Intrawest offers day at three resorts for $99
Promotion includes Steamboat, Winter Park, Copper Mountain
Steamboat Springs — Intrawest’s three Colorado resorts have rolled out their latest special, targeted at Front Range skiers and riders.
Called the Pow Pow Platter, the promotion offers a $99 package that includes a day each in Steamboat Springs, Copper Mountain and Winter Park. The deal is available “while supplies last” or until Jan. 31, according to a news release sent out Monday.
The Pow Pow Platter is a reference to the Chinese appetizer pu pu platter, which includes a variety of dishes. Rob Perlman, vice president for sales and marketing at Steamboat Ski and Resort Corp., alluded to that in the news release.
“Rather than the wonton, the egg roll and the spare rib, we are offering skiers and riders one unrestricted day each at Steamboat, Winter Park and Copper Mountain for only $99,” Perlman said in the release. “With more than a foot of powder this past weekend and more expected this week, hungry skiers and riders should order quickly before the Pow Pow Platters get 86’d from the menu as quantities are limited.”
Ski Corp. spokeswoman Loryn Kasten said the promotion was aimed at Front Range residents.
“I think this season more than ever we’re noticing skiers and snowboarders staying closer to home but still wanting to have their vacation and get out on the mountain,” Kasten said. “That’s what this is doing, getting them to explore other areas. They’re maybe used to sticking to certain resorts, and we want them to explore our resorts.”
The platter, a photo ID pass, is unrestricted, the release stated, and days do not have to be used consecutively. One ticket is valid for one day at each resort. The platter is available at http://www.powpowplatter.com or by calling 866-763-5958. Those interested must buy them 48 hours in advance and can redeem the pass at any of the three resorts.
Kasten said the Steamboat Ski Area could gauge its success in drawing Front Range skiers at the end of the season by looking at Rocky Mountain Super Pass purchases and the success of promotions such as the platter.
Kasten said she didn’t have skier and rider numbers for Steamboat’s season so far. She added that she was on the slopes Sunday and could “vouch for the Champagne Powder.”
“Clearly, we had almost two feet of snow over the weekend to today, and Mother Nature has definitely been helping our mountain crews to get more and more terrain open,” Kasten said.
