Arapahoe Basin continues to be a leading Colorado resort for season pass options at competitive prices. Selections vary from the A-Basin Only Season Pass, The Bonus Pass or the Ski Show 4-pack.

Arapahoe's Season Pass is valid throughout the 2010-11 ski season with no blackout dates. The Adult Pass (ages 20-69) is currently on sale at $299, the Youth Pass (ages 15-19) for $199, and the Child Pass (ages 6-14) for $119. A-Basin leads the annual charge to be one of the first ski areas to open in the state. Arapahoe extends the season as long as possible for enthusiasts still wanting their boards while others are thinking of bikes and boats.

The Bonus Pass is another option for 1-70 corridor skiers and riders. skiers and riders take advantage of unlimited usage at A-Basin plus five non-transferable ski days valid at Keystone or Breckenridge within the 2010-11 season for $359. One of the five days can also be used at Vail or Beaver Creek (blackout dates apply). A limited number of these passes are available. Prices valid through Nov. 14, 2010.

"I bought a Bonus Pass a few years back an used my other days at Keystone which worked great," says Steve Shenk of Boulder, Colo. "Lately I've been buying day tickets through the friends and family discounts on their Seasons Passes. Either way you slice it, A-Basin makes it convenient and affordable to ski."

New for this season is the availability for pass holders to attach a credit card. Charges can be made at on-mountain restaurants, retail, rental, snow sports, and ticket office locations. A pre-loaded cash option is another convenience new to the 2010-11 A-Basin passes.

Pass holders will also receive numerous discounts at the resort. Deals include; friends and family A-Basin lift-ticket discounts, one $25 half-day class lesson, 10 percent off food (excluding the 6th Alley Bar), 10 percent off purchases at Arapahoe Sports, five days of skiing or riding at Bear Valley, Calif., one unguided day at Silverton Mountain, and $10 off professional tunes at the Base ‘n Edge Tune Shop.

The 4-pack pass option from A-Basin is yet another reason to hit up one of Colorado's ski shows. Arapahoe will be on hand at a number of these shows selling the 4-pack only available on location with price to be determined. The 4-pack includes four, fully transferable lift tickets to use at A-Basin throughout the 2010-11 season. Bring your family or a group of friends for a great day of skiing and riding at North America's highest ski area. Visit the Web site's Events Calendar for a list of ski shows A-Basin will attend.
