Fall is officially here: Labor Day is gone, it's snowing in Colorado's high country, and lift ticket deals are abundant. Here's a pair of Colorado deals you can't pass up.
Loveland offers an unrestricted 4-Pak for $129, which works out to $32.25 per day. It is an actual lift ticket that gets you straight to the slopes, with no restrictions or blackouts. The Loveland 4-Pak tickets are even transferable, which means you can let your buddy use one.
It's a smart deal at Loveland since it's the first mountain along I-70 out of the Front Range. Denver skiers can stop off there and take some turns if the weather is bad and Eisenhower Tunnel is closed.
Winter Park and Steamboat have teamed up to offer the 4x40 Pass, which gets you two days at Steamboat and two days at Winter Park/Mary Jane. The two resorts are connected by Highway 40, and about a 1.5 hour drive from each other, hence the name. The early season price is $229, but that price can go up, and a limited amount of passes are available. The pass includes a blackout period of Dec. 27-31.
The resorts will also offer a 4x40 Lodging Pass, which gets you a deal in Fraser, outside Winter Park, or the Steamboat Grand. Details for both are on the 4x40 website. The 4x40 is non-transferable.
Winter Park is scheduled to open Nov. 16 and Steamboat's opening day is Nov. 23.
