Strong Dollar Terrific News for Aussie Skiers

The strong dollar is terrific news for Australian skiers travelling to Colorado, who already have access to substantial discounts. Colorado specials are more aggressive due to the slower US domestic market. So not only do clients benefit from better exchange rates, they also benefit from greater deals!

For travellers heading to Aspen, our packages for The Gant are currently available from AU$1169 per person. In early 2009, the price for the equivalent package was over AU$400 dearer. In Telluride, our current package price for Mountain Lodge is AU$1212 per person, compared to an early 2009 price of AU$1615. Likewise, staying in Steamboat at Trappeur's Crossing is now available from AU$909, a significant decrease from early 2009 pricing of around AU$1285. For amazing value, our Copper Mountain packages start at AU$699. All packages are based on 7 nights' accommodation in a 2 Bedroom Apartment, 6 day lift pass and tax, 4 share in January 2011. Early booking, specific dates and other conditions apply.

Skiers may simply take advantage of the extra value for money, or perhaps indulge in a more lavish trip than otherwise planned. Lengthening their ski holiday is particularly favourable, as many Colorado resorts offer long stay discounts for accommodation, lift passes and equipment rental.

Travelplan Ski is the world's largest operator to Aspen/Snowmass outside the US, which isn't bad for a little Australian company. Our most popular Aspen property is Aspen Square, and our early booking special of 5th night free, has just been extended. This is combinable with early booking lift pass specials such as Ski 7 Days Pay 6 Days and Ski 14 Pay 8.

In Telluride, the Ski 12 Days Pay 8 Days early booking lift pass special has been extended. Copper Mountain's Ski 7 Days Pay 5 Days early booking lift pass special has been extended, which can be used in conjunction with a kids ski free offer. A kids ski free special is also available at Steamboat, which can be combined with adult specials such as Ski 7 Days Pay 6, Ski 14 Pay 8 and Ski 20 Pay 12. Conditions apply to all specials.
