2017-18 season pass includes Winter Park

Snow stacks up on a sign at the Steamboat Ski Area.

— The adult season pass at the Steamboat Ski Area will cost $50 more for the 2017-18 season, but it includes unlimited skiing at Winter Park.

Adults will pay $1,149 for a pass if it is purchased by May 31. Passes go on sale March 15.

New this year, the ski area is offering a payment plan.

With a $49 down payment, people can make monthly payments through November until the pass is paid off.

"This winter is still in full swing, but it's a great time to start planning for next year's snow adventures," vice president of sales and marketing Katie Brown said in a news release. "We're excited to offer our season passholders new benefits, including unlimited skiing and riding at our sister resort, Winter Park, as well as an option that allows passholders to pay for their passes over time."

The cost of a teenager pass will stay at $599, but others will pay more.
