Wells Fargo does BOGO but you need to be a current student or university staff employee to qualify for the coupon-plus you have to open an account with them. I think that offer ends very soon. Look on the Boulder or Denver craigslist.
Most employers offer free employee passes in a resort area. Bring lots of money for housing if you want to be close to a ski area and near civilization. check the resorts websites for pass options. Most pre-season pricing ends around mid-Nov.
