VAIL, Colorado ” Vail and Beaver Creek won’t raise prices on multi-day lift tickets this year, Vail Resorts announced Friday.

The company is offering discounted rates for advanced ticket bookings of at least three days as a way to encourage people to continue visiting the mountain, despite a tough economy, said Vail Resorts spokeswoman Kelly Ladyga.

“In these economic times, we’re not going to raise the price on four or five days of skiing,” she said. “We want to give our customers the best price this season, and we want to make sure people can continue coming to enjoy Beaver Creek and Vail.”

With the deal, three days of tickets at Vail and Beaver Creek would cost $297, or $89 per day. The discount could save skiers up to $9 a day.

The discount also applies to Vail Resort’s other mountains. Three-day adult rates are $249, or $83 per day, for Breckenridge and Keystone, and $228, or $76 per day, for Heavenly. The highest single-day window rates are $92 for Breckenridge and Keystone, and $82 for Heavenly.

“We recognize these are challenging times for many of our guests and we have taken numerous steps to make it easier for them to visit our world-class mountain resorts this season,” said Rob Katz, chief executive officer for Vail Resorts. “We’re now offering our best lift ticket prices this season to accommodate those who weren’t able to take advantage of the Epic Season Pass.”

The Epic Pass offered unlimited, unrestricted skiing and riding at all five of Vail’s Resorts and initially sold for $579.

Guests can purchase the discounted multi-day rate beginning today, online at http://www.snow.com, through Vail Resorts Central Reservations, or at the resort ticket window.
