Vail cuts Breckenridge from four pack deals

The ski pass season just started rolling. This week resorts announced their pass deals. Most passes go on sale Labor Day Weekend. But there's a major change in the sweet Vail Resorts fourpack. It is now only good for Keystone and A Basin. The $129 pass, which gives skiers four days (restricted during peak holidays, not that you'd want to ski then anyway) used to be good at Breckenridge as well. Not sure why they cut it, but I do know Breck always beats Keystone in terms of skier numbers, so maybe Vail is trying to funnel more weekend traffic to Keystone.
Even without Breck, it's still a screaming deal. You can pick them up at Colorado Ski & Golf or REI.

Copper/Winter Park also have four packs. They cost $119 for Copper or $129 for Winter Park. They're not good during Christmas week. New pass purchasers can visit Front Range Christy Sports stores beginning Sept 1
By the way, for most Front Range Skiers, the fourpack is really the way to go. I heard once that most Front Range season pass holders only use their pass an average of 5 times. If that's the case, it's much cheaper to get a fourpack or two.

Speaking of bargains: Dave, I know you're going to write about the huge gear sales that start this weekend.

Did you see the guy in Denver camped out to be first in line at SNIAGRAB?
