That’s the price of the “Ultimate Ski Pass” being offered by Aspen Skiing Co. (ASC), owner and operator of Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands, Buttermilk and Snowmass, all in western Colorado. No more than 18 of the passes are being sold by the ski company and one has already been snatched up, but prospective buyers need not be in any hurry as the resort company typically only sells two or three of them in a season.

The fully transferable pass allows its holder to bring up to three friends along for the day and also includes such perks as meeting members of the U.S. Ski Team at its annual stop in Aspen, a ride along with the grooming team, a personal tour of the slopes with a member of ASC’s upper management, a behind-the-scenes tour with ski patrol, and more.

Proceeds from sales of the Ultimate Ski Pass benefit public schools in Colorado’s Roaring Fork Valley and support the Aspen Winternational World Cup stop.

Anyone interested in purchasing an Ultimate Ski Pass should contact ASC president and CEO Mike Kaplan directly.
