The only way to get reasonable lift passes at this point are:
1. Get your armed services buddy to go on base and purchase lift tickets for you
2. Find a buddy with a Summit/Colorado/Epic pass to ride with you and help you score $60 buddy passes the days you ride
3. Bundle it with lodging (only a slight discount)
Lift passes are ridiculous. If you plan to ride more than 5 days, then it would have made financial sense to get a Summit pass back in November (which is what I did). I rode 10 days in all, on two trips... so it was a WIN for me.
