Ski pass deals end Sunday

Daily Staff Writer

SUMMIT COUNTY – Sunday is the final day for 2004-05 spring pass sales at Vail Resorts-owned ski areas – when skiers and riders can buy ski passes at the lowest price.

Pass sales are divided into spring and fall sales. Fall prices will not be announced until late August, a company spokesperson said.

The Colorado Pass is currently $329 and the Buddy Pass is $299 for adults for both renewals and new passes. The child’s price (ages 5-12) for the Colorado Pass is $129.

Current passholders can renew passes online through the summer and will receive spring prices until further notice.

Pass prices traditionally go up in the fall. Last year, the price went up $20 in October.

Sunday is also the last chance for new passholders to purchase Colorado and Buddy passes with only a small down payment.

Skiers and snowboarders who purchase a pass by Sunday have the option of paying in two payments. A $29 non-refundable down payment with a credit card can be made when signing up and the balance will be automatically charged to the card in September. The program guarantees that passholders get the lowest pass price for the next season.

Sales for those who do not currently have a Colorado or Buddy pass run through Sunday at several Front Range locations, including Colorado Ski and Golf locations in Arvada, Aurora and Littleton; REI locations in downtown Denver, Colorado Springs and Fort Collins; and Boulder Ski Deals. The passes will be sold at Colorado Front Range locations during normal business hours.

The Colorado Pass will offer unlimited skiing with no restrictions at Breckenridge, Keystone and Arapahoe Basin plus 10 days of skiing at Vail or Beaver Creek. The pass will be restricted at Vail and Beaver Creek on Nov. 26-27, Dec. 27-Jan. 1 and Feb. 19-20.

The Buddy Pass offers unlimited access to Breckenridge, Keystone and Arapahoe Basin with no restricted dates.
