Thanks for posting this Scott, that's an awesome deal!
This year is out for me, what with a wedding in El Salvador in November, but I'm watching the seasons passes closely. Next winter I'll probably get the Loveland or Keystone/A-Basin/Breck seasons pass (and get one for Sandra, too), because it takes about six ski days to pay that pass off! And even though it's a nine hour drive, it's a very, very easy drive from KC to Denver. It's not hard to drive, or take a Kincaid bus tour (http://www.kincaidcoach.com/ski.php), or join the local ski club, and make a few trips out to Colorado each year at a pretty reasonable price.
In other words, it's passes like this that cause so many Texans to show up in Colorado!
