Telluride Ski Resort's season pass sale runs through the end of the month, and it's the last chance for early bird pricing. An adult pass goes up by over $650 at the end of the month.

The best deal for an adult season pass is the 4Pass, which is four adults banding together to purchase season passes. You save $300 per pass, which drops the sale price from $1,298 for an individual pass to $998. That's a price drop-back to 2007 for an adult season pass, but you have to do it together at the same time.

A Junior Pass, ages 13-18, is currently on sale for $225 and will go up to $625 Oct. 30. A Child Pass, ages 6-12, is now $175 and goes up to $475. A College Pass, now $349, goes up over $400, and a Senior Pass (65+) goes from $599 to $925.

Frequency passes are currently on sale through the end of the month and will not be available after Oct. 29. A 6-Day Pass is $450 and a 10-Day Pass is $650, and the days do not have to be used consecutively. The Telluride Card is $80. It allows you to ski/ride free the first day and a 20-percent discount off the adult window rate for the rest of the season. The single-day adult window rate will be $98 this season.

Telluride's 14,000-foot peaks and box canyon adorned with frozen waterfalls compete easily with the Alps, and so does the skiing.

There's more than 2,000 skiable acres with 125 trails and some of the best hike-to-terrain in the Lower 48 with Bald Mountain, Black Iron Bowl, and the Gold Hill Chutes. With over half the terrain suited for intermediates and beginners Telluride offers difficulty levels suitable for everyone, and even a novice can ride lifts to the highest peaks and enjoy views typically reserved for the best skiers and riders.
