Many college kids come to Colorado to ski. It’s the thing to do.

Then every January, kids from colleges across Colorado make their way to Aspen to join in the X Games fun and excitement. Some may just watch, some may ski, some may be there for the concert lineup and some may be visiting Aspen for the first time. For those who want to spend time on the snow, they’re in luck. College kids are eligible to purchase the College X Pass to be used only during the X Games.

For those college kids who came to Colorado and don’t know how to ski or snowboard, they can head to Copper Mountain for a special deal being offered. It’s actually for anyone over 16 years old who has never skied or snowboarded before. When you make it through Ski & Ride University, you get a season pass for the rest of the season at Copper Mountain.
