Lift ticket discount Aspen Gathering 2016

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 

I contacted group sales at Aspen/Snowmass.  Good news - the gathering meets the definition of a group. The prices are below. 

 

In summary:

 

1. One person must purchase the group tickets.

2. Fully unused tickets will be refunded but must go through the person who purchased the tickets.

3. Partially unused tickets (you buy 3 days but use 2) can be returned by the individual for resort credit and it is transferable.

4. Tickets must be used during the days the group is in-resort.

 

I know that many people are purchasing the MCP.   If you are not purchasing the MCP pass and are interested in the group pricing below, please reply to this thread.   We need to buy a minimum of 20 tickets which should not be difficult to do.  I am willing to coordinate the purchase of the group tickets if there is enough interest.  As it gets closer to the trip, I will post ordering details. If you are going to buy these group tickets, you must be willing to send money to me prior to me purchasing the group tickets and you must be willing to meet me at a designated place at the gathering to pick up your tickets.

 

Let me know if you have any questions. 

 

 

DETAILS:

 

 

1 day $105

2 day $178

3 day $267

4 day $284

5 day $355

6 day $426

7 day $ 497

Extension day $95

 

Definition of a group: 

A group consists of 20 or more lift tickets with the same start date (tickets will not work prior to the date you have given us). Ticket orders and single check or credit card payment MUST be received 14 days prior to arrival. An expediting fee will be applied to any order received inside 14 days of arrival as well as any additions to original order.  Group lift tickets will not be issued to individuals.

 

Children (ages 7-12), Youth (ages 13-17) and Senior (65+) will receive tour pricing.  Please enquire with your sales manager for rates.  Children 6 and under ski free but still require an RF Card  pass to load lifts, so please include in your order.

 

Mountain Advantage Savings –provides savings at NASTAR, Four-Mountain Sports, D&E Ski and Snowboard Shop, and participating on-mountain restaurants as well as select programs with Ski & Snowboard Schools of Aspen/Snowmass.  A valid group lift ticket must be presented at time of purchase to receive the discount.  No MAC’s will be issued for child lift tickets.

                            

 

Ticket Extensions – Individual guests with a multi-day lift ticket may purchase one additional day of skiing at a discounted rate ($95) by bringing their fully-used group ticket to any Aspen Skiing Company ticket window. Guests may purchase extension days within the expiration period of the initial ticket only.  No commission is given on ticket extensions.  Extensions may be purchased by individual group members only.

 

Ticket Validity – Paid tickets are valid only for the dates the group is in resort. Please specify arrival and departure dates for the group. Tickets will not work prior to the arrival date you have given us and will expire on departure of group.

 

Refunds - Totally unused tickets will be refunded at the net price paid, after the group has departed. Unused tickets must be received within two weeks after the group’s departure.  All refunds must be directed through the group leader or travel agent who purchased the tickets.  No refunds will be made to individuals, with the exception of in-resort credit (Aspen Snowmass Guarantee).  If a group lift-ticket order drops below 20 tickets due to refunds, Aspen Skiing Company may adjust the lift ticket rates and the number of complimentary tickets issued. Refunds will be processed as time allows, but no later than May 1, 2016.  Aspen Skiing Company lift tickets are non-transferable and cannot be resold.

 

Aspen Snowmass Guarantee – Our guarantee allows guests to take advantage of our great savings without risk.  We guarantee guests have nothing to lose, even if they do not use all their days by providing the opportunity to return partially-used lift tickets, within 14 days of expiration, and receive an in-resort credit toward future Aspen Skiing Company purchases.  When unused days on lift tickets are put into an in-resort account, guests receive monetary credit of the per day price of the unused days.  Guests have the current season plus the season immediately following to use their in-resort credit.  This credit may be used toward purchases of lift tickets, season passes, ski and snowboard school tickets, and toward rentals at Four Mountain Sports.  Credit is not valid on merchandise purchases or at restaurants.  In-resort credit is transferable; guests simply need to inform Aspen Skiing Company who will use the credit and we will put it in their name.

If we could make this happen that would be a great savings for many of us.  I would be in as would the 3 skiers coming with me.

post #3 of 26

That rate is far better than the over 65 senior rate of about $90/day. My airline ticket is booked, so count me in for group purchase. 

post #4 of 26

I would also be interested in this as well.  

post #5 of 26

If you have a military ID, you can get a discounted ticket for $98. At least that was the rate last season. This includes the old school inactive reserve green ID. Not sure if that's their actual policy, but they've honored it every time.

 

May be worth asking if there's a multi-day discount for this as well.

 I have spoken to the Aspen/Snowmass sales office.

 

Gathering attendees will be able to purchase tickets for use from January 30 through and including February 8. 

 

As we get closer to ski season, I will post details on ordering and payment.   I don't think it be difficult reaching 20 tickets.

Just bumping this thread as the list of people attending the Gathering continues to grow. It is my intent to get in on the group purchase. A suggestion for @skier31 is to start a sign-up post, similar to the Gathering sign-up page, so the numbers can be counted to make sure we get to a 20 ticket purchase. Also, do you know if the Group Rate has a senior rate available?

Thx for doing this

There is no additional senior discount.

I would prefer people private message me with your name, email and number of tickets.
I will announce when I have 20. I already have a request for 5 so we are on the way to 20.

Bump.

 

Any new info on group tickets?  My friend has until December 15th to decide whether to buy her tickets through her hotel or not.  Her hotel offers a discounted rate, but the group pricing is a lot better.

 

The rest of my gang and I all bought the MCP passes as we will ski Stowe and are going to Jackson Hole as well this season.  I am wondering if there will be enough participants to get the group rates as so many of the attendees did buy the MCP pass.

Hi everyone, orders are starting to roll in.  I will provide weekly updates as to where we are with the number of tickets.   Thanks!

Nice I have a reminder in my calendar to place an order in Jan. Let me know if the due dates have changed. Can you also please send me form of payment info? Thanks Nancy.

PS I had run a scenario analysis/model in Excel and proved that this EPIC pricing deal can't be beat. Thanks Nancy.

FYI - a huge thanks to Aspen/Snowmass group ticket program.  The total discount was about $3000.00 from walk up lift tickets.  The group ticket department made it very easy to do this and we were able to save people quite a bit of money.

Thank you for doing this.  This discount is a huge reason I'm able to attend.  I can't say how thankful and excited I am to be able to ski in Aspen
