Planning a Colorado adventure on a budget? Don’t worry, we have you covered! This blog will outline some insider knowledge that'll help you have an authentic Colorado experience while not breaking the bank. Let’s get started:

Visit Midweek:

If want to save some money and have the most enjoyable experience possible, visit during the middle of the week! During the middle of the week everything is a little cheaper and we aren’t nearly as busy compared to the weekend. You'll get the best prices, no lines, breeze through the rental shop, and it’ll feel like you have the whole mountain to yourself!

Pro Tip: Generally, Monday-Thursday will have cheaper reservations and no crowds BUT there are certain holidays that are exceptions. Like the Monday of President’s Day weekend and college spring breaks (Mid/Late March.)

Book EVERYTHING online ahead of time:

Online advance purchases will guarantee you the best possible prices, whether it’s lift tickets, tubing reservations or rentals. It will also save you the hassle of purchasing at the ticket window and the potential of being turned away because we are sold out. If you arrive without reservations we cannot guarantee we will have a spot for you. We can guarantee you'll pay more at the window!

Pro Tip: Our online lift ticket sales turn off at 11:59 PM the night before each day, so make sure you’re making those reservations well in advance. Don’t be a Last-Minute Larry! It could come back to bite ya!

Take advantage of our partnership with The Origin Hotel:

If you’re visiting from out of town and are searching for an affordable place to stay, we’ve got you covered!
