Umm, Cooper not Copper.  Good summary for Colorado though.  I'm paying more attention having made it to 62.  So far, I know that's good for my home mountain Massanutten and Santa Fe.  Not skiing Mnut enough to justify a season pass this winter.

Cooper

Cooper offers several tiers of season passes for older skiers and riders. Seniors age 60 to 69 can purchase a Cooper season pass for only $279 on sale, while Super Seniors age 70 to 79 pay only $149 and Super Seniors+ over the age of 80 get a Cooper season pass completely free.

There are also discounts on daily lift tickets for seniors. Seniors can ski at Cooper for $45, while Super Seniors pay only $35. For more information, visit http://www.skicooper.com.

Copper Mountain

At Copper Mountain, seniors over the age of 70 receive a considerable discount on a season pass. The Copper season pass is currently $389 for seniors, while the Copper Secret! Season pass with early access and a dedicated lift line is $589. Seniors 65 and up also receive a discount on daily and multi-day lift tickets.

For senior skiers and riders at Copper who'd like to explore the mountain with peers, Copper Mountain offers the Over the Hill Gang for skiers aged 50 an up. This group was formed in the early days of the resort and offers group clinics, lift priority access and friendship on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays throughout the season.

Re: Senior Deals

This is much closer to home, and the best senior deal I've found. https://www.sugarbush.com/season-passes/boomer/ And that's gone up from 129, where it was all summer. That's free skiing in my book.

Best deal out west is the Targhee 65 plus senior pass at 389 if purchased in the Spring.

Well, that explains a lot. I've lived in Summit and spent a ton of time there the last four years, and have really taken a liking to Copper. The Super Bee is one of the best chairs in the west. I've always noticed an awful lot of pretty old people there. Now I know why.

Re: Senior Deals

My ski buddy who lives in Albuquerque turned 65 in 2017.  That's when I noticed that the Senior Pass for Taos for 65-79 offers MCP reciprocal benefits for another $100.  He could've had unlimited skiing at TSV plus 50% off at all MCP locations for $600.

Free skiing seems to require getting to 80 is many places these days.  Has been true for Alta all along.  Plenty of seniors over 70 in the Wild Olde Bunch at Alta midweek.  And they don't stick to the groomers at all.  Fun talking to them on the lift, especially the ones from the midwest who spend the ski season renting a condo in SLC.
