New pricing unveiled for Classic Pass
Aspen Classic Pass holders will pay more for lift tickets at the beginning and end of the season this year but less during the heart of the winter.
The Aspen Classic Pass is purchased for $10 and entitles buyers to discounts off the lift-ticket window price throughout the ski season. The tickets are valid at all four Aspen Skiing Co. ski areas.
The Skico simplified the associated lift ticket pricing schedule this season. Adult Classic Pass holders will pay $29 for lift tickets from Nov. 20 to Dec. 24 and again from April 1 to April 23. The lift ticket price will be $49 from Dec. 25 through March 31.
Last season’s pricing was more complicated. Prices climbed from $19 early in the season to $32, then finally peaked at $59 before stepping down to $52 and finally $19 by the end of the season.
While tickets won’t be offered for as low as $19 this winter, they won’t go as high as the $59 and $52 charged during the busy times last season.
People who had a Classic Pass last season can renew it this year by mail. Renewals must be postmarked by Oct. 31.
In addition, the pass will be on sale in Denver for the first time this year on Oct. 16 and 17 at the Christy Sports, Denver West Store. Future sales are scheduled in Boulder, Grand Junction and Englewood as well as Denver.
In the Roaring Fork Valley, the Aspen Classic Pass will be offered at Gart Sports in Glenwood Springs on Saturday, Nov. 6, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 7, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Purchasers can call the Aspen Classic Pass Hotline at (970)-923-0475 for specific information on purchase dates and locations.
The pass will not be available after Nov. 14.
