Aspen Snowmass remains Australia’s favourite American ski destination, for lots of good reasons. The Ski 30 Pass is one of them – an incredible deal for 30 consecutive days of skiing to use anytime between 1 January & 2 April 2017 for $AUD875*.
Of course you get to use it at any of the 4 Aspen Snowmass mountains (for more on those check the current Travel Bible issue), and when combined with accommodation specials for longer stays the costs of an Aspen Snowmass holiday get very reasonable indeed.
New this year you get 2 day’s skiing at Thredbo included too, more incentive to get on it now.

Travelplan are not just Australia’s #1 snow tour operator to Aspen, they have been for many years the #1 international supplier there, and so have pretty impressive buying power which translates to more savings.
And for those who think they can grab a cheap internet deal for less the comparisons are quite startling for a Travelplan package vs leading generic accommodation websites booking the same thing.
The discounts on accommodation run up to 40% at popular condos like The Gant, but the best deals for the Ski 30 Pass and accommodation finish on August 31 so if you are thinking of heading there better get on it soon.
Apart from picking the deal to suit, the biggest question is whether to stay ski in/ski out at massive Snowmass or opt for Aspen town locations. Both have their merit.
For families with younger kids especially Snowmass is so convenient it is ideal. The skiing is so extensive you don’t actually need to check out the other areas either.
But of course if nightlife and a pumping restaurant scene are more you than Aspen is the logical choice.
Whichever you go for you won’t be disappointed. As our correspondent Doctor Peter Steibel points out,

“I guess 300 inches quality Colorado snow and 300 sunny days help. Then there’s good access, 4 mountains, huge variety, a great and authentic town with fantastic shops, restaurants, bars and so much more.
