I braved spring break at Winter Park earlier in the week and had one of my best days ever skiing Mary Jane Tuesday. At the bar at the Club Car, I talked to a pass-holder and the bartender about the price tag on next season's Rocky Mountain Super Pass, and whether Copper was getting axed from the deal due to its sale from Intrawest to Powdr Corp earlier in the season.
Lo and behold, a press release showed up in my inbox that very morning that answered my questions: unlimited skiing and riding at Winter Park and Copper Mountain remains the heart of the deal, along with six unrestricted days at Steamboat if you buy before April 5. The price: $409.
Plus, pass-holders get 20 discounted "Friends & Family" tickets for 2010-11 -- 10 each for Winter Park and Copper -- twice this season's allotment, as well as assorted discounts and perks at the resorts' restaurants and shops and whatnot. Head to www.skicolorado.com to lock in the $409 price before April 5, or you'll have to spend more and you might not get those freebies at Steamboat.
