Though this ski season isn’t even over yet, resorts are offering some of their best prices on passes for the 2010-2011 season right now.

Ari Stiller-Shulman, spokesman for Colorado Ski Country USA, said many of Colorado’s resorts only guarantee their deepest early-bird prices through April.

“Many resorts will offer other discounts over the summer and leading into next season, too,” Stiller-Shulman said. “Depending on where people like to ski, though, the most significant early-bird discounts could be available right now.”

For example, the Rocky Mountain Super Pass, which is for Winter Park, Copper and Steamboat, is currently $409, and that price is only guaranteed through April 5, he said.

New Epic and Colorado Passes — which grant access to Keystone, Breckenridge, Arapahoe Basin, Vail and Beaver Creek — go on sale April 9. Between then and May 31, a $49 down payment locks in the best price of the season for any of their passes, said Kate Lessman of Vail Resorts.

For students, Eldora Mountain Resort will offer a one-day deal on season passes from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday at the UMC. With a valid student I.D., you can pick up a 2010-2011 season pass, which includes access to the Nordic trails, for $139.

The pass includes access for the rest of this season as well.
