Does King Soopers grocery stores still offer those 2 for 1 lift ticket deals? I skied Monarch at half price like 10 times in 09' on that deal just by selling the spare lift ticket at half off to someone standing in line at the ski lodge ticket office.

Living Social has a deal for $7 admission fee to the Ski Expo in Denver in November. Is this expo worth going to? Any spectacular deals on equipment/passes?

so the Epic Pass vs the Winter Park pass. I've done the Epic the last three years and it's been great; I'm thinking of snagging the Winter Park one this season though. The catch: I've never been to Winter Park. I've heard great things -- can I go wrong? How's it getting there from Denver? Any advice is greatly appreciated.

After last year, I'm not as gung ho about getting in more than 10-20 days. The Winter Park one saves me about $150. Times are tough, all.

What kind of skiing do you do? A few years ago I got a 4 pack and skiied exclusively on the Mary Jane side (a lot of mogul runs, chutes, a few back bowls) of the mountain. I liked it a lot. The Winter Park side is good for beginner/ intermediate skiiers.

Winter Park is about a 1.5 hour drive from central Denver in ordinary conditions. Berthoud Pass can get downright nasty at times (as in stay away if you don't have 4x4 and snow tires) and can sometimes get closed, but most of the time the road is dry and driveable in any car. On days when I-70 is backed up, you avoid a lot of the traffic since you don't have to travel as far west on I-70 compared to all the other resorts. Sometimes the parking at Winter Park/Mary Jane is hard to come by. Not really a whole lot "there" in the town either in terms of restaurants and amenities.

It may be a better bang for the buck to just get the Rocky Mountain Super Pass (only $50 more than the WP only pass) so you can ski Copper as well, if weather/ traffic conditions favor one over the other.

You'll get a longer season with Vail Resorts' pass as it includes A Basin.

I haven't skied much at Winter Park, but one thing I recall is there are lots of FLAT traverses to get from one area of the mountain to another. The other thing is if you own or rent a ski-area condo, you're locked into the one resort due to the distance between WP and Copper.

Great advice Vegas and Barry! Thanks!

I'm an intermediate/advanced skier. And I definitely dig the bumps and the challenges that type of terrain presents. I guess after thinking about it, Epic is more of a value because of all those options. EpicMix is a lot of fun, too. What's everyone on this board picking up in terms of passes? 4-packs are smart, too!
