Telluride rocks like Foghat

If it weren’t the most beautiful place on Earth, with the coolest people, the craziest steeps, the rockinest back country and a town that makes you feel like the guys from American Grafitti are coming around the block, they are now coming out with all kinds of way to help finance their season pass.

Telluride Ski Resort has announced 2009-2010 season pass pricing, keeping rates the same as last season. Financing is also available on the Adult Season Pass, and skiers can save even more with the 4Pass.

Financing is available for the first time for Adult Season Pass purchasers. The plan will require 50% of the $1,198 sale price due with a $20 processing charge before the Pass Sale end date of October 30th. After which, 25% will be due on December 15th and the final 25% due on January 15th. For more information and to arrange financing, please contact the pass office directly at 970-728-7517.

For even deeper discounts, four adults may purchase the 4Pass together during the annual Pass Sale and save an additional $200 per pass. A regular individual adult season pass costs $1,198 when purchased by October 30, but the 4Pass will cost just $998 per person.

To purchase a 4Pass, go to the website to fill out the 4Pass Registration form. Be sure to have the name, birth date, mailing address and payment information for all four individuals purchasing to complete the 4Pass registration. The 4Pass is a one-time purchase of all four passes and may not be individually purchased at separate times.

The Telluride Pass Sale will run through October 30, with passes available online or by calling 970-728-7517.
