Aspen sticks with $96 lift ticket

ASPEN – The Aspen Skiing Co. will charge the same amount for a single-day lift ticket this season as it did last winter, the company announced Saturday.

The Skico raised the walk-up window rate for a single-day ticket to $96 Saturday, up from from $89. That is the peak price for the season, said Skico spokesman Jeff Hanle. The Skico’s top price was also $96 last season.

Hanle said holding the line on the price was an acknowledgment of the tough economic times. The Skico has offered more discounts and special packages with lift tickets and lodging this season..

Vail Resorts hasn’t announced its peak price yet, but Aspen is already assured of not having the highest-priced single-day lift ticket. Steamboat will charge at least $97, according to a reservationist at the resort. Steamboat hasn’t announced its single-day ticket price for the holidays yet, but its three-day lift ticket will be $97 per day, according to its website. Steamboat charged a $91 peak price last season.

Telluride has announced it will hold its peak lift ticket price at $95, same as last season. Stowe is sticking to $89. Deer Valley will jump from $86 to $90.

Vail was still charging $89 as of Saturday. A company spokeswoman previously said a holiday price will likely be set early next week. Vail and Beaver Creek charged $97 at peak season last winter.
