The first dusting of snow has already fallen in the mountains and snowriders can get their best deals on lift tickets if they buy them within the next 10 days.
Even that could change.
In the past resorts have subsequently extended deadlines.
This year season passes for major resorts will be available for under $400.
Vail Resorts' Summit Pass, good for Breckenridge, Keystone and Arapahoe Basin, will go for $379 for adults, $299 for teens and $189 for children.
The Colorado Pass, good for the same resorts plus 10 days at Vail or Beaver Creek, go for $40 more.
For those willing to shell out $999, Intrawest offers a pass to ski all season at Winter Park, Copper Mountain and Steamboat resorts.
That's a couple of hundred dollars less than a season pass cost for some of the state's top resorts in the late 1990s.
