Alright - it's getting closer. We just have to make it through the fall. Wish we could hibernate it. Hopefully these deals and contests will hold you over for another week.
Big Life Magazine & Jackson
This contest will send you to Jackson, let you stay there, give you Atomic skis, and then let you do the sliding on snow. Big Tings.
K tickets are for sale until 10/13/16. Unlimited K tickets are $66 (instead of $105), and are good all season. If you buy seven unlimited K tickets you get one for free. Midweek K tickets are $56, and have blackout dates.
At the end of the Level 1 Pleasure tour they will give away an Eagle Pass Heli trip. Enter and you could also win some Level 1 swag.
The discount powerhouse - Liftopia is trying to make your life the best ever. The Gear Locker Giveaway is pretty excellent. You could win: a Jones Mountain Twin, a Jones backpack with a shirt for your top half, $500 Liftopia gift card (WOOF!), $500 Evo gift card, a donation of $250 to POW, custom Wagner Skis package, discrete hats for your head, and US Ski Team gear. Here's the link, but maybe you want to take a nap instead. Leave this one for us.
Mt. Bachelor (OR)
Season passes go up after 9/30/16. Right now get 'em for $929. With lift tickets at $92 you only have to go 11 times before you're riding for free. After September 30th the pass goes up to $1,129.
Ski.com & Banff & Lake Louise
Ski.com is giving you four nights and three days of skiing with a friend at Banff & Lake Louise. Yes please.
The Bush now has an early 30's pass! So exciting for those of us who had to go into hiding because a massively expensive season pass was bought instead of paying off student debt. This pass is $699. If you only get 20 days in you'll be paying $34.95 per day. Garnish away government.
You know how much I-70 sucks, right? Denver traffic is getting crazy (everybody move there - starting.... Now!) but wait - you can fly directly into Telluride. Yep. If you book a direct flight there you can stay and ski for $159 per night. Lift tickets are $85, so your room is $74. Donezo.
Wolf Creek (CO)
Wolf Creek is having a season pass sale until 10/2/16. The pass is 25% off at $742. With lift tickets at $66 you have 12 days before you are riding for free. After October 2nd an adult unrestricted pass is $927.
Stay on that grind friendos. The snow will come.
