Deadline looms for ski passes

Aspen Times Staff Report
Aspen, CO Colorado

ASPEN ” Season ski passes from the Aspen Skiing Co. must be purchased by the end of Friday, Sept. 12 to get the best deals.

The Skico’s prices go up at certain intervals. Friday is the “super early” deadline. A premier pass, also known as a full season pass, goes up by $300 after Friday for members of a chamber of commerce business, for example. The full pass goes up $190 for non-chamber buyers after Friday.

Friday is also the deadline for the best price for people who upgrade a pass. For example, if a buyer made arrangements through their business to purchase a one-day-per-week pass but now wants to get a two-day-per-week pass, they must make the change in person at a ticket office by Friday to get the best deal.

The ticket offices at Aspen Mountain and Snowmass will be open this week from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Buttermilk will be open from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Thursday and Friday. Skico spokesman Jeff Hanle advised customers to purchase their passes at Buttermilk because it is well staffed, less crowded and has plenty of free parking.

The prices that go into effect Saturday will be in place through Nov. 14. Those are considered the “early” pass prices. Regular pricing will be in effect from Nov. 15 through the season.
