
New on the menu is a Double Flex Pass, which offers access to the slopes two days per week. The cost will be $949 for chamber members and $1,199 for non-members if purchased by Sept. 24.
Skico spokesman Jeff Hanle said the Double Flex Pass was created in response to people who said they could only hit the slopes twice per week, so they didn’t want to spend the money on the Premier Pass and the Flex Pass didn’t meet their needs.
Two other passes that were eliminated last season remain a memory. No pass good only at Aspen Highlands will be offered. In addition, no seven-day Classic Pass will be offered.
The Skico is offering a five-day Classic Pass for $259, an increase of $10 from last season.
Passes will go on sale Monday, Aug. 23. The super early deadline expires Sept. 24; the early deadline goes through Nov. 12; the regular season prices are in effect after Nov. 12. Prices rise for both later deadlines.
