Save Money Skiing


Skiers and boarders: It's time to seize the moment and save some dough before you hit the slopes.

Mark your calendars for Monday, Feb. 15, when Bogus Basin Mountain Recreation Area brings back its $199 season pass sale. Before you start squealing with glee, let us give you some details: Not only do you get to hit the Bogus slopes as much as your winter-loving heart desires through the 2010-2011 season, you can also use that same pass to ski for the rest of this season.

But if you want this killer deal, you must act quickly--the $199 deal is only available through Sunday, Feb. 21. And if you come in a family pack, the one-week-only deal includes an $800 family pass.

Passes can be purchased at, by calling 208-332-5162 or in person at 2600 Bogus Basin Road. Don't even try to buy them on the mountain.

If you're planning more of a getaway, you can save some cash by making a stop at valley Costco locations, which are selling adult lift tickets to Sun Valley Resort and The Canyons Resort in Park City, Utah. Two tickets to Sun Valley cost $127.99 (plus tax) compared to the day ticket price of $82 per person, and two tickets to The Canyons are a mere $109.99 compared to the $81 price tag for a single day ticket charged on the mountain.
