Cut rates pushing 50% at resorts including Aspen, Keystone, Breckenridge, Copper and Telluride for last minute vacationers
Despite Christmas being less than two weeks away, many holiday travelers are still looking for deals on lodging at Colorado ski resorts. Unfortunately, traveling to Colorado’s world-class ski resorts is often deemed to be a very expensive endeavor for most people. This is particularly true when the budget is tight, but Gondola Resorts has several December discouns that can make it possible for just about anyone to enjoy a Colorado skiing or snowboarding trip this holiday season.
“If you think about it, the holiday season is the best time to take avantage of discounts on vacation rentals and lodging,” said Gino Malara, Gondola Resorts CEO. “With the stress of the holidays, people are looking for a way to get a way. They need a place where they
can get away from their worries and simply have fun. And, by following a few simple
tips, it really is possible for just about anyone to get a break on prices at any Colorado ski resort.”
In order to save money on a vacation to any ski resort, for example, Gondola Resorts recommends the following tips with the latest and greatest deals still available:
# Book late – by booking late, you can find the best deals and take advantage of the inventory that is still open. Most vacation rental homeowners don’t want their properities to stay open during the holiday season. This is just like throwing away money. Thus, open inventory gets discounted right before the holidays. The strategy – locating the deals.
CURRENT DEAL: Keystone: 1 bedroom/2 bath. Ski/in Ski/out. Sleeps 5. Price last week-$699/nt, this week-$349/nt. Reservations 12/18 – 12/26
# Plan to travel by shuttle – renting a vehicle can be expensive and shuttle services
will get you to all of the major ski resorts via any Colorado airport especially from Denver International Airport.
CURRENT DEAL: 20% off shuttle service from Denver Internation Airport to Breckenridge, Keystone and Copper Mountain
# Book condos – there are many lodging options available in Colorado and you can actually save money on travel and other fees if you work with a vacation rental wholesaler or management company rather than working directly with hotels, orbitz or expedia.com.
# Travel with a group – by traveling with a group of friends and family members, you
can rent one of the many holiday vacation homes or large condos the resorts have to offer and split the costs.
CURRENT DEAL: Telluride, Colorado – 4 bedroom, 3 bath at “Rocky Road” luxury private home. Rates starting at $800/nt
“We truly feel that renting vacation rentals as opposed to other lodging options is
the best way to save money,” continued Mr. Malara. “Not only can you save money on a
per-person basis, you can also save money on expenses such as food because you can cook all of your meals in the kitchen. You won’t find that option with a hotel!”
While a trip to Colorado will still require making a bit of a financial investment, following these simple tips can make this holiday excursion more affordable and attainable. To learn more about renting vacation homes, condos or town homes at Colorado ski resorts, visit GondolaResorts.com.
