Durango, Colo. --  Resort officials with the largest ski area collective in the Southwest announced details of the 2018/2019 Power Pass, which includes unlimited access to five ski resorts in Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona.


The Power Pass is being offered at new lower prices, offering savings of up to $199 over last year.  All kids who are in fourth grade (for the 2018/2019 school year) and those who are younger receive a free Power Pass – a savings of $199.  Adult Power Passes are $599, a savings of $50 over last year.  The Power Pass sale ends April 20, 2018.

The Power Pass pays for itself in less than 7 days. Skiers have two convenient payment options.   Pay in full, or utilize the no-interest payment plan with equal monthly installments.  Window lift ticket prices will remain the same as this season.


With the Power Pass, guests can enjoy endless mountain experiences throughout the season at a variety of resorts.  The Power Pass offers three free days at partner ski resorts includingCopper Mountain (CO),Loveland Ski Area (CO),Monarch Mountain (CO), Powder Mountain Resort (UT), Eldora Mountain (CO), Sunlight Mountain (CO),Snowy Range Ski Area (WY), and more. 


“We’re excited to offer the lowest price ever on the Power Pass,” stated James Coleman, managing partner of all five resorts.  “By lowering our pass prices, we’re continuing our goal of making skiing more affordable while offering an excellent value.”


New this Year – Summer Options! 
A new summer upgrade option provides savings across the board!  Add summer activities as a pass benefit by upgrading the Power Pass with the new Summer Adventure Pass.  The Summer Adventure Pass provides daily access to five activities at Purgatory Resort, including the new Inferno Mountain Coaster (opening this summer), alpine slide, scenic chairlift, bungee trampoline, family ropes course, stand up paddle boarding and other water sports, big air bag jump, summer tubing, and more.  Individually priced at $199, the Summer Adventure Pass may be added to any Power Pass for only $100 - a savings of $99.  Window rates for five summer activities are $59.


The Mountain Bike Power Pass is available for an extra $100 with the purchase of a Power Pass, or can be purchased on its own for $199.  The bike pass provides unlimited uplift access at Pajarito Mountain and Purgatory Resort, plus three free days at Powderhorn bike park.  Pajarito Mountain and Purgatory are enhancing their bike park offerings this season. Purgatory’s crews will add new bike trails, new events and festivals, high-level racing, as well as new clinics and camps.  This summer, Pajarito is hosting new bike events, including cross country, enduro races, and downhill racing.


“Our new pass structure provides a lot of great opportunities for our guests,” stated Coleman.  “For those who are primarily interested in winter, they save with the new lower priced Power Pass.  Our summer-only guests visiting Purgatory or Pajarito now have a new option that saves them money at the ticket window with the new summer passes.  And for those who enjoy both seasons, they can easily add the summer option to their pass.”


The Power Pass also offers savings on scenic chairlift rides at Arizona Snowbowl, and discounts on bike and hike chairlift rides at Pajarito Mountain.
