The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association, the national governing body for Olympic skiing and snowboarding, in partnership with the National Ski Areas Association, once again is offering the ultimate lift ticket - the "good-almost-anywhere Gold Pass."

You can obtain a Gold Pass medallion for a limited time, which is fully transferable to an unlimited number of people. You will have access to most of the ski and snowboard resorts in Colorado.

Plus, the $10,000 purchase price, which will go toward funding America's ski and snowboarding teams, is partially tax deductible. Call 800-974-2226 or log on to for further information.
