Hey college kids -- since we're relatively sure you were already considering skipping out on two days of class and heading to Aspen for the 14th installment of the Winter X Games, here's something to help make your decision a little easier. Aspen/Snowmass is offering two X Games-weekend lift tickets to college-enrolled shredders under the age of 25.
All you have to do is show up with a student ID and prove you're not older than 24 (being able to shred isn't actually required) to get two lift tickets for $87. You can also purchase what Aspen is calling the College X Pass online. The passes are valid January 28-31 and must be purchased by January 27.
