It’s fall, which means soups and stews are back on the dinner rotation, sweaters and snow boots are once again wardrobe staples, mountain peaks are dressed in white with the season’s first snows — and it’s time to search for lodging deals to book this year’s Colorado ski vacation!

For many people, memories from their family ski trips are filled with images of hot chocolate in ski chalets, comfy beds after a long day on the slopes, and the feeling of a roaring fireplace warming their toes. Lodging is just as important to a memorable ski trip as the skiing itself. There are a lot of choices when booking lodging in Aspen and Snowmass and it can be overwhelming to choose when you don’t know the area, don’t know where to find the best deals and discounts, and don’t know who’s serving the best Bloody Mary in town.

Luckily enough for you, longtime local central reservations agency Stay Aspen Snowmass officially becomes part of the Aspen Skiing Company on November 1, making it easier than ever to plan your getaway to the Rocky Mountains.

3. Discounted Lift Tickets

To celebrate the 60th anniversary of Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk, adult lift tickets are $60/day — that’s more than half off — through December 21 with a Stay Aspen Snowmass lodging package. If you’re not an early season skier, you’ll still always save money on lift tickets by booking your stay with Stay Aspen Snowmass.

4. Kids Ski Free

From January 1 through the end of the season, kids ages 7 through 12 get a free lift ticket for each day of equipment rentals from Four Mountain Sports. Book by the 15th of the month for arrivals in the following month. Kids 6 and under always ski free.

5. It’s Always the Perfect Storm

With the Perfect Storm package, buy a five-night lodging package with four days of lift tickets and get the fifth adult lift ticket free. This offer is good all season long, but must be booked in advance. Always check the Stay Aspen Snowmass website for current specials.
