Ski More, Spend Less: CSCUSA Passes Give You More Mountains for Your Money

Calling all families who want to ski or snowboard together this season: Colorado Ski Country USA now has a pass for teens and parents, along with the fan-favorite kids’ Ski Passport for students in grades 3-6. The Gems Teen Pass and Gems Parent Pass are perfect for busy families who love to ski and have lots of demands on their time during the school season.

“I have high school and middle school students myself, so I know it can be a challenge to fit family ski days in between school, sports, and other activities. Our goal is to make skiing and riding more accessible, and these passes help get families on the slopes to create memories that last a lifetime.”

– Sarah Beatty, Director of Communications for CSCUSA
