Sun Valley issues new lift-ticket rates

Express Staff Writer

Sun Valley Co. this week released its lift-ticket rates for the 2003-2004 winter season, applying small increases to prices of its most popular passes.

This winter, a season pass for skiing and snowboarding at Sun Valley Resort will cost $1,825, $30 more than last winter. Full-day, adult lift tickets during peak season will cost $66, $1 more than last year.

Sun Valley’s 20/20 ski pass—a popular package that permits 20 days of peak-season skiing and 20 days of combined early- and late-season skiing—will cost $825, $30 more than last year. The price of the 20/20 pass was increased $100 last year.

However, those who purchase full-season and 20/20 passes before Oct. 19 will receive a $100 discount on each pass.

Although Sun Valley’s daily lift-ticket rates have been climbing steadily in recent years, they fall in the middle of the price range established by two of the resort’s primary Rocky Mountain region competitors. Wyoming’s Jackson Hole ski area will charge $64 this coming winter for full-day, adult lift passes, while Colorado’s Aspen Skiing Co. will charge $72 for a day pass to access its four ski mountains.

Adult, full-day lift tickets for Dollar Mountain will cost $22, while child tickets will cost $17.

Sun Valley’s Bald Mountain is scheduled to open for skiing on Thursday, Nov. 27, Thanksgiving Day. Early season is scheduled to last through Dec. 13, while the resort’s late season is set to last from March 29 to the final day of skiing—often in mid to late April.
