"Vail" and "discount" are mutually exclusive terms.

The general vibe from Aspen and Vail with regard to ski ticket pricing is, "If you have to ask, you probably don't belong here" which is why, as much as I enjoyed skiing Vail in the past, I have not skied there in over 20 years.

Check out a locals' resort, such as Loveland Basin.

Adult (15+) $65
Child (6-14) $28
Child (5 and Under) FREE
Senior (60-69) $50
Senior (70+) $89 Season Pass


I would suggest Ski Sunlight, too, but there are currently traffic delays in Glenwood canyon. Still, if your schedule accommodates a trip to Sunlight, it can be a unique experience when combined with some après-ski soaking in the Glenwood Hot Springs. 4 lift tickets plus 4 hot springs tickets for total of$199 using the online coupon.

vs. $165 for one adult ticket at Vail :hysterical:

Just checked the prices for next season--a whopping $175!
Got my season pass in hand and ready for next season already. Check your emails for an offer for discounted season passes. For the price of one day's ticket get a discount for next season's epic pass (various types available-we chose the local pass for limited restriction to Park City and ten days for Vail and Beaver Creek, with blackouts)

Just put down a $99 deposit on my unlimited Season Pass at Steamboat. Rest ($500) due in Sept. I usually get 30-40 days a season which works out to $15-$20 a day:D. Life is good:)

Cheers

Is the steamboat pass good anywhere else?

Nope but there are options to add on some days at Winter Park, Copper and maybe some others IIRC for a few more dollars. I'm happy at the 'boat having skied many other areas in the US and Europe in the past 50 years so I just buy the Steamboat only version.:D

Check steamboat.com

re: Vail -- they announced the season is being extended by a week. Closing date now April 17. Two feet of new snow this past week and more on the way. March is living up to its historical record of being the snow month.

Nice. You must live in the area. I can't imagine my husband taking that many days off to ski out west. We're from the Midwest. Takes some time to get there. We're lucky to get ten days in Vail or PC. That comes out okay for a $500 season pass. Plus we get our local Wilmot unlimited with no restrictions.:cheer:

I live in Steamboat Springs from Feb to the end of the season in Mid Apr. The $599 pass is for 70+ Geezers like me. I also volunteer for some mountain events to pick up free lift tickets for friends who visit. :D

Cheers
