    If anyone plans on being in Colorado the Gems card is a good deal. We compliment our Epic Pass with 4 of these cards. It is $25 and you get two 2fers or two 30% a single lift ticket at 9 ski areas so 18 2fers. We generally hit Loveland and Ski Cooper and use them at A Basin for friends and family. Last year we hit Sunlight, Monarch and Eldora as well.

    BTW the Fox 44 card is a decent deal. We bought it in the past and generally managed to hit 5-6 ski areas. But we also lived in central NH. We were able to day trip them all.

    ^ you're right. Someone might want to take this over, I'm not coming back to update it.

    Guidelines:
    Redundancy - If there are multiple ways to save at a given resort, I'll aim to list them all unless disqualified by guidelines below.
    Combo Card Responsibility - Value & Combo Card offers change yearly and sometimes update on floating basis. You may be looking at last year's information, so verify before you buy.
    Season & Combo Passes - Season passes, MAX/IKON/etc passes, and other deals which require a high initial buy-in and extensive commitment will not be listed. Benefits given as add-ons to a Season Pass purchase will not be listed. However if a mountain offers a deep ticket discount to *other* pass holders that may be listed as it would cover more people.
    Small Deals - Some combo/value cards will have numerous "small deals" (ie, $10 off or 15% off). I will avoid listing these individually.
    Bad Deals - A "bad deal" is sometimes better than no deal at all. I am mostly thinking about certain multi-ticket packs offered by some destination resorts. In most cases I will post these anyway, you decide.
    Contributions - Keep it positive, keep it productive. It's the nature of this forum that one person has to create and maintain a thread like this. But we had many requests for this, so please contribute and make this a group effort. It will never be a perfect list, and anyone is welcome to create a better one, especially if unable to contribute in a reasonable way here.

    I have not been for the last couple seasons, but when I had a pass usually North peak was open by Thanksgiving, except upper flume, along with several TTB routes from the gondola.

    I went the weekend before thanksgiving last year and they had flying fox ttb and lower walking boss open on north peak. They can blow open a few of the gondola blues pretty quick, so I imagine a number of those are in play relatively early.

    I'm not sure what this thread is. This is just confusing. Just like past years, there should be a single skiing on the cheap thread, with a sticky. This is a very important thread.

    Not sure why that happened. Most of the mountain deals are out by end of November. Would not take too much upkeep after that.

    After swearing I was not going back to another Warren Miller film, the free tickets have me likely going back again. Last year I got some free ski straps so there's that too. How ironic will this years film be?
