Season passes are available at Arapahoe Basin, which often has one of the longest running snow season in Colorado. A-Basin's slopes typically open in mid-October and sometimes close in June, depending on the snow season.

The Adult Bonus Pass costs $349 (Child Pass is $259), and it has a lot of bonuses. It includes unlimited, unrestricted access to A-Basin, along with five days at Breckenridge or Keystone, with one day at Vail or Beaver Creek (not over the holidays). The Bonus Pass includes a half-day lesson, 10 percent off food and beverage and the retail shops, five unrestricted days at Bear Valley in California, and one unguided day at Silverton. You can get discounted tickets for friends and family as well as $10 off a performance tune of your equipment.

An A-Basin Only Pass is available for $289, which is basically the same. It doesn't include the extra days at the other Summit County resorts.

Always remember that passes are non-transferable and for the pass holder only. Don't let your buddy use your pass or you can say "Bye Bye" to your pass and your buddy can say "Hello" to a Summit County police officer when he gets arrested. Season passes can be picked up at the A-Basin Season Pass office. Prices are subject to change.
