~~True but the terrain at Aspen is much better than almost all of these resorts without the crowds for a still reasonable drive albeit not for a day skiing trip
The Classic 4 pack is pretty good deal but I waited to late to buy one the year and am kicking myself...I should be able to get some sort of discounted race ticket since I'm headed there for my kids races
Agree.... but flying into Eagle and catching a shuttle is not much different than flying into DIA and shuttling to Summit......
For somebody that doesn't own a season pass, the cost of skiing Aspen is basically a wash compared to skiing Breck/Vail.
However, the skiing experience is just superior in every way. No crowds, far superior terrain in every category except perhaps skied out intermediate bowls. The Aspen areas have a lot more 3000+ vert continuous fall line groomer blues for those that seek it. They have way superior expert terrain, whether its tight steep trees, wide open bowls, or cliffs and billy goating stuff.
The drive is so totally worth it.
