Colorado Cross Country Skiing – Already!



For $99, pass includes 12 trail access passes at six Colorado resorts


2016-17 Ski season is fast approaching: resorts are firing up snow making equipment, the temperature is dropping and Mother Nature is doing her best to don her winter wear. As you break out your snow season gear, don’t forget about your Nordic skis, snowshoes and fat bikes. There’s a whole other winter world out there, and Colorado Cross Country Ski Association (CCCSA) is making exploration easier.

The CCCSA 2016-17 Punch Pass is on sale now for $99. Similar to a ski resort pass, the Punch Pass allows purchasers to discover the snow, but on Nordic trails at six different resorts.

“Colorado has some of the finest Nordic experiences in the country and we want people to have the opportunity to explore them,” said Igor Guziur of Devil’s Thumb Ranch. “With six different resorts to experience, it’s a great way to see a side of Colorado that you may not have visited before.”

The punch passes are valid for two trail passes to Breckenridge Nordic, Crested Butte Nordic, Devil’s Thumb Ranch, Keystone Nordic, Snow Mountain Ranch and Tennessee Pass Nordic Center. The passes are transferable, so two people could share a pass for double the fun at each resort. Additional discounts on rentals, tours and lodging with specified partners are also included in the pass.
