Save up to $199 over last year!  Kids 4th Grade & Younger Receive a free Power Pass

Resort officials with the largest ski area collective in the Southwest announced details of the 2018/2019 Power Pass, which includes unlimited access to five ski resorts in Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona.

Adult Power Passes are $599, a savings of $50 over last year. All kids who are in fourth grade (for the 2018/2019 school year) and younger receive a free Power Pass – a savings of $199. The Power Pass sale ends April 20, 2018.

The Power Pass offers unlimited access with no blackout dates to more than 3,300 acres at five resorts, including:  Purgatory Resort, Arizona Snowbowl, Sipapu Ski & Summer Resort, Pajarito Mountain Ski Area, and Hesperus Ski Area.

With the Power Pass, guests can enjoy endless mountain experiences throughout the season at a variety of resorts.  The Power Pass offers three free days at partner ski resorts including Copper Mountain (CO), Loveland Ski Area (CO), Monarch Mountain (CO), Powder Mountain Resort (UT), Eldora Mountain (CO), Sunlight Mountain (CO), Snowy Range Ski Area (WY), and more.  

The Power Pass pays for itself in less than 7 days. Skiers have two convenient payment options. Pay in full or utilize the no-interest payment plan with equal monthly installments. Window lift ticket prices will remain the same as this season.

“We’re excited to offer the lowest price ever on the Power Pass,” stated James Coleman, managing partner of all five resorts. “By lowering our pass prices, we’re continuing our goal of making skiing more affordable while offering an excellent value.”

New this Year – Summer Options!

A new summer upgrade option provides savings across the board. Add summer activities as a pass benefit by upgrading the Power Pass with the new Summer Adventure Pass. The Summer Adventure Pass provides daily access to five activities at Purgatory Resort, including the new Inferno Mountain Coaster (opening this summer), alpine slide, scenic chairlift, bungee trampoline, family ropes course, stand up paddle boarding and other water sports, big air bag jump, summer tubing, and more. Individually priced at $199, the Summer Adventure Pass may be added to any Power Pass for only $100 - a savings of $99. Window rates for five summer activities are $59.

The Mountain Bike Power Pass is available for an extra $100 with the purchase of a Power Pass, or can be purchased on its own for $199. The bike pass provides unlimited uplift access at Pajarito Mountain and Purgatory Resort, plus three free days at Powderhorn bike park. Pajarito Mountain and Purgatory are enhancing their bike park offerings this season. Purgatory’s crews will add new bike trails, new events and festivals, high-level racing, as well as new clinics and camps. This summer, Pajarito is hosting new bike events, including cross country, enduro races, and downhill racing.

“Our new pass structure provides a lot of great opportunities for our guests,” stated Coleman. “For those who are primarily interested in winter, they save with the new lower priced Power Pass. Our summer-only guests visiting Purgatory or Pajarito now have a new option that saves them money at the ticket window with the new summer passes. And for those who enjoy both seasons, they can easily add the summer option to their pass.”

The Power Pass also offers savings on scenic chairlift rides at Arizona Snowbowl, and discounts on bike and hike chairlift rides at Pajarito Mountain.

Purgatory Resort Passes for Parents, Kids, and Weekday Skiers

The Purgatory Weekday Pass is valid for skiing and riding at Purgatory on Mondays through Fridays (with blackout dates of Dec. 26 – 28 & 31, 2018 and Jan. 1, 2019) for $349 (a $40 savings). The Purgatory Parent Transferable Pass is back again this year and allows parents with children ages 3 or younger to get a pass for $599 – a $50 savings over last year - for either parent to ski, one at a time.  After using their allotted days at Purgatory and Hesperus with the Colorado Ski Country USA Passport Pass, 5th and 6th graders can purchase a season pass for $89 and ski those two resorts.
