TELLURIDE, Colo. (July 14, 2009) –The Telluride Ski Resort announced 2009-2010 season pass pricing today, keeping rates the same as last season. However, if four adults purchase season passes together during the annual Pass Sale, the price drops to 2007 rates. An individual adult season pass will cost $1198 when purchased before October 30th, but the 4Pass will cost just $998/person.
Telluride is also thrilled to announce the opening of Gold Hill Chutes 2-5. This long coveted terrain comes on the heels of Gold Hill Chutes 6-10 opening in 2007-08, and Chute 1 opening in 2008-09. Chutes 2-5 offer wide-open, above treeline couloirs and chutes dropping 1,600 vertical feet. The resort added two WWII area howitzers last season to facilitate control of this terrain, which will open as conditions allow.
The $1,198 adult pass offers a savings of 35% off the regular season pass price of $1,850, while the 4Pass offers a savings of nearly 50%. Junior passes are $175 (ages 13-18) and the kids' rate is $125 (6-12 yrs) during the sale, a savings of 70%. Senior passes are offered at $499 (ages 65 +). With proof of 12 credit hours at an accredited college, College Passes can be purchased at a $299 Pass Sale price, $725 regular price. Children 5 & under pay only a $25 processing fee for a season pass for the convenience of bypassing the ticket line each day. All season passes offer unrestricted skiing and riding. As an added benefit, purchasers of College, Adult and Senior passes will also receive a free subscription to Ski Magazine.
