Colorado Ski Resort “Four Packs” and Discounted Lift Tickets

Another money-saving tip is to buy what is called a “4 pack” for your ski resort of choice. A “4 pack” is 4 days of skiing for any 1 person. Typically the ski resorts sell these early in the season, but have also been known to sell them again in late March or in April. Buying late in the season is ideal…unknown to many, April is usually the snowiest month in Colorado!Discount lift tickets are typically widely available through lodging companies and other outlets. You just have to look for the deals!

Valid for 4 non-transferable ski days until the close of the 16/17 ski season

Purchase online or call us at 888-ARAPAHOE.  4 packs are bought in the same fashion that a Keystone Colorado Season Pass is bought. Sales of these types of passes usually end in early November.

So… if you’re thinking of taking your family of four people on the mountain all in one day, you won’t be able to do it with this pass. There are usually rules and restrictions as to the dates you can use the 4 pack, so check the fine print carefully. You can buy all of these types of passes at

  1. Sign up for a Colorado Gem Card. These cards will give you discounts at other ski areas that are farther away. The closest resorts that accept this card are Arapahoe Basin and Loveland Ski areas, offering 2 for 1 tickets on select days and discounts on full price tickets as well. They are inexpensive and the discounts between the different resorts will quickly pay for this purchase.
  2. Know someone with a season pass? Season Pass holders usually can buy a lift ticket for you for a deeply discounted price of $39-$99 with ‘Buddy Passes’. The number of times they can do this is limited.
  3. Don’t forget eBay! Many times people will buy a package deal and not be able to use it.

Either way, MAKE SURE you check the lift tickets carefully to make sure you know what you’re getting. Search around and see what you can find!
  4. Buy an Entertainment book for the Denver area. These books are PACKED with ski coupons. The coupons are for slightly discounted lift tickets. ($5 – $10 off ticket window prices) for NON-Vail Resorts, Inc. places like Copper Mountain, Sunlight, A-Basin, Loveland, Ski Cooper and more. There are also coupons for ski school. Don’t count on any coupons being published for Keystone, Breckenridge, Vail or Beaver Creek. In recent years Vail Resorts, Inc has been reeling in the line on discounted lift tickets and any discounts are getting harder to find through the regular channels. Your best bet is a season pass.
  5. Buy your tickets on the front range in or around Denver. Go to any Safeway or King Soopers grocery stores, or ski and snowboard rental shop. They sell discount lift tickets for most ski areas.

BE CAREFUL Skiing and lift tickets is a serious business and you should NEVER cheat the system. Cheating the system includes using someone else’s season pass, clipping a pass from someone else’s jacket, or buying lift tickets from a resort employee. The consequences include full prosecution, jail time and extremely heavy fines. Skiing is a fun sport, but it costs money to participate…it’s not worth cheating the system.

All lodging guests who have lodging already setup can purchase discounted lift tickets through our affiliates. Please call us for more information so we can verify your reservation and hook you up with the best lift ticket deal around!
