Sunday August 9, 2015 - Email this article to a friend

Prices are going up between $20 and $50 for next season. Passes for 2015/16 go on sale on Monday as the resort tries to attract more locals with family discounts

Employees of the US resort already get a discount and now it is being extended to family members.

The so-called the Chamber Discount will be extended to spouses of eligible employees.

"This year we really wanted to make it easier for local families to spend time on the slopes together," Skico President and CEO, Mike Kaplan.  Skico own and runs the resort.

The Premier Pass will cost $1,749. That is up $50 from last season's price. 

It is a rise of 2.8%.

It offers unlimited skiing during the season with no blackout days at Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands, Buttermilk and Snowmass.

A newly eligible spouse could save $490 on the price of a Premier Pass because of the new policy.

The Double Flex pass, which offers two days per week on the slopes, and the Flex Pass, that gives one day are back for 2015-16.

The Double Flex pass is $1,409, that is an increase of $40.

The Flex Pass without the chamber discount is $959. That is an increase of $40 or 3.1 percent.

The Flex Pass with the spouse discount is $819.

"What we hope it does is spur people to get out to the hill more," said resort spokesman, Jeff Hanle.
