Steamboat Springs Steamboat Ski Area season pass holders may not want to put their skis away quite yet.
The passes are now good for free skiing at Winter Park, which has seen fresh snow.
“It snowed pretty hard here today,” Winter Park spokesman Steve Hurlbert said Wednesday. “I think we got a couple of inches today.”
Anyone with a season pass can redeem their free lift ticket at the Winter Park ticket office.
Steamboat season passes for the 2017-18 include unlimited skiing at Winter Park.
The resort will have 2,300 acres of skiable terrain through Sunday.
The resort extended its season and will then offer 1,400 acres of terrain on the Mary Jane part of the resort through April 30. That will include access to Parsenn Bowl.
More snow is expected at Winter Park.
Meteorologist Joel Gratz, with opensnow.com, wrote the next storm will bring precipitation Thursday and Friday.
“We should see average snow amounts in the 3- to 6-inch range in the central and northern mountains from Thursday afternoon through Saturday morning,” Gratz said. “If a few heavier cells hit certain areas, 10-plus inches isn’t out of the question by Saturday morning. The best time to enjoy some of this thicker powder will be on Friday and again Saturday morning.”
