I think I remember looking last year in Dec/Jan and they were like $2200. That's like pre-epic prices, if season passes cost as much as they used to 5-6 years ago, I'd not be able to afford them

Regular Season December 14th-April 13th $61

Colorado Snowboard Ski Lift Tickets & Packages :: Loveland Ski Area

That is not unreasonable at all by the day. Again, maybe a few bucks off at the grocery store or snow shop. Loveland is a fun mountain too.

If you were just trying to ride cheap, your best bet would've been to pick up Loveland 4 packs, but you missed the boat on that one.

The best deal going right now might be the Shell buy one get one free lift tickets. Have your brother start buying his gas at Shell and racking up those vouchers. $20 or more in gas and you get a buy one get one voucher that's good at Copper, Loveland, Winter Park, and Monarch to list the mountains that would be a reasonable day trip from Castle Rock.

The other thing to consider is that you're gonna be coming out here during very high traffic times. Lots of holiday tourists will be mobbing Vail and Breck and lots of Front Rangers will be making day trips up since they'll be off work. Don't expect light traffic or short lift lines. I would fucking hate to make that day trip from Castle Rock that many days straight during peak holiday season. That's not gonna be fun. Fair warning.

More locals, NYC proximity.

Edit: that's my guess anyways.
