BROOMFIELD, Colo.— Nov. 10, 2008 — With the start of the ski season at Breckenridge and Keystone this weekend, as well as snow in the forecast today, Vail Resorts is giving Colorado skiers and snowboarders an additional opportunity to purchase the state’s most popular season passes – The Colorado and Summit Passes. The Colorado and Summit Passes will stay on sale at fall prices through Sunday, Nov. 16 at select Front Range locations.*
“We’ve been getting phone calls and e-mails from panicked Colorado skiers and snowboarders who didn’t buy their Colorado or Summit Pass before our deadline,” said Heidi Kercher-Pratt, vice president of corporate marketing for Vail Resorts. “With the new snow and the kickoff of the ski season at Breckenridge and Keystone this weekend, Colorado skiers and snowboarders are excited and eager to take their first turns of the season. So we’re giving our loyal guests one more week to buy our state’s most popular season passes (The Colorado and Summit Passes).”

According to Kercher-Pratt, Coloradoans love to ski. “Now more than ever we need to feel that exhilaration of being back on skis … that sense of awe when we stand at the summit of a mountain … the rush of adrenaline when we make that first turn of the season. We don’t want anyone to miss out on these opportunities with their friends and family this winter. That’s why we’re giving Coloradoans another week to buy their Colorado or Summit Pass.”
