Crested Butte Mountain Resort (CBMR) holds pass prices, enhances family affordability and creates incentives to upgrade
Last year’s snowfall of 418 inches, a season surpassing the long-standing 1979-1980 record, has left Crested Butte Mountain Resort feeling optimistic about next winter. In celebration of last winter’s phenomenal season of snow, CBMR is holding last year’s early season prices for its Platinum, Gold and Bronze pass holders until August 1. It is reducing prices on child and young adult passes, and formulating better family purchase plans to increase family affordability.
“We are really listening to our pass holders,” says Ken Stone, CBMR Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, “and have revamped our program for our loyal skiers and newcomers to build greater value in the best mix of pass products ever.”
Lock in last year’s prices
Buy your Platinum, Gold or Bronze pass from June 18th to August 1st and profit from last year’s prices. All Platinum Pass holders enjoy no holds barred, unlimited skiing and riding with no blackout dates, plus a full summer of lift rides for mountain biking and hiking. Next up, all Gold Pass holders can fully exercise their inner powder hound by capitalizing on skiing and riding the full 2008-2009 winter season with no blackout dates. Both Platinum and Gold Pass holders can also take advantage of three free days at Durango Mountain Resort, Powderhorn, Taos Ski Valley, Okemo and Mt. Sunapee. Bronze Pass holders can choose a more affordable package in accepting blackout dates during busy seasons such as the winter holidays and spring break.
Greater family affordability
CBMR has lowered children’s pass prices and created a better Family Pass Program. The new Family Pass Program includes one free Young Adult or Child pass for every Adult Platinum or Gold Pass purchased in the same family. Additionally, Child and Young Adult Season Passes have been lowered from last year. A Child’s Gold Season Pass, valid for ages 7-12, is only $99 and Young Adult Gold Passes, valid for ages 13-17, are now only $150 during the early purchase dates. And, as always, children 6 and under ski free.
To truly capitalize on these special savings, you must purchase your pass option during the first discount price period from June 18th through August 1st. The second discount period will extend from August 2nd through September 26th, with regular pass prices concluding September 27th through April 5th.
