Vail holds line on multiday lift ticket prices

BROOMFIELD, Colo. ” In a concession to the economy, Vail Resorts Inc. says it’s holding its prices steady for multiday lift tickets at its five ski resorts.

Beginning Saturday, guests who buy PEAKS advance tickets a week in advance for at least three days of skiing or snowboarding will pay the same prices as last season. So a three-day adult ticket for Vail would be $267, or $89 per day. A single day at Vail normally costs $97.

Vail Resorts operates Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge and Keystone in Colorado and Heavenly in the Lake Tahoe area.

Vail Resorts executives said last week that lodging reservations were down 23 percent from last year at the same time but that the number of season passes sold was up 18 percent.

Meanwhile, through Jan. 31 while supplies last, Intrawest is offering a pass good for one day of skiing each at Copper Mountain, Steamboat and Winter Park in Colorado for $99. Intrawest, like Vail Resorts, relies on skiers from out of state to boost business. Both companies are cutting jobs to deal with the slow economy.
