Current Best Deals on Lift Tickets By Resort in Colorado...from Liftopia

There's plenty of snow up in the mountains, and looks like we might be in store for a fantastic year ahead!  We were just up at Copper Mountain, and although it was a bit too cold for our taste, the snow was great!  Anyway, so I've tried to compile a list of the Colorado resorts that are offering some specials/discounts through Liftopia.  Every now and then, they have some great deals.  If you don't see anything listed here, take a look around the rest of the site to find other ways of finding deals on lift tickets!

Not all resorts even offer a discount on ski lift tickets (shocker), but here's what we've found that's current:

Costco Crested Butte Ski Lift Deal - No Eldora or A-Basin yet...

I’m sure most of you are itching to get up to the snow-packed mountains!  If you’re like us, you’re still holding out for the best deal on lift tickets.  Usually a great place to buy your passes is at Costco.  I just got off the phone with two different Costco’s this morning. (Westminster, and the Costco at Lark Ridge in Thornton)  Unfortunately the only deal they have running currently is for Crested Butte. 

-         $97.99 for 2 of 3 days, Adult Ski Lift Tickets.

I asked the guy about Eldora, and he said that they normally have a deal with them, yet he doesn’t see anything in the system yet.  I was also hoping that A-Basin would have some type of deal, but nada.  I’ll check back with them in a couple weeks to see if there’s an update.  Anyway, might be worth a road trip to Crested Butte?  I think that rate is half off the regular price!

We'll keep you posted on any new deals in the pipeline!

King Sooper Ski Lift Ticket Deals / Purchases

So many of you have heard that there is some type of discount lift tickets sold through King Soopers stores.   Although I believe that used to be the case, I just called the King Soopers in Westminster off of 136th to get more info.

Unfortunately, the lady at the service desk stated that they don't offer any type of discount, but rather that they sell the lift tickets at the same going rate of each resort.  I guess if you're out buying groceries and you don't want to wait in the lift line at the resort it may be of a benefit to you?

Anway, thought I would pass it on.  Please let me know if you hear otherwise!
