Colorado on United for under $110? I'll take it. Usually your only option under $200 is Frontier who charges WAY more for bags (and carry-ons too). This United sale brings these flights in-line with the cheapest prices I have seen to CO all year from Philly.
PLUS 57% off Lift Tickets @ A-Basin or get your 3rd night free at Copper. As of this morning the flights dropped to $107 RT.
Philadelphia to Denver generally runs $220+ on any legit airline — these cheap flights save almost 55% and get you there Non-Stop on United.
And hey... Colorado (namely A-Basin) is already open for season 2017/2018. If you felt like it you guys on the Subscribers list could grab one of the earlier flights listed in your release email and be out there riding next week or the week after.
So yeah, Subscribers get more dates AND deal alerts, the rest of you guys should for sure get on that. Plus it's free.
Cheap Colorado Lift Tickets
Booking early season trips is seriously the best way to get to Colorado for less than an Arm and a Leg. A-basin always has some good discounts and this time around is no different. 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 (bought mine yesterday!).
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 Colorado Lodging
So now you have your lift tickets and your flight... probably going to need a place to stay to convince the gf, fiance, wife (or straggling squad dude) to come along.
To that effect, 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.
Update: Price Drop
So yeah. Some of you probably clicked on a link for $117 RT only to find a $107 price when you got here. That's new this morning as it looks like United is getting nervous they aren't going to sell the seats (earlier December / November) they need to cover costs.
That just means an even better deal that adds up to almost 60% off the normal price.
