Winter Park tickets during TG weekend?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I had to make a ski trip in Thanksgiving and my constraints were:

 

- Enough skiing for Inter-Adv.Inter

- Closer to Denver

- Cheap

- Some snow (fresh/man-made) during TG weekend.

 

I had shortlisted Loveland vs A-Basin on these terms. Even finalized Loveland until I failed to find a good  accommodation anywhere close to it in low budget.

 

But found a good place near Winter Park so switched to Winter Park. My trip total was coming out to be almost same so WP makes sense I think.

 

I will be skiing 4 days (out of 5, starting 27th Nov) and WP website is showing $242 for 4 pack. Is that the best price for tickets or can I find a deal somewhere or some buddy pass? No deals on Liftopia either. Any suggestions please?

 

(Being an Asian, I am naturally reluctant to pay the MRP :P )

For Loveland the closest lodging is in Georgetown -- a pretty short commute. Nothing to be found there? A 4 pack to Loveland is currently $129.

 

However if your interest is inter-adv inter cruising, as much as I'm a Loveland fanboy, I think WP may be a better bet by Thanksgiving. Highspeed lifts, bigger snowmaking capacity, etc etc etc. $242 is the price since it went up a few days ago. Even if you skied with a buddy pass everyday at WP it would be $59. So its a wash.

Yeah, thats what I thought about Loveland that its going to be cheaper driving from Georgetown. But found a good place to stay at WP at $50 and on the shuttle route. Which saves me from having to rent a car for Loveland.

 

But from your reply, seems like $60 is what I might end up paying for TG weekend.

Alright, I will wait a couple of days to see if Liftopia gets any deals or I will just buy 4 pack pass at $240. I was hoping early season, it should be cheaper :)
