Enhanced voucher offerings for Boot Packers

Greetings Boot Packers,

We were happy to announce more choices and benefits for boot packers at our annual boot packer meeting last week.

New this season, boot packers may choose to receive daily lift tickets instead of a season pass. Each boot packing day is worth one lift ticket. Boot packers can earn a maximum of ten transferable lift tickets.

Boot packers that volunteer 15 days are offered a Premier Pass.

New this season, Premier Passes offered to boot packers  have all of the same Premier Benefits as a regular Premier Pass. 

Premier Benefits include an Ikon Base Pass, friends and family vouchers, discounts on lessons and rentals, and more.

Also new this season, boot packing days are transferable to family and friends. Boot packers may assign their voucher credit to family and friends.

We hope to attract more boot packers with these new offerings. New this season, there is no longer a minimum number of boot packing days required in order to qualify for voucher credit. Boot packers earn voucher credit from their first day of boot packing.

Tell all your friends about the new choices. We hope to see everyone soon.

Let it Snow,

Boot packing 2022-23

Greetings Boot packers,

As the Fall colors reach their peak in the Roaring Fork Valley, we are making plans for the boot packing program this season. The boot packing program will operate in a similar manner as it has for many years. Hopefully, the snow will arrive in a timely manner and we will be able to start boot packing in early November.

Please click on the bootpacking tab at the top of this page on the highlandspatrol.com website and sign up for boot packing this season. The basic information about our boot packing program is available on that bootpacking page. We will most likely schedule our annual organizational boot packer meeting for the third week in October. We will be able to answer any and all questions about bootpacking at the meeting. We will e-mail everyone who has signed up, once the details for the meeting have been finalized.

Thank you for your interest in the Aspen Highlands boot packing program. We look forward to seeing you soon.
