If you have been holding out for a killer Colorado deal, my guess is this is the one. This is the cheapest we have seen Non-Stop flights to Colorado on a legit airline in more than a year. PLUS get 57% off Lift Tickets at A-Basin when you buy 4 days — OR Book two nights at Copper Mountain and get your 3rd night free + 46% off Copper passes.
NY/NJ to Colorado generally runs $275ish — this saves at least 45% and gets you there Non-Stop on United Airlines.
The Colorado deals have been few and far between this fall but with so much competition between airlines it was only a matter of time before someone decided to drop their prices to try to grab some market share.
Luckily for all of us in NY/NJ that decision (by United Airlines) coincided with the opening of A-Basin last week. There is even some cheap flight availability starting NEXT WEEK for anyone who is getting desperate to start their season (or wants to do Halloween on the slopes).
Time to get in gear and get a little of this on the cheap...
Cheap Arapahoe Basin Lift Tickets
One of the best parts about booking this time of year is that most my favorite resorts are still offering their early season ticket packs. While these are really designed to be used on individual days throughout the season by local skiiers / riders, they work just as well for anyone looking to go on a long weekend.
A-Basin has the best deal I could find with a 4 Day Elevation Ticket Pack going for $169 (57% off the normal price). That is going to be really hard to beat for anyone who doesn't already have an Epic pass.
Obviously the one you want is the Elevation pack (last one on that list).
There is also some great availability at a few other resorts on Liftopia depending on the dates you want to go. Check their Colorado region page.
Cheap Copper Mountain Lodging + Tickets
Copper Mountain is also getting in on the early season discounts with one of the best lodging deals we have seen recently. Stay your third night free when you book two (33% off).
That actually stacks with discounted pre-purchased Copper Mountain Lift Tickets that save up to 54% when you go big and purchase multi-day passes on Copper's site.
Availability is pretty easy to find on these, just make sure you are looking at United. The majority goes down in November–Early December then more in January. February has some dates as well but the prices go up another $20 or $30. Even at $187 those February flights are STILL an amazing deal.
