Make everyone around you drool when you flash them your Ski Utah Silver or Gold Pass. These passes are good at all 13 Utah Ski and Snowboard Resorts including Alta, Beaver Mountain, Brian Head, Brighton, The Canyons, Deer Valley, Park City Mountain Resort, Powder Mountain, Snowbasin, Snowbird, Solitude, Sundance, and Wolf Creek Utah, and cross country/nordic ski areas.

One pass. That's all you'll need to ride every chairlift in the state. These bad boys go fast so if you've got a spare $3,400, plunk it down now for a 2009-10 Ski Utah Gold Pass. The pass offers 40 days of skiing at each of these resorts:  Powder Mountain, Alta, Park City, Solitude, Deer Valley, Brighton, Snowbird, The Canyons, Beaver Mountain, Brian Head, Snowbasin, Sundance, and Wolf Creek. It's also fully transferable, so your friends and family can use it if you have to work.

The cheaper Silver Pass ($2,300) is valid for 30 days of skiing at the same areas in Utah but is non- transferable. Sure, it's actually cheaper to buy 30 or 40 single lift tickets or an individual season pass at most resorts but nothing else would offer you and your friends such flexibility and, when you consider it, you're actually buying 520 ski days.

One of the best deals for passes, however, comes in the form of the Deep Powder Pass. You can have a fully transferable pass to Alta, Brighton, Snowbird, and Solitude with a $1,750 donation to the Cottonwood Canyons Foundation. Yep, write off your skiing. The pass allows for 30 days at each resort (120 total) and 100 percent of the proceeds goes to support a local nonprofit organization with a mission to continuously improve the environment of Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons through stewardship and education programs.

 Both passes are on sale while supplies last.
