Spring skiing deals

Spring, schming, Colorado skiing is not over by a long shot. Yesterday I skied beautiful, deep powder at the top of Breckenridge (sure, it was mashed potatoes at the bottom, but whaddyagonna do?)
For Vail resorts, the best tip is to find a friend (or friendly-looking stranger) who has a pass. Vail Resorts season pass holders can get discount "friend" lift tickets for about $50 bucks, which is much better than the current "late season" rate on Breckenridge's Website ( $81).
Copper has a great discount. $48.95 for an adult pass late season. Unfortunately, late season doesn't start until Monday, April 9. For the same price, skiers can hit Winter Park this weekend.
Loveland's price has dropped to $40.
Monarch doesn't offer a discount, but with regular tickets only $49, it almost feels like they have.
Wolf Creek: College ski day April 7 -- tickets $25 with college I.D.
By the way, it's not too early to start thinking about next ski season. Details for Vail Resort season passes is here. Winter Park/Copper (and possibly Steamboat) here.
