Ski Corp. unveils prices for 2015-16
Season pass price increases to $1,049
Steamboat Springs — Steamboat Ski and Resort Corp. announced its 2015-16 season pass prices Monday with passes going on sale at 7 a.m. Tuesday.
Unrestricted adult season passes will cost $1,049 next winter, which represents a $50 increase over this season. Last year, season pass holders saw a $20-a-year bump in price.
To take advantage of early-bird pricing, passes must be purchased by June 1.
Steamboat is continuing its 30-year tradition of offering a free children’s season pass with the purchase of an unrestricted adult season pass by a parent, grandparent or guardian.
“Right now we’re offering Steamboat’s lowest pricing on season passes for a winter full of fun,” Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing Rob Perlman said in the news release.
In addition to an unrestricted season pass, skiers and boarders can purchase the Steamboat-6 and Steamboat-15 passes that provide six or 15 unrestricted days of skiing and riding for $509 and $819, respectively, when purchased by June 1. These prices represent respective increases of $30 and $40 from this season’s prices.
Through April 15, the Steamboat-6 pass is being offered at a special rate of $469. Pass holders also have the option of reloading their individual pass with special $49 tickets for Steamboat-15 and $59 tickets for Steamboat-6 with no restrictions. Any unused days on Steamboat-6 and -15 passes may be redeemed for summer gondola access.
And for those who enjoy skiing at night, unlimited night access to the slopes can be added to Steamboat-15 and season passes for only $59 if purchased by June 1. A night-only season pass is also available for $199. These prices are unchanged from current season prices.
The night skiing schedule for the 2015-16 season also will remain the same next season, with night operations running Thursday through Monday from mid-December to late March.
And new next season, Ski Corps. is offering a smart season pass program, which allows pass holders to attach a credit card to their pass, which means skiers and boarders don’t have to carry a credit card or cash and can use their pass to make purchases at any Ski Corp. restaurant, retail store or ski school.
The popular First Tracks season pass, which offers early access to Sunshine and Priest Creek areas, will be offered again in 2015-16 for $359, which is an increase of $40 over this season. These passes are offered in limited quantities and can only be purchased by season pass holders.
Steamboat season passes can be upgraded to include unrestricted access to Winter Park Resort for $99, and adult pass holders can purchase eight specially-priced lift tickets for friends and family. In addition, season pass holders enjoy additional savings on dining, rentals and SnowSports School.
Pass prices can be guaranteed with a $99 deposit by June 1 and final payment due Sept. 14. The special pricing on Steamboat-6 passes is only available through April 15.
The 2015-16 ski season at Steamboat Ski Area is expected to open Nov. 25 for Scholarship Day and run through April 10, 2016.
