Season ski passes at Aspen Snowmass for the 2017-18 winter will cost between $20 and $50 more than last year, the Aspen Skiing Co. announced Thursday.
Passes go on sale Monday, with the best deals available until Sept. 15, according to the pricing structure released Thursday. The season will run from Nov. 23 to April 15 at Aspen Mountain and Snowmass, while Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk will be open Dec. 9 to April 8.
A Premier Pass, which offers unlimited skiing all season with no blackout days, will cost $1,849 compared with $1,799 last year if purchased by Sept. 15. With the chamber of commerce discount, the pass will run $1,349 until Sept. 15.
The Sept. 15 purchase date reflects Skico’s “super early” pricing structure, which increases $330 for the Premier Pass under the “early” pricing structure that lasts until Nov. 10. Prices rise another $40 if the pass is purchased after Nov. 10. With the discount, the price will increase $440 after Sept. 15 and another $170 after Nov. 10.
Prices for the Premier Pass also went up $50 last winter without the chamber discount and $40 with the discount.
The two-day-a-week pass — called the Double Flex — will increase by $45 this year from $1,449 to $1,494. Those eligible for the chamber discount will pay $1,199 this year, compared with $1,149 last year, a $50 increase.
