Plan your trip and buy your tickets at least seven days in advance and you can save when you ski the slopes of [R25R, Aspen]’s four mountains. The deal is good on more than just lift tickets as you can save on lessons and equipment rentals too. You won’t need to pay baggage fees and schlep along your skis and poles as you can get a nifty package at Four-Mountain Sports.

There are a few rules that go along with the pre-purchase offer including it must be a minimum of two days. Two days with tickets and either rentals or lessons gets you five percent off. Schedule all three and you get 10 percent off. There are a few more stipulations for the holiday period of Dec. 16-31. Call 877-282-7736 or 970-923-1227 for full details.

The Mini-Vacation Package, or MVP, is another option to consider for the early season in Aspen. Buy two days and get three days on lodging, lift tickets, rentals, and group lessons. Book it by Nov. 23. The deal is valid Nov. 24 through Dec. 15. Call 877-308-8703 for more information.

Remember that if you put off the fun until March and April, kids can stay free and get to experience Snowmass’ Treehouse Kids’ Adventure Center. It’s at the base area and makes everything easy. Book your package with lodging, lifts and lessons. Kids ages seven through 12 can ski and stay free if an adult purchases a comparable adult ticket for four or more days. It’s the same deal with rentals. Book by Feb. 17 if you’re staying March 1-31, or book by March 16 if you’re staying April 1-15. Call 877-308-8703 for more information.
