Fully Transferable Pass Provides Unlimited Skiing at 21 Premier Colorado Resorts

Denver, Colo. – July 27, 2009 – Colorado Ski Country USA (CSCUSA) announced today that the exclusive Colorado Gold Pass is now available for the 2009-10 ski season. The transferable pass, good for unlimited skiing and riding at member resorts, can be purchased for $2,750. 
 


The Colorado Gold Pass is widely considered the most coveted ski pass in the ski community. Unlike many lift tickets, the Gold Pass does not have any black out dates, therefore resorts will accept the pass every day of the season. Additionally, Colorado Gold Pass holders enjoy direct-to-lift access at just about every resort, which means skiers and riders are not required to stop by the ticket office – a handy feature for Colorado’s frequent powder days. The unique transferability of the pass means that the purchaser can easily share the pass with employees, clients, family and friends. 
 


Available in limited quantities, the Gold Pass is the only pass of its kind in Colorado. “The Colorado Gold Pass features all of the best pass-perks rolled into one: unlimited days at Colorado’s best ski resorts, full transferability and direct-to-lift access,” explains Melanie Mills, president and CEO of Colorado Ski Country USA. “It’s a sensible option for businesses and people that want to loan it out to clients and associates, or those who want to use it themselves on a powder day.” 
 


CSCUSA Colorado Gold Pass purchasers also enjoy added benefits of owning the pass, not the least of which is entrée into Colorado’s world-famous ski industry, complete with an invitation to Colorado Ski Country USA’s 47th Annual Meeting. Pass holders also enjoy access to the Gold Pass concierge service, the added benefit of a personal contact to assist when unplanned circumstances arise.
