Snow reportedly hit the high peaks in the Aspen area yesterday, and that means it’s not to early to start thinking about ski season. Aspen/Snowmass coincidentally announced its season pass pricing for the 2013-2014 season, with passes going on sale Monday.
“It’s hard to believe that another winter season is just around the corner, but the entire team at Aspen/Snowmass is already gearing up to welcome you back to the mountains,” says David Perry, senior vice president, mountain division, Aspen Skiing Company. “We are pleased to be able to offer more added value to the Premier Pass than ever before yet keep it priced lower that it was in 2007-08. We also hope you will be able to experience one or more of the Mountain Collective destinations at 50 percent off with your Premier Pass.”
The Premier Pass, providing unlimited skiing/riding on all four mountains with no blackout dates, is loaded with more than $1,000 in added benefits, and costs $1,649 in the Super Early Season (through Sept. 13). The Premier Chamber Pass for area businesses is just $1,199 in the Super Early Season. The Premier Pass is also available at senior (65-69), youth (13-17), child (7-12) and silver (70+) rates. As always, children six and under ski for free.
The Double Flex Pass and Flex Pass cost $1,329 and $899 respectively in the Super Early Season (or $1,049 for the Double Flex Chamber and $779 for the Flex Chamber). The Double Flex offers two days of skiing/riding each week of the winter season (21 weeks) and the Flex Pass offers one day each week on all four mountains plus the flexibility to add days any time for 50 percent off the 1-day, in-resort rate.
The Escape Silver Pass for seniors 70 and over will return and is just $229, offering pay-as-you-go access with direct-to-lift options to all four Aspen/Snowmass mountains for just $24 per day and discounts on summer lift access.
Benefits for premier pass-holders also include discounts for friends and family on tickets, lessons, rentals and restaurants.
