How to Save $60 or More at Aspen Snowmass This Year

I have already shared how you can ski or board at Snowmass for just $6.50 on one special day this year to celebrate their 50th anniversary, but there is now another deal available to save you money at all of the Aspen Snowmass Mountains.

 

On several of my Amex cards there is an offer to either get a $60 statement credit or 6,000 bonus Amex Membership Reward points when you spend $300 in one or more Aspen Snowmass transactions by January 12, 2018. This is targeted to some Amex cards and not others, but it seems pretty widely targeted, so it is worth logging in to see which Amex Offers are available on your specific Amex card accounts.

As a data point, it is available on my Amex branded cards like The Platinum Card® from American Express but not my co-branded Amex Cards like my Delta or SPG cards. If you are unsure how to load Amex Offers to your Amex cards, check out this post. 

It can be tough to eek out real saving on lift tickets and lessons at many major ski resorts, so this is a fantastic opportunity, especially if you have the offer on more than one of your Amex cards. The terms state that eligible spending includes lift tickets, ski rentals, and ski lessons at Aspen Snowmass Mountains or at AspenSnowmass.com. It is not valid on lodging or otherwise expenses that are charged to your room. Also excluded are retail shops, tours, non-Aspen resorts, spas, Direct to Lift Snowmass, lodging, and dining.

If you were able to use airline miles to fly directly into Aspen, use your SPG points to stay at the slopeside Westin Snowmass or fancy St. Regis Aspen, and then save $60/earn 6,000 bonus Membership Reward points on $300 in Aspen Snowmass lift tickets/rentals/lessons, I’d say you were doing very well with planning your family’s ski trip!

I used a similar Amex Offer to save money while skiing at Park City last year, and if Aspen were in this year’s plans I would absolutely be putting this to offer to good use on a couple of my Amex cards. While we are on the topic, if Aspen is in your family’s winter 2017 – 2018 travel plans, here are some posts from when we made that trek a few years ago. We are very much looking forward to a return Aspen trip, hopefully next ski season!

  1. Nice! I just booked my Snowmass trip this morning. We have one lift ticket day deferred from last season (nice policy) but we can definitely use this for the other tickets. My mom’s account had the 6,000 amex points and my dad’s account has $60 off $300. However, both accounts ALSO have a separate amex offer for $60 off $300 at SPG!

  2. Sounds great. For another datapoint my Amex Blue had $100 off $500 at Steamboat. Fingers crossed for something in Park City…
