Default Aspen

Hello to everyone.
I'm student from Russia (from Moscow State University) and i have some questions.
I and my girlfriend want to visit Aspen from 24 feb to 3 march. So, ski pass in Aspen cost about 700$ isn't it? It's so expensive! Have any sales for students? We have ISIC cards and students tickets.
So, and say me please - we want big snow park and freeride. Is Aspen best for it? Have Jackson Hole snow park?

Well Aspen is probably the most expensive resort in CO, so there is that to start.

Is ski pass by 700$ per week for 1 person? Can we use it together?

Its $119 a day unless you buy 7 days in advance and each pass is only good for one person and cannot be shared, but it is good for all 4 mountains.

I was going to get a lesson for a day and I figured that the lift ticket might be included in the lesson fee, but NO the lift ticket is sold separately...If you are interested in cost Aspen really isn't the place to go. Aspen is Super Expensive.

I realize there is a language barrier here, but Aspen is not gonna get cheap unless you arrange all your shit with the mafia on your side before you come.

Aspen is not even easy to get to. You are bypassing many other mountains, every one of them cheaper, to get there, yet you continue to ask about pricing.

short, less asshole answer: yes there are cheaper alternatives, as in, every mountain here.

You should purchase lift tickets online? yes, but this late in the season, very little discounts to be had. Buy season pass before December. Shred cheaper mountain. This is tough for you so soon before you come, you can get 2 for 1's or 4 packs, craigslist has tickets...just ....Aspen...no. check out Copper for 2 for 1's; craigslist for 4 packs and other bundles, King Soopers usually has a coupon book you can buy with some discounted tix, or just go to a cheaper resort (Loveland, Monarch, etc).

No other alternatives, no way to get a pass cheaper unless you buy 7 days in advance and then they will give you a $10 discount. You can't really save money at Aspen. If you want to save money goto Copper Mountain or Loveland.

You need a pass to access ANYTHING on the mountain. I realize you want to save money, but you can't really save money at Aspen. I am going in a few days and believe me that I looked for any way to save money and I found none except for buying the passes over the internet 7 days in advance.

If cost is your issue, there are many alternatives to Mountains just as good as Aspen, for a lot cheaper, in Colorado.
Aspen is the place to go to if you smoke expensive cigars and drink scotch with your pinky in the air
