Colorado Front Range skiers and riders who are already dreaming of floating through the Champagne Powder® snow this winter can plan ahead and get three tickets to Steamboat with the limited-edition Steamboat 3 Pass, starting at $149.

The Steamboat 3 pass offers three days throughout the 2016/17 ski and snowboard season, excluding December 26 through January 10. Limited to one pass per person, the nontransferable Steamboat 3 is available to Colorado residents from August 15 through September 5 for $169 at Steamboat.com/three. A special $149 rate will be available exclusively in-store at the Christy Sports in Littleton (8601 West Cross Drive) from August 26 through September 6 during the Denver Powder Daze event. After September 5, Front Range skiers and riders can purchase the Steamboat 3 pass online for $199 through September 14.

“Planning ahead really does pay off with the Steamboat 3 pass, which offers an unmatched value to ski and ride Steamboat’s world-class terrain for as low as $50 per day,” said Rob Perlman, president and chief operating officer for the Steamboat Ski & Resort Corporation. “You won’t find a lower price to hit the Steamboat slopes this winter.”

Steamboat 3 passes are equipped with radio-frequency identification technology on the resort’s QuickTrax cards, enabling hands-free access to lifts. When a Steamboat passholder goes through the RFID gate, it opens automatically after registering the QuickTrax technology on the Steamboat pass. This means faster and smoother hands-free lift access, mobile app tracking abilities and easy lift ticket reload capabilities.
