The exclusive passes also allow holders to meet members of the U.S. Women's Ski Team, along with other perks.
It's the third year the ski resort has sold the high-cost ski passes. The Aspen Times reports (http://goo.gl/VOLhK ) that Aspen Skiing Co. says it is offering 18 of the passes this season and has sold one.
The "Ultimate Ski Pass" has perks for more than just the few who can afford it. The passes raise money for public schools in the Roaring Fork Valley and support events tied to World Cup ski racing in Aspen.
