The snow is barely melting off the slopes before Durango Mountain Resort puts up a season pass deal for next winter.
Savings up to 35 percent over the regular season pass price – plus free skiing at seven partner resorts – can be found through April 30. The adult pass, with no blackout dates, is going for $599 (as opposed to $819 if bought before Sept. 15 and $919 after that). A fulltime college student or senior 65 and over get the unrestricted pass for $399, and a teen to 17 years old pays $329. Weekday passes go for $349, while kids 9-12 years old get on the slopes next season for $269.
Other benefits for all but the weekday passes include three free days at Brian Head, Powder Mountain and Sunlight Mountain – three new winter partners for Durango Mountain Resort – as well as returning partners Loveland, Powderhorn, Monarch and Taos Ski Valley. Three half-price days can be had at Crested Butte and Arizona Snowbowl. There are also discounts on food, beverages, retail and lessons, plus free access to some of the summer activities on the mountain.
