Ski four pass

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Starting 8/30/03 Ski four pass on sale at the King Soppers (Grocery Store). While supplies last. $99 for 4 days at Winter Park & $89 for Copper. Holiday black-out dates but still a good deal if one does not want to buy the season pass. Any other Deals out there yet?

I have a few questions on the 4-Packs for Keystone, A-Basin, and Breck that I hope someone can answer for me.

My daughter and I will be skiing/boarding there in mid December from a Saturday thru Tues. or Weds. We would like to spend one day at each.

Can the 4-Packs be split between two people? Since the $99 4-Packs can only be used Mon-Fri it wouldn't work for us to each buy one of those. I thought that if the packs could be split, we could buy the $89 Keystone, A-Basin pack to use for both of us on Sat. and Sun. Then we could buy the $99 4-Pack to use between the two of us on Mon. and Tues. at Breckenridge and Vail or Beaver Creek. Can it be done this way?

Also, can they be purchased in advance by someone other than the user? (I have a nephew, who lives outside of Denver, who could pick them up for us ahead of time)

SJCzar, last year the Keystone packs could not be split, one person per day per ticket. Not sure of that is the policy this year, you might contact the resort. Yes your nephew could pick them up for you. I would do it as soon as possible as they typically sell out before the offer ends.

I do not know how the other resorts work, though I thought Loveland allowed you to use the 4-packs whatever way you wanted. Maybe someone here could confirm that and if they are still for sale.

I am a bit confused by this
Since the $99 4-Packs can only be used Mon-Fri it wouldn't work for us

I think that only applies to using the tickets at Vail/Beaver Creek, you can use them at Keystone, A-basin on the weekends

I wasn't quite sure from your original post whether you meant the whole 4-Pack was good Mon-Fri or just the Vail-Beaver Creek part of it. It seemed like too good of a deal if the others could be used on weekends, but if they can then that would work out perfect for us.

Thanks for all the info. I better not wait too much longer before they're not available any longer.

I am pretty sure that is the deal. You can use the Keystone/A-Basin tickets anytime except the black out dates. You might double check with the resort but that was how it was last year.

I'm pretty sure the Loveland 4 pk pass can be used:
1. by one person of 4 different days
2. by four people on one day

Does anyone know if the copper or winter park 4 packs can by used as in line 2 above?

Thanks

I think they can be used that way. The problem I discovered was they required you to use one ticket between Nov 12th and Dec 25th to "activate" the card. This doesn't do much good for those of us not planning on coming out until January or later.

Loveland gives you actual lift tickets. Just go straight to the liftline. http://www.skiloveland.com/order/4pack.htm

Line 2 does not apply. Only one card use per day at Winter Park and Copper. Neither card is available online or by phone. They must be picked up at Select Front Range locations now.

This weekends Ski Expo in Denver is a great place to get them all. Don't forget the 3Pass that Vail offers (online too) or the Aspen/Snowmass Classic Pass. You get 6 days of skiing at all four Aspen mountains for $ 119.00. Two days however are only good during Thanksgiving. http://www.aspensnowmass.com/classicpass/

I just talked to my source in Aspen and it looks like they already have 2 feet at the top at Snowmass before it snowed last night. It was some darn good riding there last Thanksgiving. Uncrowded too.

So basically all these 4 packs and specialty passes are of no use to the traveler. You must buy them now and do it in person. Who's going to fly to CO to buy tickets now to save a few bucks?

I was stoked, now I'm just bummed.

Loveland 4-packs can be bought online until 11/11/03 so you better hurry! www.skiloveland.com

True, as much as I like Loveland, it's basically my last choice of terrain to travel 1500 miles for. I'll ski it once during my week, but I'm not interested in spending 4 days there. It used to be my home mountain because it was close to Denver when I lived there.

We purchased the 4-Packs for A-Basin, Breck, Keystone, Vail, Beaver Creek (fortunately I have someone in the area to buy ours in person).

But we also bought the Denver edition of the "Gold C Entertainment Book", that I had mailed directly to my house. It has good deals on lift tickets at every resort in Colorado. The savings amount depended on when in the season you were going out there but all were a much better deal then paying regular ticket-window price.

Currently it looks like my best deal will be online advanced purchase through the PEAKS card. Unless the Gold C book has better deals for multi-day lifts? I'm looking at 1 day Keystone (that's highly negotioable though), 2 days Breck and one day Vail (possibly two days Vail).
post #16 of 26
I'm at work right now....working hard as you can tell, and my book is at home, so I'll post you the rates later.

Cool, thanks.

If you go to the copper & vail websites you will find fourpacks & other lift tickets that can be bought online until nov 9th or 10th, they have certain blackout dates but might be what you want, copper has a strange blackout week late in jan due to some function or large ski group that is coming, the keystone abasin tickets cannot be used at vail you need the keystone abasin breckenridge ticket to get 1 day at vail per fourpack, makes sense if you can't ski breck on it they sure wouldn't take it at vail. good luck

post #20 of 26
I forgot to mention that there are at least four coupons for each time frame at each resort in the book.
post #21 of 26
Bteddy, Copper's website says that you can't purchase the four pack online. It does give you various places and times that you can buy them though. I have a Copper Card that allows me to purchase tickets for a big discount any day, and lets me buy up to four a day. You have to get it in person at Copper or there are some places in Boulder where you can get one. The most I spent for a lift ticket there with it last year was $39, a big savings.
post #22 of 26
sounds like the entertainment book coupons have a blackout during xmas time frame with no discount at all then. can anyone tell me if the copper/winter park card (locally purchased for $10) has a total blackout during xmas holiday time frame too? if it has a discount then, do you know approx how much? thanks

bteddy, That is a great deal for an awesome place like Copper. I think it's one of the top 3 ski skiing areas in the USA. I love that place. By the way, my Son D.J. is skiing there for the first time since he broke his leg there last Feb. His ski team from C.M.C. is there today cause Steamboat isn't open yet.

Thanks for the info. I'll stick with the Copper Card as i've spent enough on passes out there this year. I have the four mountain pass as well as a Steamboat card. That should keep me busy for the Winter.

Hey Lars those prices are great & to not block out christmas should help a bunch of people but the time period I could get lodging thru our timeshare fell right in the jan - feb blackout dates, I called to see what the deal was & they told me they had a large group of skiers coming for that week so they would not honor any discounted tickets on those dates so its off to vail for us, last year they had a trade show on about those dates so I wonder if thats the deal, I did find another outlet for discounted tickets that sounds pretty good, they are a seller on ebay called powder bay.
