Heard the good news yet? Crested Butte Mountain Resort and Telluride Ski Resort have teamed up to launch an interchangeable lift ticket, the Telluride – Crested Butte Ultimate 6 Pass; a 6-visit pass that is good for 3 days of skiing and riding at Crested Butte and 3 days at Telluride. Out-of-towners can now use the centrally located Montrose airport for travel arrangements and the opportunity to ski both renowned resorts in one vacation. In addition, the resorts have partnered to also give full season pass holders the opportunity to take advantage of skiing reciprocity privileges.
The T-CB Ultimate 6 Pass is available for $399 at Liftopia.com and through each resorts’ websites. The price point is extremely attractive, as it equates to $66.50 per day; an approximate 30% discount off window tickets prices. Once the first 3 visits have been used at each resort, additional days may be added on at a 20% discount off the single-day window rate throughout the rest of the season.
For those who are already committed to skiing either of the resorts, holding a full Season Pass at Telluride Ski Resort or a Platinum or Gold Pass to CBMR, they can now enjoy discounted privileges at the opposite ski area. Each pass holder can purchase lift tickets at the other ski area for 50 percent off the window rate. Each pass holder is allowed one ticket per day and blackout dates of 12/27 – 12/31/2012 apply around the holiday season.
