Default Ticket deals in Summit County

Anyone local to the Keystone area have knowledge to ticket deals after arriving? My boss is covering the expenses of this trip and has his heart set on Keystone as he is a skier.

I didn't buy tix online as I am going to try and sway him to A-basin during the day.

Are there any local deals that might save a guy a few bucks?

Also, are there any must see Snowboard shops in Breck? ( Shops in Indiana and OHIO dont have much selection.)

We will be there next week. Maybe I will run into some fellow froum memebers on the slopes or at the bar

Also since I created a thread. Suggestions on what to wear to stay dry without sweating my ass off. I have never tried to board when it is above 30* F so I am a little lost there.

The best deals are next to none. The local grocery stores and shops in Denver sell slightly discounted tickets. You can also pick up the same discount tickets in Idaho Springs and Dumont on the way up 70. After that it's full pop I believe. Either way expect to pay north of $70 a day on tix. You might look here to see if there is anything else.

When it's warm out, I go with shorts, t-shirt, and shells. This is why none of my outerwear is insulated. I can layer up underneath when it's cold, but when it's not bitter cold, I can go light underneath and not be sweating my ass off. Well, who's lying, I'm gonna be sweating my ass off no matter what, that's just the way I roll. It just lessens it slightly.

Thanks Guys, I assumed lift deals would be hard to find. I will check on the way in. A few bucks saved gettin up the hill = another Redbull and vodka at the lodge... LOL


I guess I got lucky with my gear then, I only have shells also. Being too far north of 180lbs my self, I am certain the riding in temps above 45 is going to be a lot of sweating no matter what I do.

The only deal you'll find in the county is at the ticket Kiosk in stores like Mountain Sports Outlet and it only saves you like 3 bucks and the hassle of standing around with your thumb in your ass at the ticket window.

As far as must see shops we have shops I don't think they're really must see I live here and refuse to support them.

I will echo that there aren't really any "core" shops here. Mostly VR owned or small independent shops that simply can't afford to have a decent selection.

Abay has a 3 day special going on now, not Keystone, but decent. Looks like the $299 Abay season pass with bonus days to Key and Breck are gone. Keystone has already been melting, so if your trip is planned for late March into early April it is going to be textbook variable conditions. Ice, slush, exposed sides of the runs. Not sure why him skiing would make him want to go to Keystone regardless though.

I prefer A basin, but his familiy has hit Keystone on Spring break for the last 8 years and they haven't skied anywhere but K-stone.

I may go to A.b. alone if I have to. It's not hard to find someone to ride with... LOL
