Ski families are always on the alert for deals that can make this sport more affordable for everyone. I'm happy to pass along my latest find--a deal called the Gem Card. For those of you who can get out West, the Colorado Gem Pass offers steep discounts. You can save up to 50% off of day passes at 11 mountains.

The Gems Card Deal
For $35 you'll get a pass that entitles you to discounts at 11 different mountains. Pick from:
- Two 2-for-1 or
- Two 30% off or
- One of each*
At EACH of 11 Colorado ski areas. Participating resorts in the 2020-21 Gems Card program include:
- Arapahoe Basin
- Echo Mountain
- Granby Ranch
- Kendall Mountain
- Loveland (check out our review here)
It is a great value option for skiers and riders of all interest and abilities and can get families to mountains where there will likely be fewer crowds. At just $35, the Gems card is one of the best deals in Colorado and pays for itself after only one use. The card provides two 2-for-1 adult lift tickets or two 30-percent (30%) off adult lift tickets at each of the 11 Gems ski areas. Now that we are clear of the holidays, the Gem card is unrestricted during the rest season.
*Discount prices based on the current window price of a full-day adult lift ticket. Gems Cards are non-refundable. Questions about Gems Cards?
Ski Smart this Season
Due to ski areas’ efforts to reduce COVID-19 risks, advance purchase of tickets using the Gems card discounts may be required.
The theme is "Know Before You Go." No family should head to the mountain this year without a bit of research and planning. Visit ski area websites and social media channels and plan ahead before arrival to understand all COVID-19 protocols and guidelines and what is expected during the visit. Guests can also visit CSCUSA’s COVID-19 webpage, ColoradoSki.com/COVID-19, for the most up-to-date information throughout the season and helpful tips to prepare for a visit to a ski area.
