wolf creek does local,student,and some other types of discounts every month for half price tickets. on wednesdays i think...its worth checking their website/bookface page.
wolf creek lodge in south fork had some super duper cheap special cause they just remodeled/new owners.
If youre looking to treat yourself to a 'fancy' trip the stay and ski package at the springs inn is the best deal for room/tickets/and 24 hr springs access. IDK about dogs. they are all anal and upscale now. and it is quite pricey, but so nice to walk the springs, especially later at night when its quiet.for me, its worth it to treat the family to the springs once a winter,cause theres nothing quite like that in NM....And then I dirtbag it on any other trips.
Make sure and bug em about the stay and ski,cause Idont think they like to sell package that any more. they have 'older' rooms that are more likely dog friendly if at all. they are cheaper either way.
also it costs $17.00 just for springs access, and they are limiting the # of trips you get in and out in 24 hours. (like staying across the street for cheaper and going to the springs...they get all butthurt about it and it may be a one time use pass now. =/ )
that aspect of the 'new' springs inn is really lame, and there are no more cheap local prices or season passes or whatever... =/
which reminds me there is a new place by the movie theater in Pagosa with hot tubs that is not nearly as spiffy as the springs, but its only like $8.00. so its a good alternative for a quick soak before hitting the road on the last day. and they have a cool rooftop tub. and beer at the front desk =]
Hope that helps...I need to get up there soon as well!
