Winter Park Resort 50% off Tubing Hill Voucher 2013/2014 Season

Who needs a coupon for 50% off the Coca-Cola Tubing Hill at Winter Park Resort?   I got a few of these as a perk and don’t really need them.

If one is not a winter season passholder, the hourly rate is $20 – $22 an hour.  Winter Park Resort winter season passholders get an hourly rate of $10/hour.

To get one of my vouchers, I’d like to get a favor in return.   Buy an item on my eBid.net auction website or let me send you an invitation to join eBid.net.  It costs nothing to join.  Upon registration at eBid, I’ll mail you the 50% off coupon for the tubing hill.  I’ll even pay for the stamp.  Purchase an item and I’ll send the coupon with your purchase.

Nothing more complicated than that.  I won’t spam you, pester you, and neither will eBid.

eBid.net is a great alternative to eBay.  The fees for small sellers have become prohibitive on the Bay and I’m trying to let people know about it.

The two websites are different but eBid is definitely a friendlier and more customer service oriented bunch.  If you do try it out, one will have to learn the differences before trying to sell there.  Registering to buy is not an issue unless one is up to no good.  Scammers are quickly banished from the site.  No need to worry about 21 day PayPal holds for sellers on eBid either.

To be successful selling on eBid one needs to learn: SEO, the use of keywords, writing for the internet, and writing good item descriptions.  Those who fail to sell refuse to follow or learn any of these techniques.  eBay relies on sheer traffic numbers, eBid.net relies upon organic Google searches.

If one wishes to sell on eBid.net, upgrading from a buyer to a basic seller is free.  Selling can be inexpenise if one chooses not to have a thumbnail picture show up in website search results.  For a mere 3% final value fee, one can sell to the world.  There are no store fees or recurring listing fees.

Anyway, the offer of the 50% off coupon for the WP tubing hill stands.  You’ll save $10 – $12 with little effort on your part.  And that tubing hill is alot of fun.  The attendants will even spin you around at the top so you’ll go spinning down the tube hill.

Still some time to get a discounted ski pass in Colorado for the 2013-14 season

There’s still time to buy a discount ski pass for Colorado resorts for at least the next day or so.  Forget looking for a promotional code.  There are none available.

Colorado residents don’t rely on grocery store lift tickets, they buy a season pass.  Still time to snowboard like a local.

Epic passes are on sale till Dec 6, 2013.  After that you’ll be paying tourist prices for multi-day or single day lift tickets.  Buy at snow.com.

The Rocky Mountain Super passes are on sale till Dec 15, 2013.   They can still be purchased online at skicolorado.com.  Winter Park is also offering a two day pass for $97 for a limited time.  Blackout days apply.  Buy here.

Smaller non-destination resorts still have their passes available too.  Check their website for purchase.  Expect sales to stop within the next week or two.

The Mountain Collective pass is still available too.  Get two days on-slope at eight world class ski resorts you’ve read about in Ski and Skiing.  50% off additional days   Expect sales to stop any day now.  Buy at http://mountaincollective.com/

Still time to get free or discount lift tickets for the kiddo’s too.  The 5th and 6th Grade Passports are still on sale.  Vail Resorts School of Shred pass sales stopped November 24, 2013.

The snow has been falling pretty hard across the high country in Colorado.  Conditions are most excellent for skiing, snowboarding, and skibiking.  And skibiking is now permitted at Crested Butte this season too!

2013 Colorado Fall Ski Pass Sales Set to Start this weekend

by G. Kunkel

Time for the annual pass sales in Colorado.  Powder Daze, Sniagrab, and Ski Rex are all just around the corner.  Christy Sports starts off first on August 23, 2013 at Powder Daze in Denver with additional location in Steamboat Springs and Dillon.

Powder Daze

The best ski pass purchase location for Front Rangers looking to buy a 4 pack to Copper Mountain or Winter Park is Powder Daze.  Purchasers get a fifth bonus skiing day for free. The bonus day pass can only be purchased during the Labor Day weekend in Denver.

New to the discount fray is Steamboat.   They’ll be offering a 3 Day Pass for $99.  It only has one blackout period after Christmas.  It doesn’t specify if it is a picture pass or transferable.  At this price, don’t count on it.   Anyone needing a pass should show up to buy one and smile for the camera.

Aspen/Snowmass will also be present selling their 5-day and 7-day Classic Passes.  Adult, Child, and College passes will be available to purchase over Labor Day.  All new passes must be purchased in person.

Other ski resorts with special offers include: Loveland Ski Area, A-Basin, Monarch Mountain, and more.

Information at http://www.christysports.com/powderdaze/

Sniagrab

White tents will once again lineup along Broadway at the downtown Denver Sportcastle Sports Authority location over Labor Day weekend.  Under the tents one can purchase a variety of passes and specially priced lift tickets from Vail Resorts, Winter Park, Steamboat, Loveland, and many more.

Passes can be renewed or new ones purchased.  New passholders will need a picture taken if the ski resort doesn’t have a picture on file.   Vail Resorts (Breckenridge, Vail, Beaver Creek, Keystone) stores pictures for decades.  I’m using one from about 15 years ago.

Ski Rex

Colorado Ski and Golf will fire up Ski Rex over Labor Day weekend at five area locations and at Boulder Ski Deals.  Get your discount passes and recycle your old ski gear at the same time.  Old gear will be accepted at the five Ski Rex locations starting Sept. 4, 2013.

More information at http://www.coloradoskiandgolf.com/save_big

If you missed the best time to buy your season pass in Colorado (April pass sales),  now is the best time to purchase an Epic Pass or your Rocky Mountain Super Pass.

One does not need to be a Colorado resident or even be in the state to purchase a pass.  They can all be purchased online too.  Check out skicolorado.com, snow.com, or the ski areas website.  Don’t wait past November or you’ll be left out in the cold.

Don’t forget – they aren’t included in the price of the lesson.
