KEYSTONE, Colo. — March 10, 2014—Colorado skiers and riders are notorious for searching out fresh powder stashes, and the best prices at which to enjoy them. Now, value-seeking snow lovers need look no further than the Keystone A-Basin Pass™, the newest addition to the Epic Pass family. For just $289 ($209 for children five to 12 years old) skiers and riders can enjoy more than 4,000 acres of skiable terrain at Keystone Resort and Arapahoe Basin, both located just minutes from I-70. And now is the time to buy and lock in the lowest rate of the season, with just $49 down when purchased before April 13, 2014. The best value for unlimited skiing or riding in Colorado, the Keystone A-Basin Pass pays for itself in fewer than three days on the mountain.
Keystone A-Basin Pass holders will enjoy a full season of unlimited skiing and riding at two world-class resorts, with some holiday restrictions, making it easy to accumulate those three days it takes to get the maximum value from the pass. Whether it’s cruising the long groomers, award-winning terrain parks and five bowlsthat Keystone is known for, or exploring the high alpine terrain, steeps and shootsthat have made Arapahoe Basin “The Legend,” skiers and riders will have a tough time finding a more diverse terrain offering on one pass for under $300.
“It’s clear that for under $300, there is no pass in Colorado that offers the value of the Keystone A-Basin Pass,” said John Buhler, Keystone’s vice president and chief operating officer.
Equipped with one of the most effective snowmaking systems in the industry, Keystone is annually one of the first resorts along the I-70 corridor to open. Coupled with Arapahoe Basin’s legendary commitment to one of the longest seasons in the country, pass holders will enjoy nearly half a year of skiing and riding on one pass. Plus, both resorts offer free parking with easy mountain access, adding to the convenience and value of being a Keystone A-Basin Pass holder.
The Keystone A-Basin Pass is also perfect for families. A family of four can ski all season for under $1,000. Some resorts call themselves family friendly, but Keystone Resort sets itself apart by being truly family focused. Beginning with its convenient location just an hour from downtown Denver and minutes from I-70, the experience at Keystone is highlighted by added value and little touches that make the family ski experience more enjoyable from start to finish. The resort offers free, front-row designated family parking, and red wagons are placed throughout the resort to aid in transporting gear, and tired little ones, around the two base areas. This season Keystone introduced a new Family Ski Trail, a first of its kind beginner run that includes snow features to aid in progression, designated slow zones and rest stops. Beyond the ski and ride experience, families will have to carefully schedule time to enjoy all of the on-and-off snow activities the resort offers, many of which can be enjoyed free of charge. Can’t-miss attractions include a mountaintop tubing hill and snowfort, daily cookie hour at one of the resort’s two ice skating rinks and the new Kidtopia Headquarters, which features an indoor play space and interactive exhibits.
By purchasing a pass before April 13, 2014, skiers and riders will not only take advantage of the lowest guaranteed rate and the best value in skiing, they’ll also receive six Ski With A Friend tickets. The proof is in the pass, and there’s no better way to enjoy two of Colorado’s legendary mountains.
