Season Pass Season has started...
...And the Front Range of Colorado is still the cheapest place to ski in the country.
Even though my lovely bride and I were griping about the $50 increase in the Vail Resorts Buddy Pass this year, the Front Range remains the best workingman's place to ski.
Just look at the deals we get for season passes.
Here are the Front Range prices
Copper and Winter Park: $369
Keystone, A Basin, and Breckenridge: $349
All five Vail resorts: $379
Here the prices for the rest of the West... and these are early prices!
Aspen : $1,649
Deer Valley, Utah: $1,345
The Canyons, Utah $849
Mammoth, California: $1,500
Squaw Valley, California: $1,339
And here are prices for the East and Midwest!
Stowe, Vermont: $1,255
Sugarbush, Vermont: $1,029
Sugarloaf, Maine: $899
Boyne Mountain, Michigan: $860
Yes, that's right, one crappy, flat, cold hill in Michigan costs twice as much as skiing three Vail Resorts mountains in Colorado. Now stop complaining and start skiing.
If you don't think you'll ski enough to pay for a season pass, try a four-pack.
You can get them early season from Winter Park/ Copper Mountain
Vail Resorts should have theirs coming out in the next few days!
