With a dusting of snow already reported across the northern Rockies, some Colorado skiers and snowboarders are already starting to think about the upcoming season.
First things first: It's definitely time to start thinking about a season pass, and Copper Mountain says pass prices will jump after Labor Day. This year's version of the Copper Pass will provide access to seven different mountains, along with discounts and other perks at Copper.
The basic adult Copper season pass is $389, a price that's only guaranteed through Sept. 1, although most resorts play fast and loose with their pass pricing, depending on how early season sales go. Teens through the age of 17 pay $299, while youth passes (ages 6-12) are $209. The senior pass (65-plus) is $279. Details and sales at this Copper Mountain web page.
For just a bit more money, you can play all season long on two mountains — Copper and Winter Park, with the Rocky Mountain Super Pass on sale now at $439 for adults. Pass benefits include:
- Unlimited skiind and riding at Copper Mountain and Winter Park Resort
- Free summer scenic chairlift rides at Copper Mtn.
- Discounts on retail, rental, food and beverage and Ski & Ride Schools
- 20% off Woodward at Copper Freestyle Lessons, Intro Sessions, Drop In Sessions and Skate/Bike Sessions
