For the upcoming season, a single-day lift ticket for adults starts at $155, according to their website.

Other events throughout the weekend to celebrate 50 years include a golden gala and film premiere of “Snowmass: 50 Years of Mountain Spirit” and the return of Banana Days on Dec. 16, and vintage skiing with a special cabin jump and rail jam jumps on Dec. 17.

You can purchase the $6.50 lift tickets on their website. If you don’t have an Aspen Card, you will be charged an extra $5.
