Discounts for passholders too
Crested Butte Mountain Resort (CBMR) and the Telluride Montrose Regional Air Organization (TMRAO) have recently partnered with Allegiant Airlines to service direct nonstop flights to the Montrose Regional Airport from Oakland International Airport (OAK) and Phoenix-Mesa airport (IWA), essentially opening up two new air-served markets for the resorts and the region.
To continue collaboration, Crested Butte Mountain Resort and Telluride Ski Resort have teamed up to launch an interchangeable lift ticket, the Telluride–Crested Butte Ultimate 6 Pass; a six-visit pass that is good for three days of skiing and riding at Crested Butte and three days at Telluride. Guests can now use the centrally located airport for their travel arrangements and have the opportunity to ski both renowned resorts in one vacation.
In addition, the resorts have partnered to also give full season pass holders the opportunity to take advantage of skiing reciprocity privileges.
“This is a unique opportunity for ski enthusiasts to experience Southwest Colorado skiing at multiple resorts in a single trip,” said Ken Stone, executive director of marketing and sales at Telluride Ski Resort. “This product allows much easier access to each resort.”
The T-CB Ultimate 6 Pass is available for $399 at and through each resort’s websites.
The price point is extremely attractive, as it equates to $66.50 per day; an approximate 30 percent discount off window tickets prices. Once the first three visits have been used at each resort, additional days may be added on at a 20 percent discount off the single-day window rate throughout the rest of the season.
“The Telluride–Crested Butte Ultimate 6 Pass is a great value for both destination and skiers and riders in the region, essentially bridging the Elk Mountains and the San Juans,” adds Scott Clarkson, vice president of sales and marketing at Crested Butte Mountain Resort. “Plus, the Ultimate 6 Pass represents a terrific savings over daily lift tickets. We have also included a 50 percent discount for each resorts’ season pass holders.”
The T–CB Ultimate 6 Pass is available in limited quantities until December 15, 2012 exclusively through Liftopia. To purchase, please visit, or
For those who are already committed to skiing either of the resorts, holding a full Season Pass at Telluride Ski Resort or a Platinum or Gold Pass to CBMR, they can now enjoy discounted privileges at the opposite ski area. Each pass holder can purchase lift tickets at the other ski area for 50 percent off the window rate. Each pass holder is allowed one ticket per day, with blackout dates of December 27 through December 31, 2012.
