While season pass pricing has pushed up past rock bottom pricing, season passes are a deal no matter how you slice it. With Epic Pass pricing starting at $419 for a four-day’er up to $859 for an unrestricted, unlimited Epic Pass with access to 15 resorts, it’s tough to go wrong. While Vail Resorts advertises the Epic Pass as up to 45% off lift ticket pricing, try this math on for size. Buy the Epic Local Pass for $639, ski just 150 days, and you’ll amortize that pass at UNDER FIVE BUCKS A DAY. We make no promises about how this may impact the rest of your life, but your quads, your goggle tan and your smile should all be cranked up to eleven.
Is this the year you catapult your skiing to the next level? Then this is the month to commit to the gym. Get strong, stay strong, ski hard! And think about joining a clinic this season. Where a daily group lesson might not seem appealing, there are a number of ongoing groups around Summit County designed to boost your performance and help you discover new friends and new terrain. Don’t be too cool for clinics. Keystone has these clinics designed specifically for women.
Copper Mountain has a legacy of season long adult programs, including the Over the Hill Gang, a group of age 50+ vintage troublemakers masquerading as a mild mannered ski group. Join for the season, or try it for a day, and if you are 80 or older, you are eligible for a 50% discount.
What else does a successful ski season require? The short list is your gear, your layers, your fitness, your lift access, and your lodging. If you are renting seasonally, finding your spot is the highest priority. As seasonal workers move into town to make sure the lifts spin, the lessons are given and the chocolate is hot, pressure on the rental market escalates. It’s never too early to snap up your ski condo. And of course, if you are tired of the rental shuffle, we can help you and your family find your own mountain home. We are also good at skiing, so let us know if you’d like to plan a rip with any one of our Broker/Owners.
