Epic Savings at Resorts Nationwide

Epic Savings at Resorts Nationwide

Family Skiing at Vail
To lock in the best deals on next season, buy now.

Even the recession has a silver lining: cheap skiing. Many—perhaps most—resorts nationwide are offering rock-bottom deals on next season’s ski passes. From Vail, Colo., to Waterville Valley, N.H., pass prices for the 2010/11 season are often at an all-time low if purchased before the lfits close. Here are a few examples, but contact your own favorite resorts for the latest deals as ski areas offer incentives and perks to motivate you to purchase next season's passes this season. 

Vail Resorts

It’s back for the third straight season; the pass to end all passes: The Epic Pass, which provides unlimited access to Vail, Beaver Creak, Keystone, Breckenridge, Heavenly, and Arapahoe Basin resorts all winter long. For $599, you’re set for the 2010-2011 ski season.

For $449, Vail Resorts is offering two ski passes. The Colorado Pass provides unlimited access to Keystone, Breckenridge, and A-Basin, and ten days at Vail and Beaver Creek (with restrictions during Thanksgiving, Christmas, and President’s Day holidays). If you don’t plan on hitting the slopes that hard, pick up the Epic 7-Pack which gives you seven unrestricted days at Vail’s five resorts plus Arapahoe Basin also for $449.

For a cheaper price of $409, you can purchase the Summit County Pass, allowing unrestricted access to Breckenridge, Keystone, and A-Basin. And cheaper still is the Keystone/A-Basin pass for $359, providing unlimited lift access to both resorts.

All passes include six ski-with-a-friend discount tickets to use at your discretion and summer lift access.

These great deals are only available on through May 31, 2010. Skiers also have the option of paying down $49 now to lock in these prices; the balance is due in September 2010.

Copper Mountain, Winter Park/Mary Jane, Steamboat

For $409, The Rocky Mountain Super Pass Plus provides unlimited skiing at Copper Mountain and Winter Park/Mary Jane and six unrestricted days at Steamboat.  Rocky Mountain Super Pass Holders also receive 20 ski-with-a-friend discount tickets available for use at Copper and Winter Park/Mary Jane only. This price is available through April 5, 2010. Unlike the Epic Pass, a special discount price of $319 is available to college students if they purchase their pass at the Winter Park ticket office. Senior (70+) and Child (6-12) passes are also available at $219.

Season passes for Winter Park/Mary Jane and Copper Mountain can also be purchased now for $369 and $359 respectively. Season pass holders at each resort receive 10 ski-with-a-friend discount passes.
