Partner deals key during ski season

Grand Valley skiers and riders spend part of the winter as road warriors, hitting slopes across the state when looking for something different from the Powderhorn scene.

Recognizing that, Powderhorn Mountain Resort offers several special “partner” deals at a handful of Colorado resorts for Powderhorn season-pass holders.

This includes the “Steamboat 5-Pack” for $149 (a $350 value); a three-day package (days do not have to be consecutive) for $169 at Telluride; and 50 percent off unlimited days at Crested Butte Mountain Resort with no blackout dates.

This year, there’s a deal for those who don’t hold a Powderhorn season pass: an interchangeable, six-pack pass to Crested Butte and Telluride for less than $400.

That’s three days at each resort for $66.50 each, about 30 percent off the window price, with no blackout dates and with additional days at 20 percent off the walk-up price.

The T-CB Ultimate 6 Pass is available for $399 at and through each resorts’ websites.

“The Telluride–Crested Butte Ultimate 6 Pass is a great value for both destination and skiers and riders in the region, essentially bridging the Elk Mountains and the San Juans,” said Scott Clarkson, Crested Butte Mountain Resort vice president of sales and marketing.

Also, if a Crested Butte or Telluride season-pass holder wants a day ticket at the other resort, they can get it at half price.

That, however, includes some blackout dates, notably around the holidays, said Tom Watkinson, communication director for Telluride Ski Resort.

“We figure Junction is such a big market for regional skiers that we’re offering a three-day pass at $169 with the purchase of a Powderhorn season pass,” Watkinson said. “There’s no blackout dates, and it’s available immediately.”

Crested Butte is set to open Nov. 21 with its celebrated Ski Free Day.

Telluride has announced a Thanksgiving opening.

The T-CB Ultimate 6 Pass is available in limited quantities until Dec. 15, exclusively through Liftopia. To purchase, visit, or
