Fact: Though it's incredibly awesome, skiing is expensive. But some breaking news coming from two separate resorts has our wallets feeling a little fatter. This week, both Arapahoe Basin, Colorado, and Angel Fire, New Mexico, announced they will offer two-year passes at bargain rates.
A-Basin's Double Down pass (which can be purchased here) allows skiers to ski two seasons for $499, an especially good deal considering A-Basin has one of the longest ski seasons in America.
Angel Fire's $399 End of Days pass (a reference to the Mayan Calendar) will allow unlimited access to the mountain for this season, next season, and the summer between the two. The End of Days pass can be purchased here. The price goes up $100 after October 31.
We hope this trend spreads to other resorts.
