Six weeks until A Basin or Loveland probably open. I can’t believe it! A mere two months ago we were grilling out at A Basin for the 4th of July and a campy run down some moguls.

Well, Colorado Ski Country has done it again, selling the Colorado Gems Card for huge savings at resorts like Loveland, A Basin, Ski Cooper, Monarch, and a few others. The card is much like a pass, although without a photo. The card must be presented in person at the ticket window for discounted lift tickets.

Ski or board Loveland all season long for $39. Hit up Sunlight for $40. Enjoy a free day at Monarch in April 2012.
