Bluebird’s Early Bird Season Pass Sale Opens Today; Passes Now Include Free Lift Tickets at Partner Resorts Arapahoe Basin, Powderhorn, and Sunlight

Bluebird Backcountry has announced partnerships with Arapahoe Basin, Powderhorn Mountain Resort, and Sunlight Mountain Resort for the 2022/23 season.

Next season’s passholders at Bluebird Backcountry will receive free lift tickets—with no reservations or blackout dates—at each partner area in 22/23: two tickets at Arapahoe Basin, two tickets at Powderhorn, and one ticket at Sunlight. In return, passholders at each of these areas will get the same number of free day passes with no restrictions at Bluebird Backcountry.

“As a human-powered ski area, Bluebird is naturally different and has its own independent feeling. Our partners at A-Basin, Powderhorn, and Sunlight all share the same spirit, putting the soul of riding first.”

– Bluebird Backcountry Co-founder Erik Lambert

This is the second year in a row that Bluebird has teamed up with Arapahoe Basin.

“The vibe at Bluebird Backcountry is welcoming and incredible.”

– A-Basin Chief Operating Officer Alan Henceroth

A limited number of 22/23 Bluebird Backcountry season passes go on sale at starting March 17. Early Bird season passes start at $189 (or $159 for renewing passholders) and include unlimited access to Bluebird Backcountry as well as all five partner lift tickets. Bluebird season passes also include one free guest pass, five free nights of camping, and unlimited dog passes.

New this spring is a Buy Now, Skin Now deal that gives next winter’s Bluebird season passholders unlimited access to the mountain this spring through closing day, March 27.

“March is the most fun time of year to ski at Bluebird. Warm afternoons, live music, fun events, and of course closing day shenanigans.”

– Erik Lambert

Bluebird is capping season passes at 1,000 for the 22/23 season, and prices go up April 30th.

  1. I ski toured yesterday, only cost gas in my car, yet these guys charge to ski their leased mountain? There’s millions of free acres to ski. Their business model is pretty big city silly, must be from NY.
