COPPER MOUNTAIN, Colo. – Copper Mountain’s new ski pass is all about big snow.

Its $99 Snow Day Pass offers unrestricted lift access any day it snows at least 4 inches. Copper Mountain spokesman David Roth says the resort has had nine days so far this season with that much new snow. On Nov. 17, it reported 14 inches of fresh powder.

The pass also offers free skiing on Super Bowl Sunday and April 15, no matter what the weather is like.

Also Monday, Steamboat and Winter Park announced sale of a pass good for two visits during the season at each ski resort for $199. Single-day tickets for someone who walks up to a ticket window at Winter Park are $87. Single-day, walk-up tickets are $85 at Steamboat, but that rises to $97 on Saturday.
