    Introducing the Best Value in Skiing: the New Keystone A-Basin Pass Offers Unlimited Colorado Skiing and Riding for just $279

    Keystone Resort continues to provide skiers and riders some of the best offers in the business with the introduction of the new Keystone A-Basin Pass for the 2013-14 Season. Located minutes from I-70, Keystone and Arapahoe Basin offer easy access for skiers and riders from throughout Colorado. Providing unlimited skiing and riding with holiday restrictions, there is no better value in the industry. At just $279 ($199 for children’s passes) through April 14, the pass pays for itself in less than three days and is only $100 more than the cost of a four-pack ticket. Right now, you can lock-in this lowest guaranteed price of the season for only $49 down.

    “If you’re looking for a great value and the most convenient skiing and riding all season, look no further,” said Keystone Resort Vice President and General Manager John Buhler. “We’re thrilled to provide skiers and riders a way to enjoy the mountains all season at such a great price; this is what Keystone is all about and we’re so pleased to have Arapahoe Basin onboard to sweeten the deal.”

    With more than 4,000 acres of skiable terrain accessed on the “Keystone A-Basin Pass”, skiers and riders can enjoy the long groomers and five bowls Keystone is known for, or venture over to Arapahoe Basin for the highest skiable terrain in North America. Passholders will enjoy the convenient location of both resorts, just off I-70 and a quick hour drive from downtown Denver. Keystone and Arapahoe Basin also boast plenty of free, close-in parking with easy access to the respective mountains.

    Keystone is one of the most visited family-focused ski resorts in the country, with numerous events and activities enhancing the family experience beyond the more than 3,000 acres of terrain spread across three peaks. In the resort’s three base areas, families can choose from a range of accommodation options from hassle-free hotel room to condominiums that truly provides all of the comforts of home (many Keystone accommodations include full kitchens and laundry facilities in-unit). Daily programming includes the unique Kidtopia lineup, which features activities and events such as the World’s Largest Snowfort, street performers in Village centers, kids’ après gatherings and a weekly Kidtopia parade.

    Even Keystone’s numerous dining outlets offer unique family options like Der Fondue Chessel, a Bavarian-themed restaurant at 11,444 feet accessed by an enchanting two-gondola ride and horse-drawn sleigh ride dinners, providing a glimpse of what the first settlers in Summit County experienced, but not without a luxurious meal of comfort food favorites and live music.

    Now with the new Keystone A-Basin season pass, families can access an even greater value for the 2013-2014 season. Purchase by April 14 to receive six discounted single-day lift tickets, or “buddy” tickets, to ski with family and friends. All Vail Resorts season pass holders will receive exclusive offers and promotions on lodging, dining, ski rentals, equipment, ski school and special events for the 2013-2014 winter season. Skiers and snowboarders who purchase their passes this spring will also receive special benefits for this summer 2013, including access to sightseeing gondola rides.
