Employees of Chamber businesses eligible
Was that snow on the peaks late last week or just an accumulation of hail? Either way, it’s a reminder that ski and snowboard season is closer than you think.
Case in point: On September 1, business passes to Crested Butte Mountain Resort (CBMR) go on sale through the Crested Butte-Mt. Crested Butte Chamber of Commerce.
The Chamber administers the program, thus absorbing some of costs associated with processing passes. All Chamber members are eligible to participate in the program and provide discounted season passes to their employees.
The early-season rates are good through December 10, 2010. There is a minimum purchase of two passes, and buyers need to be able to provide employment verification for every pass sold, if requested, according to Chamber operations/member relations manager Kristen Van Hoesen.
“In general, the process is the same as it was last year—the entire program will be administered by the Chamber,” Van Hoesen said. “Passes will be ordered and paid for here, and then each employee will go to the ticket office to retrieve their pass. There will no longer be lag time between when you order your pass at the Chamber, and when it’s available from the pass office.”
Van Hoesen said there were a few “hiccups” with the first-year program last year, but they have ironed out the system and it’s now completely streamlined and on-line.
A letter announcing the pricing tiers and other details went out to Chamber members on Monday, August 16.
If you’re purchasing a pass on your own and not through a business, the early-season pricing runs until Friday, September 24.
