Secure the Best Value in Skiing by October 12 with the Keystone A-Basin Pass™

29 September 2014
KEYSTONE, Colo. — Sept. 29, 2014 — Skiers and riders can grab season-long turns on more than 4,000 combined acres of skiable terrain for just $299 ($219 for children 5 to 12 years old) with the purchase of a Keystone A-Basin Pass™, but these prices are only guaranteed through Sunday, Oct. 12. Keystone Resort and Arapahoe Basin are both conveniently located just minutes from I-70 and within minutes of each other. Returning to the Epic Pass family for the second year, the Keystone A-Basin Pass pays for itself in less than three days on the mountain.
 
Keystone A-Basin Passes provide a full season of skiing and riding at two world-class resorts, with limited holiday restrictions, making it an excellent value. Whether it’s cruising Keystone’s well-known long groomers, award-winning terrain parks or five bowls before taking additional laps during the resort’s unique night skiing offering, or exploring A-Basin’s high alpine terrain, steeps and chutes that have earned them the nickname “The Legend”, snow enthusiasts will find diverse and seemingly unlimited terrain for any level or style of skiing and riding.
 
Equipped with one of the most effective snowmaking systems in the industry, Keystone is annually one of the first resorts along the I-70 corridor to open. Keystone’s Opening Day of Friday, Oct. 31, coupled with Arapahoe Basin’s legendary commitment to one of the longest seasons in the country, provides pass holders with nearly half a year of skiing and riding on one pass. Plus, both resorts offer free parking with easy mountain access, adding to the convenience and value of being a Keystone A-Basin pass holder.
 
By purchasing a pass by Sunday, Oct. 12, skiers and riders will not only take advantage of guaranteeing the best value in skiing for just $299, they’ll also receive six Ski-With-A-Friend lift tickets. The proof is in the pass, and there’s no better way to enjoy two of Colorado’s legendary mountains.
