Exceptional Group Discounts available through the symposium — for registrants, as well as accompanying family and friends:

Adult Tickets:

Each of our adult 4-, 5-, 6-, and 7-day tickets includes a free day of skiing.

Why we don’t offer 3-day adult tickets: Since the price of a 4-day ticket includes a free day, we would need to charge the same price for a 3-day ticket, if offered.

Why the 4-day ticket provides the lowest cost per ski day: One out of four days is free, vs. one out of 5, 6, or 7 days for higher denomination tickets.

Child, Teen, Senior Tickets:

Child (ages 7–12), teen (ages 13–17), and senior (ages 65–69) tickets are priced the same ($58/day for multi-day tickets!). Children 6 and under ski free, only the $5 charge for radio frequency card applies (these tickets need to be purchased at a lift ticket window). Over 69? — contact us for information on additional ticket options.

All tickets are valid at all four Aspen Skiing Company ski areas: Snowmass, Aspen, Aspen Highlands, and Buttermilk. Once activated, multi-day tickets are valid for up to 10 days.
