Steamboat Springs, Colo. (AP) - The price of the Rocky Mountain Super Pass Plus is going downhill.
To get skiers and snowboarders to open their wallets in a tough economy, the pass for unlimited riding next season at Copper Mountain and Winter Park Resorts, plus six days at Steamboat, is on
sale for $399 - $40 less than its debut price last season. The resorts are all owned or operated by Intrawest.
Meanwhile, Vail Resorts is offering its Epic Pass, good for next season at Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone and Arapahoe Basin in Colorado and Heavenly in California, for $579. That's the same introductory price as last season. A-Basin is owned by Dundee Realty Resort Development.
