This has got to be one of the best values in Colorado skiing

Crested Butte Mountain Resort (CBMR) has officially announced its pass pricing for the 2013-2014 winter season. After considerable analysis, the resort has decided to completely restructure their previous pass pricing model. The resort is now offering the Peak Pass with prices for adult passes starting at $599. The Peak Pass includes unlimited skiing and riding at the resort with no blackout dates and guests can upgrade to the Peak Pass+ to include Adventure Park access and 2014 summer lift access. As part of the restructure, the resort is also planning on eliminating many of their previous Mountain Card and limited-use products.

“We are hoping that this new pass strategy will really get the market excited about skiing and riding in Crested Butte,” says Ethan Mueller, vice president and general manager of CBMR. “It’s about getting new people to the resort and returning guests to come visit more often.”

The Peak Pass is available at the listed rates May 1 through September 27, 2013. Other perks of the Peak Pass include four Buddy Tickets for every Adult and 70+ passholder. Prices for the Buddy Tickets start at $35 each and vary throughout the season based on the day of use. The full listing of Buddy Ticket prices can be found online at

In addition, guests can upgrade to the Peak Pass+ for $150 for ages seven and older and $100 for children six and under, to include Adventure Park and summer 2014 lift access, as well as resort discounts. The Peak Pass upgrade is available at this price point until July 31, 2013.
