  1. Thanks for such a comprehensive review of all the Colorado season pass options. It’s especially great to see most of the independent ski areas banding together to give passholders a visit to other mountains. The senior pass deal at Loveland caught my immediate attention until I checked the website and found that is it for only 70+. Probably need to correct that.

    1. Rob,

      Sorry for getting you excited about the Loveland pass based on my mistake. The mistake has been corrected.

      Sincerely,
      Curtis W.

  2. Thank you for this excellent list. When the copy reads “7 days of skiing at the following resorts (no blackout dates):” does that mean a) a total of 7 days at the resorts on the list or b) 7 days at each of the resorts on the list?

    1. Jon,

      I looked at the Epic Pass’ bonus days again. For some of the resorts I read it as 7 days at each of them, and for some (the Canadian resorts) I read it as 7 total days. I will second all of the other resorts and updated the article accordingly. Thank you for bringing this to my attention.

      – Curtis W.
