— Steamboat Ski Area season pass holders will pay 5 percent more for the 2016-17 season.

The passes went on sale Thursday. If purchased by June 1, an adult season pass will cost $1,099. This season the pass cost $1,049.

Those wanting to lock in the cheapest rate can pay $99 down and a final payment on Sept. 12.

Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association members will again be allowed to take advantage of the merchant program for their employees.

“It’s never too early to start thinking about the next ski and snowboard season in Steamboat,” Steamboat Ski and Resort Corp. vice president of sales and marketing Katie Brown said in a news release. “We’re bringing back popular programs such as the Kids/Grandkids Ski Free pass program, First Tracks and night passes while also providing new products such as the Steamboat 8 pass and an insurance option to deliver value and peace of mind on a season full of fun.”

The option to add on night skiing to a season pass is again $59. The First Tracks add-on, which allows people to board the Gondola between 8 and 8:15 a.m., will cost $399, up from $359 this ski season. A limited number of First Tracks passes are available, and Ski Corp. expects them to sell out.

Ski Corp. will be selling an eight-day pass for $499 and a 15-day pass for $859.

Adult pass holders will again be able to get a limited number of discounted lift tickets for friends and family. They will be able to purchase four regular-season passes for $89 and four early- or late-season passes for $65.

Parents, grandparents and legal guardians who purchase a season pass can receive one season pass for a child 12 years old and younger.

Ski Corp. also offers season pass add-ons for access to other resorts.
